Urgh! A Music War

35mm print!

Oct 17

Derek Burbidge, 1981, United States, 96 min

"Filmed in 1980, Urgh! bounces all over the US, the UK and Europe capturing some of the greatest underground bands of the era at the heights of their powers. You're left wondering how some of these acts didn't become household names as you make your way to the record store for further research." -Ben Gibbard


Oct 18

Bob Rafelson, 1968, United States, 86 min

"The Monkees star in this Californian Magical Mystery Tour "written" by Jack Nicholson and Bob Rafelson. Much maligned upon it's release, it stands as a wildly entertaining artifact of its time while out-psych-ing The Fab Four in the process." -Ben Gibbard

Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years

Oct 24

Penelope Spheeris, 1988, United States, 93 min

"If you've ever wondered why grunge/alt-rock wiped hair metal off the face of the planet in 1991, this is the place to start.  Decline pt. 2 is my favorite music documentary of all time and I am always envious of anyone seeing it for the first time.
