Minutemen Mike Watt and George Hurley along with Director Tim Irwin and Producer Keith Schieron will sit for a question and answer session with the audience after the screening.

WE JAM ECONO - THE STORY OF THE MINUTEMEN is a feature length documentary chronicling this ground breaking, early 80's punk rock band from their humble beginnings in the harbor town of San Pedro, CA to their untimely demise when lead singer and guitarist D. Boon was killed in a van accident in December of 1985.

Told by those who were there, WE JAM ECONO - THE STORY OF THE MINUTEMEN weaves together footage from over fifty newly shot interviews with archival interviews and live performances to capture the dynamic energy and do-it-yourself spirit of these punk rock pioneers. Newly shot interviews include Minutemen Mike Watt and George Hurley as well as Dez Cadena, Ed Crawford, Flea, Greg Ginn, Henry Rollins, Ian Mackaye, J Mascis, Jello Biafra,  Kira Roessler, Milo Auckerman, Nels Cline,  Raymond Pettibon, Richard Hell, Richard Meltzer, and Thurston Moore, to name a few.

About 1500 people attended the premiere. Apparently over 100 hours of footage (not including audio-only) were assembled for this project, which was eventually distilled down to "feature length" (presumably 1-2 hours). You can get (me) a cool "econo" t-shirt at the minutemen.com web store (I wear a large)...Look for this film to screen somewhere near your town!3/1/2005 6:36:42 AM
