LOUD! FAST! PHILLY! (Featuring DJ Jesse Luscious) Invades San Francisco
LOUD! FAST! PHILLY!
A Video History of Philly Hardcore Punk
The San Francisco, CA presentation
One night only!
Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 7:30 PM at the Emerald Tablet in North Beach, San Francisco.
Advance tickets may be had here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/451866
LOUD! FAST! PHILLY! explores Philadelphia's hardcore punk underground with a clear-eyed view that eschews golden-hued nostalgia and instead brings into sharp focus (and blurry VHS) the true ugly beauty of the scene. Featuring rare footage of local bands playing basements, churches, squats, bars, crappy clubs, and warehouses throughout the city, the program captures what it was like living in a moment but without the pervasive reek of b.o. LOUD! FAST! PHILLY! has selected footage dating from the early 1980s to the now, much of which has never been seen and has been assembled, digitized, and edited for this program. Special guests will be in attendance to introduce clips and talk about Philly's vibrant underground, back then and today.
Nearly forty years on, punk continues to inspire with its DIY ethos and vibrant, creative aggression.
This is not a post-mortem.
This is a celebration.
LOUD! FAST! PHILLY! sold out two screenings at the 2013 Cinedelphia Film Festival in April and was presented in Portland, OR in July. This is L!F!P!'s San Francisco premier. The screening will feature live Philly ex-pat guests as well as Bull (a former member of R.A.M.B.O., Policy of 3, and the Cabbage Collective) talking about their involvement in the scene and beyond. Project creator Joseph A. Gervasi will be on hand to introduce the clips and take your questions.
Featuring footage of: Decontrol, Ruin, Policy of 3, Bleed, R.A.M.B.O., Sickoids, F.O.D., 2.5 Children, Atom and His Package, Franklin, Violent Society, The Ghouls, More Fiends, Big Hate, The Dead Milkmen, Dissystema, Lord Humongous, Brutal Truth, Kill the Man Who Questions, Kremlin Korps, and Y-DI.
Special guest DJ Jesse Luscious (formerly of the bands Blatz, The Gr'ups, and more and the former editor of Philly Zine) will play a set of Philly punk music!
