For those of you who haven't been following the tale (and why should you have been?), a woman named Vicki taped a bunch of the hardcore shows that ODFx, Agitated, Starvation Army and a bunch of other bands played around '82 & '83. But no one I knew had seen her in 20-odd years. The shows she taped were at The Dale, a little neighborhood bar we kinda took over for about 6 months. During that time all kinds of hardcore luminaries from the Meat Puppets, to DRI, The Dicks, MDC and a bazillion more, played shows there. ODFx was more-or-less the house band at the time & opened almost every show.
It's incredible to find this stuff. Like the Holy Grail as far as I'm concerned. I didn't even know it existed. For all these years I had no memory at all of us ever being video-taped, let alone being video-taped numerous times. So this is really mind boggling. I haven't seen the material yet. That's gonna be weird...
The world premier of the film is set for the 1st of July in Cleveland. I'll post more information when I have it!

The song is about these three girls who used to come to every hardcore show, often accompanied by their mother. And not as a chaparone, either. In fact, it was mom who discovered the scene and brought her daughters to the shows to check it out! Maybe today the idea of a woman in her late 30's bringing her kids to see a punk rock show sounds passe. But this was definitley not the norm in 1982.
Check out the video to learn all about it and to find out who Toby was and why he was always biting people.
