In 1984, a teenage Dave Travis set out to capture the L.A. punk rock scene on video tape, logging in hundreds of hours talking with musicians and recording local shows. This program is a compilation of Travis' live concert footage of the Meat Puppets, Minutemen, Twisted Roots, and Redd Kross (with The Bangles' Vicki Peterson on guitar) from 1984, interspersed with interviews from the 1990s with members from each group. Rare conversations with Mike Watt (Minutemen), Jeff and Steve McDonald (Redd Kross), Cris and Curt Kirkwood (Meat Puppets), Paul Roessler (Screamers, Twisted Roots) and Hellin Roessler (Twisted Roots) round out this low-fi, DIY classic.
