Bret from over at Egg City Radio (formerly Post-Punk Junk) is curating an awesome-looking film festival dedicated to the original late '70s/early '80s punk scene. They're mostly on-the-spot documentaries that haven't been seen in ages. Some, like the legendary concert film "Urgh! A Music War," can't be released on DVD due to licensing hassles.
Every Thursday for the next couple of months! If you're in Los Angeles, or are planning on visiting, mark you calendars, kids.
