Actor Tim Robbins, visual artist Shepard Fairey and skateboard legend Tony Hawk are a few of the contributors to “More Fun in the New World: The Unmaking and Legacy of L.A. Punk,” the new book about punk-rock co-written by John Doe of the band X.

Unless you already have a ticket, you won’t be able to attend either of this weekend’s sold-out shows here at the Belly Up by the pioneering Los Angeles punk-rock band X. But you can walk right into Lou’s Records on Saturday in Encinitas, where X co-founder John Doe will team with and Tom DeSavia to discuss and their new book, “More Fun in the New World: The Unmaking and Legacy of L.A. Punk.”

It includes interviews with numerous early punk veterans, as well as chapters written by actor Tim Robbins, visual artist Shepard Fairey and San Diego-bred skateboard legend Tony Hawk.

Doe and DeSavia will be joined at Lou’s by veteran North County musician Chip Kinman, best known as one of the driving forces behind the bands The Dils and Rank and File.

The event will also include a Q&A and a book signing. Copies of “More Fun in the New World: The Unmaking and Legacy of L.A. Punk” will be available for purchase at Lou’s.
