    Good Vibrations

     

     
    Saw a screening not out in the US as of now.

     
    Terri Hooley is a radical, rebel and music-lover in 1970s Belfast, when the bloody conflict known as the Troubles shuts down his city. As all his friends take sides and take up arms, Terri opens a record shop on the most bombed half-mile in Europe and calls it Good Vibrations. Through it he discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city’s nascent underground punk scene. Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an Alternative Ulster, to bring his city back to life.

    Really enjoyed this and loved that the film reveals the title in the last 5 seconds of the film worth seeing!

    Rock and Roll Do Over

    My band of yore The Three O’Clock got back together to play Coachella. We spent 3 months of rehearsals for this amazing do over.
    What I mean is most bands reform and do the things they did before.
    Started with The Glass House in Pomona a splendid starting point.
    Long time band photographer Chris Haston captured this action shot.
