“In the Punk Rock & Paintbrushes world, to me, it’s kind of like every day is Christmas,” Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals says. “It was especially feeling like Christmas this year because we put out a book with 29 wonderful artists sharing their stories and that was like 29 Christmas presents. As far as I know, there’s nothing like this event and I’m very proud to be involved with it.”

Emily T. Nielsen, founder of Punk Rock & Paintbrushes says, “Coming back after two years, we are excited to host our highly anticipated holiday show and are more than ready to bring beautiful art to our community and to be benefiting amazing non-profits such as Rock To Recovery and The Alexandria House with the help of TUK Shoes.

“This year we were so grateful to publish our coffee table book and bring our story inside your homes… we hope that this holiday season we can share our stories even more in person on December 11 in LA.”
