Mid-Winter Punk Film Fest
Growler Records & Yellow Feather Coffee (map)
Co-sponsored by Titwrench Fest.
Saturdays in February and March – 6:00 PM
Occurring Saturdays in February and March, starting at 6pm, various films about punk, both fictional and actual, will screen out of a projector mounted from the ceiling.
Yellow Feather will open at the beginning if you are wanting warm beverages to enjoy or perhaps a gluten-free-vegan pastry. Growler will be providing popcorn and other snacks throughout the evening.
All films will be preceded by shorts. Punk shorts, like the kind with studs and patches and maybe a butt flap. Just kidding, I mean YouTube videos or something like that. Whatever is shown will definitely feature punks in studded vests, patches and butt-flaps. Radical!!!
