East Bay punk has had it's day and this film does a good job of capturing it's tragic, but hilarious, past. The video montages and interviews are excellent. The film does an excellent job of showing the hatred for punk and the lack of respect that people had for punk in the 60's and 70's. The film also shows the punk scene from an outsider's point of view. The only real criticism I have is the ending. It could have been better. The ending is really dumb, and it leaves the audience with a bad taste in their mouth. This film should be required viewing for any punk or indie music fan.

I recently saw this documentary and was amazed by it. The first part of the movie shows the punk scene in San Francisco in the early 80s. The second part of the movie shows the band East Bay Punk. The band is a group of friends who are mainly in the punk scene. The documentary is pretty funny and informative. The band is definitely a band to look out for. I recommend this documentary.

This documentary explores the life of the band East Bay Punk. The filmmakers interviewed several members of the band, including the lead singer and guitarist. They also interviewed former members and a few of the band's other members. While the band was primarily made up of the singer, guitarist and bass player, the band members also performed on stage and even wrote songs. One of the other members of the band, Brian Jones, said that the band was very much like a family. The documentary also discusses the influences of the band on other bands that have been made up of the same people. As a music fan and music journalist, I was very impressed with the way the filmmakers covered the band and the music. I am very curious to see what the filmmakers come up with next.

This is a great documentary. The music, the stories, the interviews. These are all compelling. There are some that are a bit hard to understand. The name of the band is East Bay Punk, which is a bit confusing, but is only a small part of what it is. There is a lot of information about the band's history, its music, and their performances. It is a good look at a band that has so many fans, and such a long time of history. This is a must see for any punk fans. This is a great documentary, and a must see.

I have never seen a documentary on East Bay Punk before but was happy to learn about the band. I'm very surprised at how well this movie has been received by the fans. I think this is because this was an original movie, with many different angles to the story. It was well shot, and most of the interviews were very interesting and interesting to watch. I'm also surprised at the amount of hate and hate-inspiring comments that people have given this documentary. People are using the band as a scapegoat for all of their problems, and all of their negative comments are just a reaction to this documentary. I don't think it's a bad thing to have negative reactions to something, it's how the world works. I think the documentary did a good job in showing that this band was not a perfect band. It wasn't all bad, they still were working hard, they still had a lot of hope and they still had many positive things in their lives. I think that the reason they were still standing up was because of the positive things in their lives. The way they live is not always a bad thing, it can even be a way to bring people together, it can be a way to get people to see the world differently. This band was a very positive force in their lives. I think that if this documentary was only about the music and the band, I think it would be a great movie, but the real message of this documentary is the people's lives. I think that was the real message of this documentary. I think that the film was great, I think it was very well done. I'm very happy to see the band doing so well and that it had so much success. I hope that this documentary was successful, because I think it's a great story, a good documentary, and I think it's a great way to start a new wave of East Bay Punk documentary.

The film focuses on the punk scene of Oakland in the late 80s and early 90s, and shows how some of the people involved in that scene are still active today. They talk about their motivations, their reasons for being involved, their frustrations with the media, and their hopes for the future. I particularly enjoyed the interview with Kip Winger, who was in the group Definite Hate. He spoke eloquently about why he decided to go into music, what motivated him, and what he learned from the music industry. The film also gives a lot of information about the bands involved, and their specific personalities. Most of the people interviewed are still active, so it's good to see how their lives have evolved and how they've changed as a result of their experiences. The film also provides a lot of insight into the bands themselves. It's interesting to see how some of them are still involved in punk music, while others have drifted away from the scene. I liked the interview with the drummer of the band Breakneck, who was interviewed before his death. The interviewer asked him about his personal life and how it has changed since his time in the punk scene, and he described the band as "very much like a second family" to him. I also enjoyed the interviews with some of the other bands who were in the scene at the time. I liked how the filmmakers interviewed the band Sweet and the Spiders, who were both involved with the punk scene, and I liked how they talked about their frustrations with the media. The filmmakers also interviewed a lot of the other punk bands who were involved at the time. The interviews with Black Flag, the Dead Kennedys, and the Ramones are all good. The interviews with Fugazi and the Clash are also interesting. The documentary also provides information on other bands who were active at the time. The Clash, Slade, and the Go-Go's all talked about how they used to play in clubs and record their own music, and they talked about how they got into punk because of this. This documentary also shows how the scene was affected by the tragic events of the late 80s and early 90s. The film is extremely informative, and I think that a lot of the information is worth learning. It's also interesting to see the punk scene today, and to see how the punk scene has evolved over the years. I thought that the film was great, and I recommend it to anyone who has a love for punk music. I also thought that the documentary was very entertaining and well worth watching.

A little history lesson. The East Bay Punk scene is a tale of the people who were forced to leave the scene and live in the shadows. This documentary follows the people who make it work, the scenes they create, the sacrifices they make, and the pain that it causes them. It also exposes the darkness of the scene and the people who love it. It is important for the people to know that the people they are hearing about in this documentary are real and that they are not just the scenes of the people they are hearing about. This documentary is a must see for everyone who loves punk rock. The people in the film are almost all real and the documentary does a good job of showing us the people who are behind the scenes. The film is well worth your time and is a must see for anyone who loves punk rock.

I came across this documentary while looking for an interesting documentary to watch. What I found instead was a very entertaining documentary that I was very curious about. The footage is from a series of shows by the band East Bay Punk, which is a San Francisco based punk band. They started out as a tribute band to the great punk bands of the 50's and 60's, but soon switched to a more mainstream rock music. The film talks about how the band started, their songs, their history, and how they ended up breaking up. Some of the band members have made some interesting comments about the band and their music. I thought the documentary did a great job of explaining how these bands came together, and the people involved in them. They were great fun to watch and follow. Definitely check this one out!

I was watching a documentary, and I kept thinking about this band. It was hard to tell who the real people were, because the band members seemed like a bunch of guys in a band playing covers and nothing else. But I was also thinking about this movie. I'm not sure if the movie was really about the band, or if the band was just playing on the side. It really made me think about the bands I was in, and who their friends were. But then I realized that the band members were playing music to make the movie. I think the movie is great. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves punk rock and is interested in seeing the bands in the movie.

This is the best documentary about East Bay punk ever made. The documentary follows the lives of four people in East Bay punk. It shows the stories of their journeys through punk music, their relationships with friends and family, and their creative activities. The film is a wonderful mix of music, narration, interviews, and some great music videos. It's a must see for anyone who is interested in East Bay punk or music. I highly recommend it.

I'm not a huge fan of East Bay punk, but I was pleasantly surprised to see this documentary. The band was actually a lot more than what I expected. It was full of great information and great interviews. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about punk music. It's not just a bunch of people who are in it for the money. I really liked the information they gave about the band, the music, the politics of the time, and the history of the East Bay punk scene. It was a great documentary. I would recommend it to anyone.

I saw the documentary this morning on Comedy Central. I was really impressed. It was very insightful and I was really impressed that they made it look so real. I think that there are a lot of people out there who are like myself that think that it's really difficult to find punk rock. I think this documentary really shows what it's like to actually find a punk rock band and really get into them. I was really impressed with the way they made it look so real. I think it's a really good documentary.

I've been a fan of East Bay Punk since I first saw them at the Winterland in San Jose. They were definitely one of the better punk bands in the Bay Area. I was fascinated by their music and their performance style. I saw the documentary and it turned out to be a lot better than I thought. I was very impressed with their story and their music. I thought it was an excellent documentary. I loved their music and I think their music is probably the best punk/hardcore band ever. I would recommend this documentary to anyone. It is a great story about the people and the music of the band. I think it's very important to show the people what it was like to be a punk or hardcore fan. This documentary really brought out my love for the band. It's a great documentary and I'm glad I saw it. I've watched it twice now and I plan to see it more. I think it's a great documentary. I have to say I didn't like the ending of this documentary. I thought it was too short. If you're a fan of the band or if you're into punk music, I recommend seeing this documentary. It's a great documentary.

The documentary East Bay Punk is a wonderful work of documentary-making. It's a love letter to the scene, and a tribute to its true heroes. The film is shot in a way that it truly captures the essence of the Bay Area's punk culture. East Bay Punk is one of the few documentaries that I've ever seen that is completely true to the subject. I highly recommend this film to anyone who loves punk. East Bay Punk is a must see for anyone who loves punk music. East Bay Punk is definitely a must see!

This documentary covers the birth of punk music, the rise and fall of the Punk Rock movement, and the rise and fall of the punk rock world. The documentaries director, Russell "B.A.D." Kimball, is not a punk rock lover and is not a punk rocker. But his passion for music, film, and punk rock is contagious. He is the documentary director of the documentary "Revenge Of The Nerds", which is not an attempt to "re-invent" punk rock. Instead, it was a document of a time in history, the 80's, when a new style of music and a new genre of music was born. If you are a punk rock fan, this documentary is for you. If you are not, this documentary is for you.

This documentary is not for the faint of heart. It is very graphic. However, the subject matter is very much relevant to today's society. If you are on the fence, don't miss it. However, if you are a fan of punk, this is a must see.

I've seen this documentary a few times and enjoyed it even more the second time around. The story of punk in San Francisco is not as well known as it should be. The film focuses on the punk scene of the Bay Area in the early 1970s, when the Bay Area punk scene was at its height and punk rock was taking off. As with all documentaries, it's hard to say whether the film is balanced and true to the history, but it's definitely worth seeing. The punk scene in the Bay Area is still very much alive and kicking. For this reason alone, it's a must see.

I would recommend this film to anyone interested in East Bay Punk. The documentary covers the history of East Bay Punk and the other bands that made it big. I would say that this is the most accurate documentary of the scene. It shows you what bands had to go through to become famous and the real struggles of those bands. I would also say that this documentary is very unique and tells the story of a band that was very unique. The history of East Bay Punk is really interesting. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in East Bay Punk.

I'm not a punk, but I found this film to be very insightful. It's not just about the punk movement, but it's about how different generations of people have tried to make the music and art their own and how it has changed over time. It's one of the most enjoyable documentaries I've seen in a long time. The film opens with the early punk era, but it really only covers the last few years of the movement, which is really impressive. It also covers the politics of the time, including the actual punk-rockers of the day. It's not about whether or not they were anti-war, but rather that they were about punk music. The music is not solely what made the people of the era so hardcore, but rather the way they presented the music and the way they put it on. This film is extremely entertaining. It gives you a very clear understanding of what the music and the culture was about. It also shows that the music itself is not just about politics. The film also shows that the people of the era didn't really take any of it seriously, even if it was a bit of a joke. It was the music, the look, and the style that made them feel the way they did. The documentary is very well-produced, and the music is very well-played. It's a great documentary that should be seen.

As a fan of the band and the music of the band, I feel like this documentary is really good. It shows that the band is great, they are really passionate about their music, they are really cool, and they are great at what they do. It is a little different to the band being interviewed. They do the interview in a really long and detailed way, which is great for the fans, but it is kinda boring for the band. I do feel that they could have used more time talking about the band. It could have been better. Overall, I give this documentary a 9/10.

In the summer of 1996, many young people in the Bay Area were celebrating the summer of love in the streets. These young people included the members of the Oakland Slingshot and the Bay Area chapter of the California Youth Revolt. As the summer ended, the movement of love spread to other parts of the state, and soon the word spread to the surrounding Bay Area. In the summer of 1997, the Bay Area was again rocked by the riots. The movement was still going strong, and in August, the rioters and their families moved to Oakland. This was also the time when the Bay Area Youth Revolt began. The film is a moving account of the people who came from all over the Bay Area, including the people of Oakland, to help the Oakland Slingshot with their last concert and to help the Oakland Youth Revolt continue. The film is a great documentary about the Bay Area youth who love punk music, and the people who help them. It is a great documentary for anyone interested in punk, or any group that loves punk music. The music is good, and the people are great, the film is a great documentary.

This film does a wonderful job of illustrating the differences in the attitudes of the punk and hardcore scenes in Oakland. I would have liked to have seen more of the world-class hardcore scene, but that's not a film topic to be taken lightly. The story of the punk scene, the bands, and the hardcore scene in Oakland is fascinating, as is the film itself. The documentary is also informative, and well worth seeing.

This movie is incredibly well done. It does a great job showing the people who made the East Bay punk scene what it really was about. It does a great job showing how it's affected the people that live there, and how it's effected them. It's a great movie, with great photography, and great music. This movie has a great sense of humor and is also very educational. It is also very entertaining. This movie is great for people who want to understand what it was like to live in the Bay area, and for people who want to know what happened in the punk rock scene in the Bay area.

This is an interesting look into the origins of punk in San Francisco. It does a great job of explaining the history of the genre and putting it into context. It does this with a great mixture of interviews with various people who were there at the time, with a small portion of the music video archive footage. It's all well organized and makes the story flow naturally. It is also interesting to see how the music video footage differs from the actual music videos. It's not the same type of music video as you might see in a film like Blood on the Dance Floor or music videos like Devil's Night. I would definitely recommend this film to people who like punk. It does a great job of getting across the history of the genre, it shows it as it really is and it doesn't try to be something it's not. This is a very informative and well done documentary.
