Now in its fourth year, Punk Rock Social is a monthly event at Alex's Bar in Long Beach. This past weekend, they held the CD release for the Cute Lepers.

LAist Featured Photos contributor Michael Zampelli checked it out, took these wonderful photos and came back with this to say. "The show openers, Prima Donna, were poser-pop and even covered a Beatles song. The joke band of the night was Black Fag, who did a gay send-up of nearly every classic Black Flag song. The front of the stage was more like a Jazzercise class than a mosh pit. The ace in the hole was Sun Trash, whose non-pretentious delivery and expert showmanship was in stark contrast to the other three groups."
