Jim Smith, the Founder of The Smell, shares the story behind the iconic DIY venue and how it became a community for LA's punk scene. Since 1998, the all-ages, no alcohol club developed local bands like No Age and others in the punk/experimental genre. The venue recently received a notice that their building is being demolished, and now it's fundraising to keep its space alive. Punk rock has always been a platform for youth to speak out against politics, social issues and injustice - The Smell is needed now more than ever!
