ART @ 341 FSN OPENING RECEPTION / ATOMIC CAFÉ REVIVAL
Relive the sights and sounds of legendary punk institution Atomic Cafe. DJ set by Atomic Nancy—original 45’s from the jukebox!
In 1946, Minoru and Ito Matoba opened the Atomic Café in Little Tokyo. For decades this late night cafe catered to neighborhood locals, punks, tramps, junkies, mobsters, city politicians and world class artists. Nancy’s carefully curated jukebox perfectly suited its clientele and provided the soundtrack for this unique cultural mashup.
