Guerilla documentary Invisible Bands tells the story of the all-but-forgotten punk/new wave music scene that took place in South Florida during those tumultuous times. It wasnâ€™t pretty. Using one camera, found footage and exclusive interviews with those still around, filmmaker Greg McLaughlin has created a historical document of not only the music but the time period itself â€“ a time capsule of a â€œlost sceneâ€ and the characters who created it.
Includes rare, never-before-seen footage of such almost-was heroes as Critical Mass, The Eat, Charlie Pickett, The Cichlids, The Reactions, The Front, Screaminâ€™ Sneakers and dozens more!
TWO screenings – Friday & Saturday night!
Immediately following the film both nights there will be a question and answer session featuring the director Greg McLaughlin along with Charlie Pickett (Charlie Pickett & The Eggs), Isaac Baruch (The Reactions, US Furies) & Rat Bastard (Myron & the 2Wotz, Dengon)
