CIMMFest 2011: No Fun City
Directed by Melissa James and Kate Kroll
Rabid gentrification and downtown development are killing the live music scene in Vancouver, giving it the unofficial nickname "No Fun City." Melissa James and Kate Kroll's depressing yet exciting documentary tracks the efforts by bands, club owners, and fans to adapt to or subvert the city's efforts to shut them down. Skinny Puppy and D.O.A. join longtime club owners and upstart underground concert promoters (sometimes literally underground) in discussing a problem that exists in cities worldwide.
With: "X Magazine Benefit" (1978 No Wave benefit concert, directed by Coleen Fitzgibbon and Alan Moore, 11 min.)
Heaven Gallery, 1550 North Milwaukee, Friday, April 15 at 9pm
