VF025: Al Larsen

Back in the late 80s and into the 90s, Al Larsen was the frontman for Some Velvet Sidewalk, a punk band from the Pacific Northwest. I was checking them out on YouTube and saw a great comment: “Their frontman was my college professor. When he showed this to the class, it blew our minds.” In addition to teaching at Champlain College, he is also multimedia artist and writer whose work utilizes public spaces such as festivals, sidewalks, rooftops, and keggers.
