The recent opening of all-ages DIY venue Bombs Away Books downtown provided a needed cultural respite amidst a ceaseless cycle of apartment construction and chain-store ribbon-cuttings. On Friday, the space hosts an event dubbed “Riot Grrrl & Rap for Racial Justice,” featuring performances from UK queercore artist Ste McCabe, as well as feminist organizer and musician Stella Zine and local hip hop fixture Chrismis. To kick things off, organizers will screen filmmaker Vega Darling’s documentary Lost Grrrls: Riot Grrrl in Los Angeles. ’Tis the season, of course, and organizers say, “Feel free to wear fun costumes, but please do not appropriate a culture that is someone else’s.”
