Giant Ants

Ant sculptures march up the side of what used to be an iconic spot in punk rock lore. 

Enormous ant sculptures crawl up the facade of the building where Zipperhead was once located.  Zipperhead was a punk clothing and accessory shop, immortalized by the Dead Milkmen in their song “Punk Rock Girl”: One Saturday I took a walk to Zipperhead / I met a girl there, and she almost knocked me dead.
