Daniel Villarreal Photo—Tito Larriva of the Plugz

Daniel Villarreal Photo Column—Tito Larriva of the Plugz, presented by Louis Jacinto

Last year, in the middle of the shutdown, I opened an online art gallery. Punks do everything! Currently on exhibit is the work by actor Daniel Villarreal who has an extensive catalog of punk beginning in 1980. Here he captured Plugz front man Tito Larriva at the Atomic Café in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Notice flyers on the window for punk bands The Brat and Nervous Gender. And catch the short documentary, “Atomic Café ” on PBS about how it became a haven for late night punk crawling! –Louis Jacinto
