East Los pocha Alice Bag aka Alicia “Alice” Armendariz (formerly of the The Bags) just released this track in support of Professor Christine Blasey Ford, Ph.D.’s testimony about rapey Judge Brett Kavanaugh.


SoCal pocha punk pioneer Alice Bag’s demo version of this brand new Christmasy song takes no prisoners. Merry Pinches to you! Alice explains it this way:

Here is a sneak peek of a new song conceived by Candace PK Hansen. She really wanted us to have an anti-fascist Christmas song. This is just a demo version, it sounds much better with the whole band, come hear it tonight at Cafe NELA
