After the amazing Redd Kross - Sonic Youth show at the Greek, we all headed over to an afterparty at El Cid. Thurston had asked punk legends Saccharine Trust to perform their classic album, Pagan Icons. The album thing was kind of a theme. If you want to know where bands like Nirvana got their inspiration from, in addition to Daydream Nation, you really need to add Pagan Icons and Born Innocent to your collection.

There was a good crowd at the party. It was very much a night for old friends; it was not a "scene" crammed with industry types and celebrities. I saw poet SA Griffin, photographer Jonathan Krop, artist Aaron White, musicians Bobby Ho, Sean D Lear, and a bunch of locals from the South Bay and San Pedro.
