Iconically Me

Last weekend was so busy, I didn’t have a chance to post on here… Another Punk Rock Flea Market is over and now we move onto our Xmas show, which also happens to be the One Year Anniversary show.

If I had to choose a summer from my youth to describe as the best summer ever, hands down it was the summer of 1988.   That summer was the best three months of fun, teenage rebellion, music, and transformation for me; I shaped and formed my future character. I lived every day as if it were my last. It was my “Summer of Anarchy!” and I was a Punk Rock Girl!     The eighties were filled with amazing music, no matter what genre you listened to.
