"Stand Up and Scream!"
Punk history will expand at the Wednesday screening of "Stand Up and Scream!" with a full panel Q&A with Target Video founder Joe Rees and a host of friends. The panel will be moderated by Vale of "Search & Destroy"/ReSearch Pubs. Chip Kinman (The Dils), Alice Bag (The Bags), Bruce Moreland (The Weirdos/Wall of Voodoo), Henry Peck (Vinyl Fetish) and DJ Don Bolles (The Germs) will surly have a lot to say including many stories from the past, no doubt. Don't miss this chance to listen to this group tell their stories of old school punk rock and how it was to live, work and be creative as part of the early California punk and post-punk scene. Buy tickets here: "Stand Up and Scream" Tickets Getting this group together is punk history itself!
September 28, 2016 7pm Target Video screens "STAND UP AND SCREAM" at The Regent theater in downtown Los Angeles (448 S. Main St.) Q&A to follow with Joe Rees and special guests. Tickets available at Ticketfly. Be There!!!
This Fall, "New Rose", Joe Rees/TargetVideo77's piece on the classic, first wave punk band, the Damned, will screen in Paris as part of the "Europunk" exhibit at the Cité de la Musique. The museum is located in the La Villette Quarter of the 19th arrondissement. Looks like Public Image Ltd and the Buzzcocks will be playing as well at the end of October. We hope to set up another Target show outside the museum atmosphere that will be a full TargetVideo77 tour through American and European classic punk rock. We'd love to do a club show with a touring band of like mind. That's what works best for the audience, we think. Any old schoolers out there touring?? Let us know if you will be in Paris....
Hey! Listen to Jill Hoffman's radio show tonight on WSLR!
Tonight, May 9, 2013 9PM ET / 6PM PT hear punk legend, Tony Kinman. Tony's bass playing and vocals are well known. Best known for his bands the Dils, Rank And File. Blackbird and Cowboy Nation (all with his brother, Chip Kinman) and later Los Trendy, he also spent some time playing with the Avengers. Target caught one such Avengers gig at the Temple Beautiful in black and white video thanks to Joe. Joe was always there, recording.
Besides The Dils, Blackbird was always one of my favorites. Brothers Kinman were using drum machines when it was VERY uncool. KMFDM did a good remix of "Class War" that's well worth checking out not to mention the great cover DOA did of the tune. But I liked them all, RAF in all its various lineups, Los Trendy, and Chip's PCH.
Check out some great links above about Tony and Chip and learn some more! They were covered by many others including the Everly Brothers, Mike Watt (with Dave Grohl, Pat Smear and Eddie Vedder on the old Jon Stewart show,) and more.
