Looking For Group Causes ‘A Fat Wreck’ With Punk Doc

fat-wreck-pgh

On August 19th, the gaming center and coworking space Looking for Group will present a live music and movie event for A Fat Wreck: The Punk-umentary.

The feature debut from director Shaun Colon tells the story of Fat Mike (NOFX) and his ex-wife Erin Kelly-Burkett, founders of Fat Wreck Chords, the influential music label that spent the past 25 years “ruining punk rock.” Half inspirational story of chosen family and community, half debauchery and occasionally involuntary drug use, the film contains interviews with subjects such as Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!, Bad Religion bassist Jay Bentley, and Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters, as well as animation sequences and puppet re-enactments.

Doors open at 7 p.m. A performance by the Me First and the Gimme Gimmes cover band The Gimme 5 will take place at 8 p.m. A Fat Wreck: The Punk-umentary will screen at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $12 and are available for purchase at Eventbrite. BYOB. Please note: all ages are welcome, but only guests 21 and older are permitted to consume alcohol.
