Martin Wong’s ongoing Save Music in Chinatown concerts invoke the power of punk rock to raise funds for music programs at Castelar Elementary School. The 14th edition of the series is stacked with a legendary lineup of punk all-stars that includes the hard-driving post-punk explorations of Mike Watt & the Missingmen, which pairs the muscular bass riffs of its bandleader with the spectral guitar shimmers of Tom Watson (Red Crayola, Slovenly). Meanwhile, two of the L.A. punk scene’s earliest and most provocative singers — Alice Bag and Phranc — combine forces in a new project, Phag, blending their voices on such topical and subversively folkie anthems as “The Alt-Right Is All Wrong.” In addition to the dance-tastic funkiness of K Records mastermind Calvin Johnson’s Selector Dub Narcotic, the gently engaging Lois Maffeo — Johnson’s onetime collaborator — strums a rare solo set.
