Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone
Sep 03, 2012
(Lev Anderson and Chris Metzler, 2011, USA, Blu-ray, 100 min)
If you don't want to spring for the Bumbershoot ticket, but still love the band Fishbone, we've got a treat for you. Join us for a one-time screening of Everyday Sunshine, an outstanding documentary about Fishbone, musical pioneers who have been rocking on the margins of pop culture for the past 25 years. From the streets of South-Central Los Angeles and the competitive Hollywood music scene of the 1980s, the band rose to fame, only to fall apart on the verge of "making it." Laurence Fishburne narrates this look at a unique black punk rock band, a story of fiercely individual artists reclaiming their musical legacy while debunking myths of young black men from urban America. With an introduction and Q&A from the band, this promises to be a memorable screening experience.
"Packed with fantastic performance footage, their doc solidly makes the case that, throughout the '80s and early '90s, Fishbone was one of rock's best live acts." -Seattle Weekly
