X's Exene Cervenka is having an estate sale

One can only imagine the caliber of punky treasures lurking around the back of Exene Cervenka's closet. Now you can find out for yourself, because the X singer and L.A. punk/country doyenne is downsizing, and  having an estate sale this Thursday.

"Calling all Betty Crocker Punk Rockers!!!" she writes on the event site. "100 years of Americana needs good home. Treasured memories of the past can live on in your hands! Like a small inheritance, but without the squabbling with siblings!"

CRITICS' PICKS: What to watch, where to go, what to eat

Among the Americana on offer? Original Cervenka artwork, "Depression glass collection," a "super hardtail chopper," "Religious ephemera and art," "Victorian clothing for women and children" and yes,   "RECORDS" and "PUNK ROCK memorabilia."

Even if you didn't spend your teenage years wanting to live inside "The Decline of Western Civilization," this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to actually surround yourself with Exene's s stuff. 

The address for the sale will go live Wednesday morning, and the event lasts for four days. Expect L.A. to be mysteriously bereft of goth-punk homemakers. 


Everything is awesome, indeed, for Mark Mothersbaugh
