Joe Carducci Reading

Joe Carducci helped run SST Records in the mid-80s with founder Greg Ginn and Chuck Dukowski of Black Flag, back when the label was a center of the secret rock & roll underground, home to Sonic Youth, Minutemen, Hüsker Dü, Bad Brains, and the Meat Puppets.

He'll be reading from his new book 'Enter Naomi: SST, L.A. and All That', that tells the story of Naomi Petersen, the house photographer for SST, who died in 2003. Following will be a signing and q&a.
"Takes a hard look back at Carducci's time in L.A., at the music and contradictions of that scene, and what it meant to be a woman in the uncompromising world of Black Flag."
“This is an absolutely mesmerizing introduction to L.A.’s punk pantheon of outside musicians, artists, photographers, and performers. As Carducci reminds us, the wild kids on the Strip, the Strand, and the Desert created a potent musical underground in the shadow of the corporate-entertainment industry and it continues to subvert and inspire.”

Here's a feature on Carducci in this week's LA Weekly:
