The Fifth Reel is proud to present a special ONE NIGHT ONLY/ CALGARY PRIEMER screening of A FAT WRECK: THE PUNK-U-MENTARY!
25 years of punk ethics, chosen family, and surviving the music business. The Fat Wreck Chords story.
Fat Wreck Chords... The influential music label proud to say they’ve spent the past 25 years “ruining punk rock”. A Fat Wreck tells the story of founders Fat Mike (of the legendary punk band NOFX) and his ex-wife Erin Kelly-Burkett, spanning the birth, growth, struggles, and survival of the Fat Wreck Chords label. Half inspirational story of chosen family and community, half debauchery and occasionally involuntary drug use... A Fat Wreck blazes exciting new ground in the cinematic genre of puppet-driven punk rock music documentary filmmaking. If you only see one film featuring a dominatrix spanking a puppet in your lifetime... Make it A Fat Wreck!
Before the feature film Rob Gruszecki and Eric Andrews of ROB & ERIC'S PUNK ROCK SING-A-LONG will be preforming a bunch of radtastic acoustic covers for yer ears!
ALL AGES WELCOME!
