Romantic Rock ended the decade with an artistic bang by hosting their fourth Punk Rock and Paintbrushes Holiday art show in Los Angeles. Festivities took place at the Self Help Graphics Art Gallery, which provided a larger space compared to last year’s exhibition; resulting in bigger displays and more contributors. Feature artwork was created from musicians such as Tim Armstrong of Rancid, Matt Hensley of Flogging Molly, Jim Lindberg of Pennywise, Alison Mosshart of The Kills, Monique Powell of Save Ferris, Carla Harvey of Butcher Babies, Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals, and Jack Grisham of T.S.O.L.; tattoo artist Tokyo Hiro; professional skateboarders Steve Caballero and Jason Adams; photographers Madison Stern and Sara Wright, as well as artists Natalia Fabia and Johnny Ness to name a few. The Sound Sisters did a 24 hour turn and burn road trip from Arizona to cover press. Exhaustion be damned, we were hyped while running on art fumes and excellent company infiltrated our entire evening.
