If you live in the Bloomington, IN area you won’t want to miss this free event at The Bishop. Author Steven Blush will be in town as part of his current book tour promoting the second edition of his book American Hardcore also in attendance will be a panel of musicians from some phenomenal Midwest Punk and Hardcore bands such as The Gizmos, The Repellents, The Panics, and The Zero Boys (who reissued their seminal album Vicious Circle last year on SC). They’ll be discussing the Midwest’s role in the Hardcore movement of the early 80s and will show clips from both the movie version of American Hardcore and vintage live footage from Zero Boys’ DVD Live at the Pizza Castle 1981. NUVO has a great interview with Steven about this event, which you can check out right HERE. Oh and did I mention that this is FREE??
