UCLA Game Lab creates a new way to get into gaming culture starting Thursday with a workshop that could lead your punk game being in the opening exhibition on Saturday. Hope to hear about some crazy punk hair styles and perhaps a game based on them.

From the UCLA game lab site:
Punk Arcade is a videogame art exhibition and workshop inspired by rapid prototyping and DIY culture. Punk Arcade is curated by Sarah Brin and Lee Tusman.
