February 6. West Coast punk icon Alice Bag was the lead singer of the Bags, the first female-fronted band to play the infamous Los Angeles club the Masque; the group further cemented its legend with a single on the seminal Dangerhouse label and an appearance in the 1981 film The Decline of Western Civilization. For this date at the Flywheel Arts Collective, Bag performs songs, reads from her newly published memoir, Violence Girl, and is joined by writer Donna Lethal, who reads from her own book, Milk of Amnesia. (Whirl, Hellal, and Grey Skull rock February 3; Waxahatchee, Parasol, and more arrive February 7.) 8pm. $8. East Hampton, Massachusetts. (413) 527-9800; Flywheelarts.org.
