Chicano RockNeed an antidote for the summertime blues? Try the Don’t Knock the Rock festival in Los Angeles, a high-energy mix of film and music that runs every Thursday in July and August at the Silent Move Theater in Hollywood. The festival celebrates the rock ’n’ roll roots of Hollywood with classic and brand-new rock films containing quintessential music performances and live shows by fresh musical talents. Coming up this Thursday, July 2, at 8 pm is the Council-supported film “Chicano Rock,” the lively story of how young Mexican Americans in East Los Angeles created a new musical form — a blend of white rock, black soul and Latin rhythms.
