LOUD! FAST! PHILLY!
A video history of Philly hardcore punk.
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, 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.
Featuring McRad, 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, Partysaurus Wrecks, The Dead Milkmen, Dissystema, Lord Humongous, Brutal Truth, and many others.
Advance tix are $10, no refunds or exchanges.
The Cinedelphia Film Festival is a Philly-centric celebration of Philly film running from April 4-27, 2013.
