It WAS fast, it was furious and it was over in a blink. But photographer Edward Colver's shutter blinked a fraction faster. If not for his poking in and out of hot, dank punk clubs across the Southland, a whole big chunk of L.A.'s early hardcore scene of the '70s and early '80s would have hurtled -- visually -- out of memory. If you were there, you remember him. He was everywhere -- Hong Kong Cafe, the Cuckoo's Nest, Perkins Palace -- impossible to miss: The tall guy smack in the middle of the churning mosh pit, towering over the melee ("When they push it, I tell 'em I'm 5-17."

The '80s were a turbulent time in the City of Angels. Gentrification and revitalization of downtown and Hollywood Boulevard were still years away, the punk subculture had yet to be co-opted by suburban shopping malls and relations between law enforcement and the region's racial minorities exploded from time to time. Evocative and provocative images of such themes are at the heart of "Faraway So Close: Photographs of Los Angeles in the '80s," a group show running through Saturday at the Morono Kiang Gallery in the Bradbury Building downtown.

It takes a bit of work to find photographer Edward Colver. He does not advertise or solicit work, doesn't list his telephone number. Standing outside the locked building where he lives in downtown Los Angeles, there is no way to buzz his loft to request entry. He can't be reached by e-mail, as he has no computer. "I have this hatred of things with screens," he says.

Night life will hit full bloom When Sky Reiss found out Club 66 was up for grabs, he swooped down on the Sunset Boulevard venue, and we can now anticipate the arrival of Magnolia, a bar and restaurant he's modeling after the Hollywood rock 'n' roll restaurant Jones.

Next July marks 75 years since smooth-talking Harry H. Culver plunked down $2,000 for 93 acres of barley fields between Los Angeles and the seashore and started a city. Culver, a real estate developer, saw the area where the old train tracks crossed Washington Boulevard as "the neck of the bottle where everything had to come through," according to a local history.

Think "underground scene" and images of club kids using glow-sticks to ward off the uncool come to mind. Six Degrees, a two-night "underground" arts and music festival, intends to change that. The event, taking place this weekend in downtown L.A.'s artist loft district, combines the forces of the Lab 101, Create:Fixate, Transport Gallery and Cannibal Flower -- all galleries that regularly mix art exhibitions with live music. This is the first time they've come together for one show.

A few characteristics immediately stand out about the Culvers: There's a lot of them, and on the whole they're pretty patient. Those family features became evident Saturday as about 100 Culvers waited quietly for more than an hour to find enough working buses to cart them away on their tour of Culver City, the town founded by Harry H. Culver 75 years ago and the reason 180 Culver/Colver cousins converged on the city this weekend for the third national family reunion.

Today, you can't escape punk rock ? the style, iconography and chord changes are as accessible as Hot Topic and top-40 radio. But punk continues to draw its power from the scene of the late 1970s and early '80s, particularly here in Southern California, and to build on its legacy as a savage underground protest music and an art movement that refused to be defined by money. On Friday, art gallery Subliminal Projects opens a new show of photography, art and ephemera called "Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die," which throws open the chaotic energy of an early punk scene that included such bands as Black Flag, the Minutemen, Redd Kross, Bad Religion, the Germs and others.
