There are two groups called The Bags, one from Los Angeles and one from Boston. 1. The Bags were one of the first generation of punk rock bands to emerge out of Los Angeles. The band was formed by Alice Armendariz and Patricia Rainone, who had met at an audition for Venus and the Razorblades, Kim Fowley's next attempt at creating a band after The Runaways had left him. Alice and Pat decided to form their own band and from this The Bags were born.
