Watch: New Netflix Doc Captures The Awesome Latino Punk Scene in Los Angeles

Any place can be a music venue.

A little over a week ago, on a Saturday, a punk show took place across the street from my apartment in the Los Angeles Latino stronghold of Boyle Heights. The venue was a strip mall that used to house a Domino’s Pizza and a laundromat, but burned down in an electrical fire back in January (which just so happen to precede the closure of the Sixth Street Bridge, which fed into the little business area, by a couple of weeks).

A couple of hours into the makeshift show, the cops showed up and did what they do best: they shut down the fun and sent everyone home.

That this show took place was news to me, a non-Los Angeles native that only recently moved to Boyle Heights. But as soon I soon found out, DIY punk shows in East and South Central Los Angeles have been taking place since the late ’70s. Now, thanks to shoemaker Vans, this scene has gotten the recognition it deserves in the form of a documentary. “Los Punks: We Are All We Have” highlights the importance that these punk shows held in unconventional places like garages, backyards, and burned down buildings have for those that attend them.

It’s a really wonderful film that you should see largely because it challenges the conventional view of what Latino kids are supposed to be into, and it showcases how more often than not these chaotic shows tend to be lifesaving. The doc is currently streaming on Netflix. Go watch it now, and then go break some s**t.

Meet The Mexican Who Thinks He’s A Mini Version Of Trump And Wants To Run For Governor

This Mexican Trump Supporter Has No Idea What Latino Culture Is

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” caught up with Marco Gutierrez, also known as the “taco trucks on every corner” guy. Amazingly, the dude legit believes every single asinine thing he’s said about Latino culture. Furthermore, it shows that the Mexican immigrant turned Trump supporter just doesn’t get true Latino culture. How? Well, first off, he told the reporter that the Latino community is “a primitive and underdeveloped culture.” Gutierrez further argued that people should be afraid. Why? “We’ll take whatever we can take if you’ll let us,” Gutierrez said while laughing. Clearly, the only reasonable explanation for Gutierrrez’s self-hatred is a rare condition that affects a very small minority of U.S. Latinos: Trumpitis.

Some symptoms of Trumpitis include a limited vocabulary.

Because saying, “I support Donald Trump” is too tedious. We all know that money is time that can be spent at a prestigious university.

Paranoia of being double-crossed by the Trumpster since he is one of the greatest scammers.

As Trumpitis progresses, some people report losing all sense of one’s own culture and thinking that legal bullying is a sign of respect.

According to the interview, Gutierrez was once a mortgage broker but ran a less than reputable operation. At one point, Gutierrez was using lawsuits to intimidate people who were suing him for his work. He eventually was deemed a vexatious litigant, meaning he filed so many frivolous lawsuits, the state of California now has to approve them before they can be filed. Wait, he really is a minute Donald Trump.

In extreme cases of Trumpitis, patients tend to lose all sense of reality.
