You Weren’t There screening and DVD release show this Saturday

YWT2009_DVDparty_WebTo honor its release on DVD, this Saturday there will be a special screening of the excellent Chicago punk documentary, You Weren’t There. The documentary is a wonderful telling of the history of the early Chicago punk scene and is a must see for punk rock fans of any age. The screening will be at the Portage Theater in Chicago at 7pm.

After the movie, The Empty Bottle will play host to a special night of old punk band reuniting to celebrate the DVD release. The lineup includes Tutu and the Pirates, Silver Abuse, and Savage Beliefs! That’s a great lineup of punk rock history all in the same club. The show starts at 10pm and promises to be a really good time.
