This is Sydni Shoaf from her ’87-’88 school year. We met in Ridgecrest, CA. She had come up to Oak Harbor to see me once. We went to Love and Rockets, protested meat at a local grocery story and almost got arrested, etc. We did not speak again after that trip. She went more normie, became a DJ in San Diego and unfortunately passed away at 26.

Back in the ’80s it was pretty common for goth and punk kids to seek each other out through personal ads. Most of mine were from Maximum Rock ‘n Roll or Farside. This was one of mine. I think she was from Ohio (or possibly Pennsylvania.)
