Speakeasily Vs. The ‘80s welcomes creator of the interactive Listography books and pioneering former owner of Oakland's Eli’s Mile High Club, Lisa Nola, and her partner James Spooner who directed the 2003 documentary AfroPunk, co-founded the AfroPunk Festival, and works as a cartoonist and tattoo artist in Los Angeles! Together we dive headfirst into the totally tripendicular film Valley Girl (1983). Can the preppy daughter of hippies and a “punk hunk” find love somewhere between Hollywood and the Valley? Only a romantic montage set to Modern English can tell.
