12.14 Kill All Redneck Pricks! A Documentary Film About A Band Named KARP !

Ottawa Explosion and Invisible Cinema presents...

KILL ALL REDNECK PRICKS!: A Documentary Film About A Band Named KARP (http://www.karplives.com/)


2011 / USA / 89 min / Blu-ray
Director: William E. Badgley Featuring: KARP, Kathleen Hannah, King Buzzo, Calvin Johnson, Kimya Dawson
Print Source: William E. Badgley

We are proud to present the Ottawa premiere of this documentary. An epic story of the rise and fall of the most hormonally overloaded band of punk-metal geeks to ever emerge from the mossy woods of Thurston County, Kill All Redneck Pricks takes you from the high school corridors and soggy chicken coops of Tumwater, WA, to the dizzying heights of punk rock stardom, only to make a shockingly painful crash landing. The players are real, and the stakes are life, death, and the inspired dreams of youth. King Buzzo, Justin Trosper, Kathleen Hanna, Kimya Dawson, and Calvin Johnson are just a few of the legion of friends and heroes that narrate the history and comic brutality of KARP. This is a vital story of the Pacific Northwest, loud music, and fragile humanity.

William Badgley will be in attendence.

11.10 The Famines, The Nymphets, Dagger Eyes & Pregnancy Scares!

Ottawa Explosion and Davey Quesnelle present...

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 10TH

QUESNELLE FEST 2011!!!

It's that time of the year again! Davey is getting yet another year older and another year wiser. This year he was wise enough to only play one set which will probably be a whopping 10 minutes so that he can hang out and have fun with all of you!

Joining Davey in the celebrations are...

THE FAMINES (Edmonton/Montreal)
http://www.thefamines.ca/

This duo are no strangers to Ottawa. They've destroyed expectactions, hair length competitions, rock & roll music as we know it and a few beers have been shredded along the way. Two men with the power of ten will destroy you.

THE NYMPHETS (Stockholm/Montreal)
http://www.thenymphets.com/

This is another great duo who have played Ottawa a few times including a very memorable set at the Manx with the White Wires way back when. Fast and nervous punk.

DAGGER EYES (Montreal/Ottawa)
http://www.myspace.com/thedaggereyes

This band has been around for a year now. Here's the description I gave when I first heard the song Vampire back then: "Totally dark and vicious like getting chased into a dark alley by a razor-wielding psycho."

PREGNANCY SCARES (Ottawa)

A bunch of shitheads playing shitty shit for other shitheads.
