East L.A. Rage to Hollywood Stage: A Chicana Punk Story!
"The next revolution may be a war of words and ideas rather than guns and bombs. We have our ideology and the tools we need right front of us."

AliceBagChildhood.jpgBorn and raised in East L.A., Alice grew up in a home where speaking a language other than Spanish was forbidden. As a result, Alicia did not speak English when she started school and recalls crying when a frustrated teacher yelled at her. This memory led her to pursue a career as a bilingual teacher.

The Bags SurviveAlice began singing professionally at the age of 8. She attended several Eastside schools and by the time she left junior high she had become fascinated with the glitter rock scene. In 1976, she and a friend (Patricia Rainone) decided to form an all-girl punk band, The Bags, one of the first and most popular bands of the early L.A. punk scene. They were notable for having two strong female members. 

Alice Bag Disco"s Dead

Their music was fast, aggressive and onfrontational. Alice Bag didn't so much perform as explode on stage and The Bags quickly gained notoriety. Alice went on to perform in many different groups while she attended college in Los Angeles, earning her Bachelor's degree in Philosophy from Cal State L.A. She began teaching at inner city schools where there was a need for bilingual instructors, work she continues to this day.

Alice Bag, Stay At Home BombFollowing the birth of her daughter in the mid-90's, Alice took a break from writing and performing, during which time she focused almost exclusively on motherhood. Realizing that this role alone was not completely fulfilling spawned her latest project, Stay At Home Bomb, an all female punk rock group that addresses domestic roles, socially enforced images of femininity and the burning desire of women to kick ass in a rock band.
