Yesterday (Feb. 11), the fine folks at Vacation Vinyl in Los Angeles hosted a discussion centered around STRAIGHT EDGE: A Clear-Headed Hardcore Punk History, the recently released book by Tony Rettman.

I had the honor of hosting the panel, which included Dan O'Mahony (No For An Answer, Shiners Club), Vique Simba (Revelation Records, Simba Recordings), Jonathan Anastas (DYS, Slapshot), and Jon Roa (Justice League, End to End). It was a packed house with a lot of positive energy going around, and I wanted to share some photos from the event. Thanks to Mark and Nick from Vacation Vinyl for having us, and photographer Dan Rawe for the use of his images from the day.
