SALAD DAYS (7:30)

Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)” is a documentary film that examines the early DIY punk scene in the Nation’s Capital. It was a decade when seminal bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Government Issue, Scream, Void, Faith, Rites of Spring, Marginal Man, Fugazi, and others released their own records and booked their own shows—without major record label constraints or mainstream media scrutiny. Contextually, it was a cultural watershed that predated the alternative music explosion of the 1990s (and the industry’s subsequent implosion). Thirty years later, DC’s original DIY punk spirit serves as a reminder of the hopefulness of youth, the power of community and the strength of conviction.

THE FAMILY JAMS (9:30)

An evocative portrait of youthful possibility, THE FAMILY JAMS follows Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom and Vetiver as they tour the USA in 2004 playing their unique music for a newly growing audience. The film is an intimate portrait of life on the road for these young musicians early in their careers, playing tiny, obscure clubs and art galleries, but on the verge of larger success before their small, intimate vans are replaced by large, impersonal tour busses. The book is a photo diary of the Family Jams Tour featuring exclusive photos and essays by Joanna, Devendra, Andy (from Vetiver) and Kevin Barker (the director). Featuring: Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom, Vetiver, Kevin Barker, Antony & The Johnsons, Espers & Linda Perhacs”

LEGENDS OF SKA!  TUE AUG 4 – 7:30pm

BUY TICKETS HERE!

Busta sings open hand
Synopsis: Legends Of Ska celebrates the music, culture and enthusiasm of Jamaica as a newly independent nation more than 50 years ago. The documentary film chronologically explores the history of original Jamaican ska and the significance of the island’s musical impact. In the spirit of Buena Vista Social Club and 20 Feet From Stardom, this film focuses primarily on the years 1962-1966 by interspersing vintage and contemporary concert footage, rare photographs, newsreels, artifacts, interviews and authentic tourist 8mm home movies. Ska was Jamaica’s first popular musical export, which sprang from the jazz clubs and dance halls of Kingston to spawn a worldwide dance craze. Without Ska, there is no Reggae.

Cast: The film’s story highlights the living pioneers of ska, who were assembled in Toronto during the summer of 2002 for a special weekend of concerts called the “Legends Of Ska.” Thirty foundation singers and musicians were selected to participate in the biggest original ska reunion of all time. Backed by the thirteen piece All-Star Skatalites Orchestra, the performers included internationally famous names like Prince Buster, Alton Ellis, Derrick Morgan and Millicent “Patsy” Todd. Joining the line-up were once forgotten vintage artists such as Stranger Cole, Lord Creator and Rico Rodriguez. NOW Magazine in Toronto named the Legends of Ska “Concert of the Year 2002.”

Takeaway: Filmgoers will come away with an in-depth understanding of the irrepressible, seductive beat of ska and have their hearts lifted high by the extraordinary stories from these unique entertainers. Some viewers will discover a new musical art form, while others might reminisce about a music that first touched their lives long ago. Audiences can experience the human connection by understanding the talents of men and women who struggled in daily island life, while yearning for respect from their British and American peers. Originally overshadowed by Beatlemania and rock n’ roll, ska never received the recognition it rightly deserves as a lasting, influential musical genre. This film will change that perception.

Life On The V: The Story Of V66 is the story of that channel, V66
