Nitehawk and Noisey present a special one night screening of FILMAGE: THE STORY OF DESCENDENTS/ALL with post screening Q&A with co-director Matt Riggle.
Long before punk rock inflicted its puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a garage brewing a concoction of pop, angst, love and coffee. FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL follows drummer and square-peg Bill Stevenson as he pushes himself and a rotating door of bandmates to achieve ALL, his relentless philosophy of “going for the utmost possible greatness” despite any and all setbacks.
Interviews with the band and contemporaries such as Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Mark Hoppus (Blink-182), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) reveal the untold tale of one of the most overachieving and influential bands in history.
