No Age for a healthy river*

LA River

November 17, 2007

Saturday: didn't check my email or phone. Regretted the lapse as therein lay advance notice of a No Age performance and guerrilla beautification happening down by the river, at 3 p.m. The good news is video footage of the event, which was busted by park rangers -- so much for wholesome, supportive use of public space. Also, good blog coverage if you like words and still pictures.

Jay Babcock emailed an afterword:

Community gathering action at the los angeles river in celebration of public space and nature among the urban sprawl. Performance by No Age. Seeded by arthur magazine. Busted by Park Rangers Documented by color national.

Babcock would like to see the concrete removed from the L.A. River, as would many Friends of the L.A. River and Northeast Trees. As would I.
