"MAXIMUM SUMMER: THE BEPSTEIN DOCUMENTARY" WORLD PREMIER
w/ musical guest The Bepstein Show!!
8pm @ The Black Cat
1811 14th St. NW DC
"Maximum Summer is the real life Peter Pan story of a man who refused to give up the passions of his youth. Benjamin Epstein (Bepstein) is everything we forgot to be when we grew up. All the things we tried to hold on to, but let slip away as life berated us with new responsibilities and priorities. There is an element of purity in his philosophy; he's just having fun, how many of us can put our anxieties on pause long enough to genuinely enjoy something?"

Hey just wanted to throw a quick plug at the I Live Sweat series focusing on sexism in the punk scene. So far, they've run personal essays from Lauren Denitzio of the Measure [sa] and Mariel Loveland of Candy Hearts. Lauren also did a great interview on Punk Rock Pravada that's worth reading as well. Over at out.
Due to an emergency medical situation, we have to cancel. You should still go though, there are a ton of great bands playing. We'll be playing Best Friends Day in Richmond, VA in August, so RVA punx, you can catch us then... Sorry about all this.
