Want to know what L.A.’s punk rock scene was like in the late ’70s/early ’80s? This legendary doc puts you in the middle of the mosh pit! Includes performances and interviews with X, Fear, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Germs and more. Daryl Gates tried to have this movie banned in ’81. The Library of Congress preserved it in 2016. We’re proud to show it to celebrate Record Store Day!
Plus – Tony Cadaver, organizer of the Phoenixville Punk Rock Flea Market, will blast a scorching set of early `80s punk rock in our new lobby before the show!
