If you happen to live in Southern California, you MIGHT be in luck because the music documentary about Descendents/All (Filmage: The Story of Descendents/All) is having a free screening on Sunday August 25th. The screening will be at 11AM at the Art Theatre (2025 E. 4th Street, LBC 90814). But you have to register to win a chance to see the screening, so you still might be shit out of luck. After the movie, then fans gets to fight it out on who is the better band even though they sound almost identical.

You can also read our interview with the filmmakers here.

Long before Green Day and Blink-182 inflicted punk-rock’s puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a garage concocting the perfect mix of pop, angst, love, and coffee. FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL follows band leader/drummer/square-peg Bill Stevenson and his “caffeinated retardedness” as he pushes his rotating door of bandmates to “achieve ALL,” his philosophy of going for greatness at all costs. Stevenson is a force to be reckoned with, proving that not even a grapefruit-sized brain tumor can keep him down. Featuring interviews with the band, along with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) and many more reveal the story of a band – if not THE band – responsible for pop-punk as you know it.
