Punk shows high and low, crusty experimental cinemas, freight train adventures, Mission School graffiti, impossibly obscure house shows, and art exhibits in the shadowy margins. It’s a mash up of subcultural documentation, from San Francisco to Shreveport, from Texas to Braddock Pennsylvania, a flash-lit scrapbook of an invisible vanguard, all shot on Tri-X film. Including: Butthole Surfers, Big Boys, Black Flag, City Museum, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, Minutemen, Misfits, David Yow and more.
