JESSE MARTINEZ BENEFIT – Jesse Martinez is one of the founding fathers of the Venice Skateboard Association. The VSA represented the need and value of a skatepark on the site of the Venice Pavilion when it was marked for demolition. After fifteen years of lobbying, the dream finally became reality a little over a year ago and the Venice Skatepark has been one of the most successful parks ever built. It has had a huge impact on the city’s youth and business communities alike. Jesse Martinez has dedicated his life the past year to maintenance and security of the park since its opening. Just before the first anniversary of the skatepark’s opening Jesse was jumped and severely beaten while in service at the park resulting in swelling of the brain and a stack of hospital bills. A benefit at the Good Hurt Night Club in West Los Angeles will take place on December 17th to assist Jesse. This important benefit is an opportunity for the community to give back to someone who has given so much to us freely. Everyone’s donations and attendance at this event will be a chance to help make a difference.

THE STIMULATORS – The long awaited re-issue of this classic NYC punk cassette is available now on CD and vinyl! This record is a must for any self-respecting punk’s collection. After all, are there any three words that sum up the punk sound better than ‘Loud Fast Rules!’? In 1977, after hearing The Damned, Motorhead and The Clash, guitarist Denise Mercedes returned from London and decided to start her own band. She recruited LES poet Patrick Mack on guitar and vocals, artist and fashionista Nick Marden on bass and, after trying out the likes of Jerry Nolan (Heartbreakers, NY Dolls) and Johnny Blitz (Dead Boys) on drums, settled on a then 11 year-old Harley Flanagan (Cro-Mags, Harley’s War). Soon the Stims gained a rabid fan club of the youngest rock n rollers in the city and became regulars at legendary clubs like Max’s Kansas City, CBGB’s and Danceteria, sharing bills with bands like Richard Hell and The Voidoids, Bad Brains, Suicide, B-52s and The Cramps. http://www.roir-usa.com

TOY ART GALLERY – They have names like Lip Vagina Monster and Jumping Brain. They’re made by international artists, Hollywood filmmakers and millionaire executives with creative itches. They sell for thousands of dollars each, and go on to become worth many times more. And they’re toys. High-end, one-of-a-kind toys are the newest offshoot of the ‘low-brow’ art movement – riffs on underground, street and pop culture – born in 1970s Los Angeles. So it makes sense that Hollywood boasts the world’s first Toy Art Gallery. Prolific toy art collectors include Nike CEO Mark Parker, celebrated artist Mark Nagata, and TAG founder Gino Joukar, who opened the gallery not one year ago to share his passion with the world. Toy art is inspired by everything from old Japanese cartoons to music to politics. They’re a diverse bunch, comprising insiders from companies like Pixar and Upper Playground, to Radiohead cover designer Jermaine Rogers, to Carlos Enriquez Gonzalez, the Venezuelan artist whose customers include Jeff Koons, creator of the most expensive piece by a living artist ever auctioned ($25.7 million). http://www.toyartgallery.com
