21ST CENTURY PUNK ROCK VOLUME #1
A film about the modern day underground punk scene
LOS ANGELES, CA, June 9th, 2009 - The first independent film to represent the "descendents of the first wave of Los Angeles punk" as Jade Blackmore, a reviewer for "The Slums Off Hollywood Boulevard", puts it. This film is a documentary about punk rock after 2005 filmed in and around Southern California and Nevada. It contains many live performances and interviews ranging from up and coming bands to punk rock legends of today.
The film explains how modern punk rock is today with exclusive interviews of people heavily involved with punk rock including Big Rob (Fatal Riot Manager/Big Rob's Flyers), Ron Martinez (Crawlspace Booking), promoters, bands, and the people who live the punk rock lifestyle. The live performances by the bands depict how the shows are like today. The random shots of activities in and around the punk gatherings show how the punk rock lifestyle is like today. The interviews with the bands and people at the concerts explain how the scene has evolved, the fashions have changed, and the future of punk rock.
The live performances and interviews occur in various places around Southern California and Las Vegas, Nevada, but the bands are not limited to the West Coast. The film presents The Krum Bums and The Lower Class Brats from Texas. The Voids, All Out Attak, Defied, and Homesick Abortions from Los Angeles, California. Terezodu, 46 Short, Shattered Faith, and Dick Politic from Orange County, California. Resilience from Santa Rosa, California. The Career Soldiers and Sayaka from San Diego, California. The Casualties from New York. Disaster Us from New Jersey. The interviews also cover even more ground with Robert Price from the Ghouls in Pennsylvania, as well as interviews of the bands in the live performances from around the states.
The main focus of the film is not about the past, but about the present and future of the punk rock genre. This is the first film to present how punk rock is like after the turn of the century and many more are expected to come as the years go on.
