Cleveland's own Alternative Press opened up shop 25 years ago as a four-page fold-over punk rock fanzine. Since then, it has expanded with a significant upgrade in production value, international distribution and a number of other branding techniques.

So, the people from AP took a short leave of absence from the Cleveland home base to head to Los Angeles for its 25th Anniversary Show. The party features art by rock starts, with pieces like a $30,000 Marilyn Manson watercolor on display. The show also features rock-related art, from album covers to some of AP's best photographs of musicians, and a retrospective on the last 25 years.
