RIPPED Book Party

DIY and indie rock tee-shirts finally get their due in the new book RIPPED:  TEESHIRTS FROM THE UNDERGROUND, edited by Huntington Park native Cesar Padilla and just published by Rizzoli.  Padilla is a vintage clothing pioneer and has a huge rock tee-shirt collection himself.  He’s also brought in other collectors to build out the tome, which also features essays by Lydia Lunch, Thurston Moore, Betsey Johnson, and other celebs.   Cynthia Plastercaster reads tonight as special guest.
