THE FILMS

Los Punks: We Are All We Have (Angela Boatwright | USA | 79 min.)
Punk rock is thriving in the backyards of South Central and East Los Angeles. A cobbled together family of predominantly Latino teens and young adults comprise the scene:bands, fans, production, marketing, and security interwoven into a subculture of thrash and noise and pits. The sense of belonging is palpable, emotional bonds fostered among good families and those broken, poverty and wealth, adolescence and maturity, with the music emanating a magnetic chorus for all to sing together.Los Punks:We Are All We Have is a documentary feature film honestly and sincerely portraying this vibrant, “DIY” community.

Presented in partnership with: House of Vans

MUSIC

Age of Fear
Banda pauloafonsina (Paulo Afonso - BA) de Heavy Metal, formada em 2006.

South Central Riot Squad
S.C.R.S.(South Central Riot Squad) is a loud, young, and sleezy punk rock band coming straight out of the gutter of South Central, Los Angeles, California. Filled with pure raw energy that shows in their performance. All about the rock n' roll lifestyle; sex, drugs, and punk fucking rock!

Formed in 2002 by frontman, Efrain, and earlier bassist, Alex. As time went on, members had feuds, started to decay and left. A couple hundred shows later and a couple thousand beers later, S.C.R.S. was known to be one of the top bands to bring the South Central punk scene up to its feet and shouting their lungs out singing "Hanging out at the gig, drinking my 40oz. 40oz!" The year is 2009, and with a few DIY releases and few comps out, S.C.R.S. is at there beginning of their journey with their latest album "In This City..." With many influences from all round. From Clit 45 to Motorhead, from Broken Bones to Iron Maiden. With the Squad back up on its feet, they will soon be back up on stage where they belong tearing shit up.

"Keep it Loud & Put it Down, South Central Punk & Proud"

The Casualties
The Casualties are an American street punk band that was formed in New York City in 1990.
