Summer in Erotica
It seems like an odd juxtaposition having Pinback on early before you bring the porn stars in late but that's how Avalon is doing it tonight. Pinback is known for their desire to have all ages shows for their mostly high school and college age fans so it'll probably be a little weird in the parking lots as the kids leave and the adult industry arrive for one of the launch parties for Erotica LA (NSFW). Industry employees get in for free. Everybody else gets in for $25...although we have to wonder if they are going to kick out the paying Pinback audience before re-opening the doors.
Erotica LA, the 8 year old industry showcase and convention, starts today at the LA Convention center.
