Sample text

She was pretty cool but I couldn’t seem to stay out of trouble and her hands were tied. She had let me off a million times but this time I knew I was going down: assault and battery or assault with a deadly weapon—plus, if they threw in a drunk-in-public or an intoxicated-minor charge, not to mention it was a violation of my probation to have even been with Toby and Johnny and I was sure they would find my bag of weed when I got strip-searched. I’d probably have to do a few months. In the Hall everyone knew me.

I thought she was looking great. I passed her my beer and opened a new one. Toby and his girlfriend, Jamie, were arguing about something behind us and it was starting to get dark. Jamie had just moved to Santa Cruz from New York City and she was pregnant. I thought that she was old and gross and I had heard that she’d been doing tricks down in the Beach Flats for drugs. Toby really liked her though. So whatever—I didn’t really care. She had some cool stories about New York. She saw the Sex Pistols in ’77, so I put up with her.

I probably still had that shit-eating grin on my face, happy as could be, peaking on acid. The next group that played was the local band, Bl’ast, whose name I had on my shirt. Jason had made me a tape with them on it. They were great, one of the hardest bands I had ever heard. I listened to that tape almost every day; it had Bl’ast on one side and Black Flag on the other. I couldn’t believe I was about to see them play. When they had all their equipment set up a huge crowd began to gather in front of the stage to witness these local legends perform the hardcore surf punk that was making them well known from coast to coast.
