Music Docs to see this weekend

If you live in LA go to Cinefamily for their Punk & No Wave Weekend.

As the description says, “Video artists Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong, in the pre-MTV days from 1977-80, spent their nights documenting New York’s nascent punk and no wave scenes. Armed with portapak cameras, they shot now legendary performances and on-camera interviews at clubs like CBGB, Mudd Club, and Danceteria, featuring the Dead Boys, Iggy Pop, the Heartbreakers, John Cale, the Cramps, Sun Ra, the Go-Go’s, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, James Chance and the Contortions, Richard Hell, and countless others. The NY Times labeled them the “Lewis and Clark of Rock video”.

Amazing footage for those of us that weren’t there to experience the scene.

If you can’t make it out, stay in and watch Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis (Our Friends).  Directed by Colin Hanks.  This music documentary follows the band and examines the November 2015 Paris terrorist attacks from the perspective of the American rock band.

And if you get really desperate for entertainment.  There’s always the Lifetime movie,  Britney Ever After
