DESTROY ALL TOURS!!! WEST COAST EDITION

October 3, 2010
By Zack Carlson

For REAL!! To celebrate the release of this goddamn life-destroying book project, editors Zack Carlson & Bryan Connolly will be traveling in a beat up minivan across the Western US in November 2010! Presented by Fantagraphics Books and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema!

Now look…these events won’t be yawn-inducing readings or sleepy-ass panel discussions. Instead, we’ll be punching boredom in the kidney with SPAZZED-UP EVENTS and RARE 35MM MOVIE SCREENINGS in every town we stop in! From punk movie all-nighters to free doughnut brunch signings to weekend-long new wave meltdowns, we will sweat blood and fun until the world drowns in manchild rage.

The book will be available at all events, with several shows featuring live guests from the films we’re running. Others will include live bands, lowbrow food and much much more! Also, we’ll be screening an exclusive punk movie clips barrage made exclusively for this tour by the VHS masochists at Everything Is Terrible! And more!

Holy baloneys…it’s going to be an apocalypse of entertainment! Take a look at these shows and try not to swallow your tongue in rabid anticipation:

    I’m so going to the LA screenings!

    The screenings were fun. Would have loved to see Repo Man or Ladies and Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains on the big screen though. The Book is way cool! It jarred my memory with movies I could not for life of me remember their names. Now I can try and find them and add them to my punk movie library. Thanks,
