Party Picks of the Week: Back to the '90s
5240 Alhambra Ave., El Sereno, Fri., April 26, 8 p.m.-2 a.m.
6510 Santa Monica Blvd., Hlywd., Mon., April 29, 9 p.m.
When it comes to fiendish rock bands, L.A. just doesn't make 'em like we used to. Kommunity FK was one of the creepiest and coolest goth bands in the early '80s and throughout the '90s, and though its biggest hit was 1991's "Something Inside Me Has Died," the band itself has shown it never will.
After reuniting a few times over the past decades, the band (with leader Patrick Mata) is back again after another long hiatus to headline a fetish/bondage ball with fashion show, art, DJs Michael Stewart and Eve O and more bands (Texylvania, Former Humans, Psycho Charger). It's all going down Friday at the Vex, an El Sereno venue as historic as Kommunity FK itself.
