Good evening folks, if anybody out there is a big fan of zines, and I know some of your are, please consider snagging a copy of the latest issue of Porchcore and check out my thank you note to the city of San Pedro nestled in the back. 
The rest of the zine features contributions from folks like Baby J (Can Of Beans, Stoned At Heart), Sean Cole (Toys That Kill, That’s Incredible), Allie Hanlon (Peach Kelli Pop, White Wires), Paloma Bañuelos (Bombón, Bee’s Knees), and a whole ton of other awesome people.  While a lot of the zine has to do with San Pedro and it’s little punk community, the whole thing is filled with tons of rad stories, pictures, comics, life advice, and recipes that I think everyone can get down with.  They’re only a dollar and can be found over at Porchcore’s official site or from a Porchcore representative at any local Pedro show.
If you end up snagging a copy I hope you dig it, it’s my first forray into the zine world, which I think, finally, makes me a bonafide punk rocker.
P.S:  Mad props to Baby J for putting the whole zine together and dreaming up Porchcore in the first place.  She is hella inspiring as per usual.

A little bit ago, I had the privilege of being at the record release show of the newest incarnation of a long running San Pedro act, Can Of Beans.  Centered around local Pedro musician, Baby J, who is also known for her solo endeavors as well as contributions to Stoned At Heart, which also features Todd Congelliere, Jimmy Felix, and Chachi Ferrara of Toys That Kill, Can Of Beans is J’s more collaborative punk and roll project.  Currently the band is a trio which features Baby J on guitar, Anthony “Antman” Gamez on bass, and Chachi on drums.

Their self titled debut marks the first release for the band in it’s current form (previously the band released a 7” of somewhat improvised home recordings, when COB was just Baby J and her friend Laila) as well as the first record on Baby J’s, Porchcore, label.  Those already familiar with Baby J’s other acts might have a good idea of what’s on this record; awesome personal, deep songs about Baby J and her life, delivered with passion and sincerity, and worded in a very unique way that is distinctly J’s.  Probably the main difference between this record and other one’s Baby J’s been involved with is that Can Of Beans is just slightly more aggressive that anything else she’s done.  All in all, as the tune “On The Five” might exemplify, the Can Of Beans self-titled debut is a solid record for the group and also a great starting release for what I hope will be another prolific San Pedro label.

More information on Can Of Beans can be found at the band’s Facebook.  Copies of their self-titled debut can be picked up via Porchore.
