Women’s Center for Creative Work: Thank You for This Community—A Dinner at the Hammer
For the event, WCCW Will invite 9 other community-driven projects and organizations to take part in creating and participating in the meal. Each of the entities will provide an aspect of the dinner and event, whether that is table coverings, music, centerpieces or the main course. We will spend two hours on the day of, setting up the meal together, and then sit down with each other at around 4 p.m., to discuss our individual communities and the layering of them to create a larger feminist and creative community in Los Angeles.

This program is part of the Hammer's Bureau of Feminism initiative.
Perennial bad girl and synth/dance/electro-pop princess Sky Ferreira takes the stage to perform in homage to “The Stains” for a special A Band and A Movie show featuring our favorite fictional teen girl band: They’re here and they don’t put out. Babyfaced Diane Lane and Laura Dern ignite the screen with a cinematic rebel yell, a feminist anthem of DIY force that’s both a blueprint for decades of rad music and a prescient foreshadowing of our eat-or-be-eaten media culture. Most of all, it’s a fiery explosion of teen angst, awesome tunes and powerful women. Lane, Dern and Marin Kanter are The Stains, a misfit trio escaping their destined-for-nothing small town lives through sheer will and the sound of punk rock. On tour with the Metal Corpses (fronted by The Tubes’ Fee Waybill) and the Looters (Ray Winstone, giving one of the great actor-as-rock-star performances, and backed by The Clash’s Paul Simonon plus Sex Pistols’ Steve Jones and Paul Cook), the Stains must fight on without burning out. Written by SNL scribe/Oscar-winner Nancy Dowd, and directed by legendary music impresario Lou Adler (Up In Smoke), Stains remains an influential and pointed commentary awaiting rediscovery by a new generation.
Dir. Lou Adler, 1982, 35mm, 87 min.
