Miss you District Weekly!

I was so sad to hear the District Weekly closed up shop recently. Alternative press is so vital to cultivating community and keeping a city unique - pobre de Long Beach. Raw Judita's husband/photographer/man-about-town Matt Wignall penned a manifesto against the American dental industry, which was going to be published in the District weekly just before it folded. It's fascinating and hilarious - just like Matt, and you can read it here, featuring a cameo appearance by my husband, Ivan Vejar.

Ice Cream Man Benefit - Friday, April 16, Alex's Bar

The super-great Ice Cream Man, whose mission it is to bring free icy treats to the masses at all your favorite shows and get- togethers, is hoping now for some love and generosity. After his ice cream truck was totaled, good friends decided to put on a show to raise money for the repairs. Do your part to give back (you know you love those strawberry shortcake ice cream bars!) and go to Alex's Bar tomorrow night.

Featuring: Repeater, Telomere Repair, Greater California, Bella Novela, the Soft Hands and DJ Phil, at Alex’s Bar, 2913 E. Anaheim St., Long Beach, (562) 434-8292; 16. Call for time.$5, plus optional donation.
