Seasonal Special Happenings

Double Feature

When: Mon., April 20 2015

In a one night only, double feature, the Grog Shop will be screening two rock 'n roll documentaries. Rye Coalition – The Story of the Hard Luck 5 will screen first at 7:30 and a short Q&A with the director will follow. The documentary is about New Jersey band Rye Coalition and their journey through the music industry. From their roots and being one of the first bands to develop the “emo” sound, to their signing with Dreamworks Records and working with Dave Grohl to the bands sudden implosion. With home videos from the band, director Jenni Matz has been chronicling the band for years. The second film Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington D.C. (1980-90) examines the DIY punk scene. It was a time when bands like Minor Threat, Bad Brains and more booked their own shows and released their own records without major record label constraints.
