At just 15, Mexican singer-songwriter Ceci Bastida got her start in music by joining the endlessly rebellious ska-punk band Tijuana No! She toured with the group for over a decade before launching a solo career and eventually moving to Los Angeles, where she wrote songs that straddled the political and the personal.

These are all bands that I listen to and care about. For one reason or another, they are important in music history. I'm not an event photographer. I document bands that I love. That is the reason I go to the shows and do what I do. I’ve been lucky that people have seen my pictures and they’ve been featured in a few places. For me, I could do this forever even if I keep all the pictures under my bed. For me it’s a memento of my favorite shows.
