Wild Times

"I thought it would be a good picture of the way a lot of people think artists look." — John Schroeder in "Young Turks"

“I thought it would be a good picture of the way a lot of people think artists look.” — John Schroeder in “Young Turks”

The 1970s and early ’80s were a crazy time downtown. There were a lot of artists getting huge studios for next to nothing; punk rock was unleashed at Al’s Bar, Jacaranda’s Place and other unlikely venues around Little Tokyo, Broadway and the Market District; and art was where you found it — whether that meant Jon Peterson’s shelters in desolate corners of Skid Row or The Great and Glorious Rev. Rick, performance artist Richard Newton’s sidewalk preacher. “Young Turks,” a documentary shot during that time, brings those wild days back to life.

“Young Turks” is continuing its theatrical release at the Downtown Independent with another showing today (Wed., Feb. 27) at 3 p.m.

Thursday, the showtime is 3 p.m. Tickets
