Mid-Winter Punk Film Fest @ Growler Records and Yellow Feather

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!!!

About Growler Distro

Growler Distro, or Growler Record Store, are the same thing: a project aimed at selling records, tapes, CDs, CDRs, zines, books, and cool handmade trinkets in Denver, CO, which I'm proud to say is my home. My name is Molly and I've been tabling at punk shows since 2006 and now I'm expanding to a brick and mortar shop at 742 Santa Fe Drive. (Days and hours TBA) I've always loved underground music for it's freshness and honesty and I want you to feel like you can discover a gem as well. I believe that music brings people together much like a well-prepared meal can. And, I think that underground music and literature often talk about the things in life most important to you, whether that be disenchantment with the state of things or a truly broken heart. I carry a lot of different styles of music, so don't limit yourself to one definition of what underground or punk might mean to you. Growler Record Store has music for quiet, contemplative rainy days, dance parties, and even for the apocalypse. I have music made by women, queers, people of color, and in many different languages. You will find your voice as expressed by talented musicians, just the way it was meant to be. And you will likely leave feeling inspired by and connected to your fellow humans. How to find me: growlerdistro@riseup.net and growlerdistro.tumblr.com
