The GOODS from The Biltmore Cabaret
Vancouver, BC | The wait is finally over! The exclusive Vancouver screening of FILMAGE: The Story of Descendents/ALL goes down at the Biltmore Cabaret on Wednesday, January 15th. It follows band leader/drummer/square-peg Bill Stevenson and his “caffeinated retardedness” as he pushes his rotating door of bandmates to “achieve ALL,” his philosophy of going for greatness at all costs. Stevenson is a force to be reckoned with, proving that not even a grapefruit-sized brain tumor can keep him down. Interviews with the band, along with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) and many more reveal the story of a band – if not THE band – responsible for pop-punk as you know it. Long before Green Day and Blink 182 inflicted punk-rock’s puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a garage concocting the perfect mix of pop, angst, love, and coffee. Vancouver’s B-LINES and RAD DISASTER will play following the screening, with DJ sets by Russian Tim, of ‘Rocket from Russia’ on CiTR 101.9FM. Details and trailer after the jump…
When: Wednesday January 15th – doors at 8pm
Tickets: $10+s/c advance tickets at Red Cat, Scrape Records & the Biltmore Cabaret
