Punk Rock Photography goes to see and photograph the band L7 on the first night of the Bricks Are Heavy 30th Anniversary tour. Our humble narrator has been listening to this album for 30 years and it still feels like the first time, every time. Punk Rock Photography wants to be L7 when it grows up.
