Plastic Culture

Plastic Culture

Plastic Culture is a dynamic duo based out of Orange County, California. Formed in 2012, founding member and lead vocalist Kaitlin Allen, and lead guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Eddie Garcia have made it their mission to bring back the heart and soul of rock n’ roll with their unique method of blending rock, psychedelic, reggae, and funk. Plastic Culture will surely reach a wide variety of audiences.

In early 2017, Plastic Culture worked on a special demo with a start up label in Los Angeles, California. Fast forward to 2019, Plastic Culture has professionally re-recorded their self tilted EP that was engineered by multi-platinum record producer Frank Gryner.

Plastic Culture now has an international distribution and marketing deal with The AMG Corp and Sony Music.

Rick Graves - Photographer

Rick Graves, Photographer

Rick is recognized industry-wide as an authority in capturing the essence of high-energy action imagery, having earned a coveted client list including Samsung, Porsche, Jaguar, Cadillac, Honda, Acura, Toyota, Mazda, Subaru and Goodyear. As a natural progression, Rick effectively turned his passion for action photography to film and video. He wrote, shot, and directed a promotional short for Triumph Motorcycles N.A. that has generated over 12 million YouTube views. In his quest to invent new ways to capture images of speed, Rick developed a finish line camera system giving him the ability to capture images in motion so extraordinary that Auto Week and Wired Magazine featured his work. A graduate of the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Rick’s long format images are on exhibit at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, California .

Again, in case you haven’t heard, LBCAC has joined forces with the good folks at, an international live-streaming company owned by members of The Rolling Stones, Springsteen’s Band, Ringo’s Band as well as Stevie Nicks’ Bands. They’ve installed a high-end multi-camera streaming system at our Forest Avenue location to broadcast the highest quality.

In order to bring you these shows and to “harness the power of the Arts to benefit the community,” we depend on your generous donations. Please consider giving any small amount today.
