ALICE BAG is a punk rock singer, musician, author, educator and feminist archivist. Alice was lead singer and co-founder of The Bags, one of the first wave of punk bands to form in the mid-1970's in Los Angeles, CA. 

Her first book, Violence Girl, From East LA Rage to Hollywood Stage is the story of her upbringing in East LA, her eventual migration to Hollywood and the euphoria and aftermath of the first punk wave. Violence Girl reveals how domestic abuse fueled her desire for female empowerment and sheds a new perspective on the origin of hardcore, a style most often associated with white suburban males.

Alice is an author and a former bilingual elementary school teacher. An outspoken activist, feminist and a self-proclaimed troublemaker, Alice has remained active in music since the late 1970's and released her second book in 2015, Pipe Bomb for the Soul.
