Khaela Maricich’s creative work as “The Blow” somehow exists in the fringe balsam glade of performance art that pivots and pirouettes between the intersection of “spoken word”, “indie rock” and “dance music”. As she notes in “The Woman You Want Her To Be”
Around back is the VIP entrance
it’s invite only and many resent this
they swear
their name must be on the list
They wanna get in get in get in get in…

Ruby Ray photographed confrontational artists like Devo, William S Burroughs, Crime, Nico, The Avengers and Z’ev at the nexus of punk & industrial subcultures for Search & Destroy magazine in late 70’s and early 80’s San Francisco. Her photos are a vivid documentation of decades past that still seem as vital and necessary today
