Rage: 20 years of Punk Rock

West Coast Punk music parallels the birth of blues and jazz as an avant-garde art movement. The film, directed by Scott Jacoby and Michael Bishop, features artists pursuing the American Dream on their own terms – including Jello Biafra, the Dead Kennedys, the Circle Jerks, Christian Death, US Bombs, and more. Their spirit is personified in their lifestyle and individualism. You’ll be surprised at how creative, sincere and thoughtful these artists are in their ongoing pursuit of music and art outside of the commercial arena.

You See Me Laughin’

Thur 7/31: 7:30pm
A personal journey into the lives and music of the last of the Mississippi hill country bluesmen – farmers and laborers first, musicians second – men who, year after year, congregated on back porches and in tiny juke joints to drink and sing and play guitar. YOU SEE ME LAUGHIN’ takes us on the road and into the homes of R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, T-Model Ford, Cedell Davis, Johnny Farmer and Asie Payton – musicians who’ve labored for the blues tradition despite lives steeped in poverty and violence. Most have lived among the same farms, small bars and competitive rivalries their entire lives. The result is a raw, powerful music that is fused with the cultural landscape of its musicians.
