Vidiots Presents:
A Night of L.A. Punk Rock

There is so much going on at BEYOND BAROQUE, that it is rare that we promote events at venues other than our own. “Under The Big Black Sun” is the exception, because Exene Cervenka met John Doe at the famous Wednesday Night Poetry Workshop at the Beyond Baroque in Venice.
