Event Description

The Shield Around The K is Heather Rose Dominic's insightful documentary on Olympia, Washington's seminial K Records, profiling the birth and growth of the punk rock DIY label. Co-founders Calvin Johnson and Candice Pedersen are interviewed along with over 20 K artists and peers including Mecca Normal, Lois, Rose Melberg, Ian MacKaye, Slim Moon, Dean Wareham and more. The Shield Around the K features performances by Calvin Johnson's legendary Beat Happening. International Pop Underground Festival footage features Fugazi, Beat Happening, Mecca Normal and others. The Shield Around the K portrays an independent record label whose lo-fi credibility has never been compromised.

In addition to screening the film, we shall be having cupcakes, and hopefully getting some people down to sell some zines (if you're interested, let me know), and a few other fun filled bits and pieces + some cracking DJs!
