  1. Philip Seymour Hoffman as CREEM editor Lester Bangs in the film "Almost Famous." The real Lester Bangs
  2. 2019 - USA - 75 MINUTES A FILM BY SCOTT CRAWFORD FEATURING: CAMERON CROWE, ALICE COOPER, KIRK HAMMETT, JOAN JETT, MICHAEL STIPE, GENE SIMMONS, PAUL STANLEY, CHAD SMITH, PETER WOLF, WAYNE KRAMER Distributed in Canada by WeLikeFilms in association with Hollywood Suite Rent the film for $9.99 starting on July 31st here; http://www.filmswelike.com/films/creem-americas-only-rock-n-roll-magazine Ripping back the curtain on legendary rock rag CREEM Magazine's wild and disruptive newsroom; a dysfunctional band of unruly outsiders who weren’t all that different from the artists they covered. Capturing the messy upheaval of the '70s just as rock was re-inventing itself, the film explores Creem Magazine's humble beginnings in post-riot Detroit, follows its upward trajectory from underground paper to national powerhouse, then bears witness to its imminent demise following the tragic and untimely deaths of its visionary publisher, Barry Kramer, and its most famous alum and genius clown prince, Lester Bangs, a year later. Fifty years after publishing its first issue, "America's Only Rock 'n' Roll Magazine" remains a seditious spirit in music and culture.
  3. White Riot White Riot is a moment in time when music changed the world. When a generation challenged the status quo. It’s Woodstock meets the March on Washington, punk-style. New Release 😧 Rubika Shah | 80 min | 2019 | UK | RATING: PG VIRTUAL CINEMA SCREENINGSVirtual Cinema Screenings start July 9th. Cost to rent = $9.99 (includes tax). Rent it via Hot Docs Cinema: https://boxoffice.hotdocs.ca/websales/pages/info.aspx?evtinfo=127738~fff311b7-cdad-4e14-9ae4-a9905e1b9cb0&epguid=8533b035-0c76-4133-bf01-9b9878c87b37& Britain, late-1970s. Punk is exploding. The country is deeply divided over immigration. The National Front, a far-right and fascist political party, is gaining strength as politicians like Enoch Powell push a xenophobic agenda. Outraged by a racist speech from Eric Clapton, music photographer Red Saunders writes a letter to the music press, calling for rock to be a force against racism. NME, Melody Maker, and Sounds all publish the letter. Flooded with responses, Red discovers many share his views. Teaming up with like-minded creatives Roger Huddle, Kate Webb, Syd Shelton and Australian graphic designer Ruth Gregory, the team bands together to create Rock Against Racism (RAR) and a fanzine, Temporary Hoarding. Speaking directly to the youth, Temporary Hoarding reports stories and issues that the mainstream British media ignores, like immigration, the Catholic side of the Northern Ireland conflict, and the police’s controversial “suspected persons” (sus) powers. They give a voice to the voiceless. The National Front begins to strike back, committing acts of violence against RAR supporters and petrol-bombing their HQ. Despite this, RAR spreads virally across the UK and into Europe, becoming a grassroots youth movement. The Clash, Steel Pulse, Tom Robinson and other top bands of the day jump on board.

  5. Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad with special guest Street Pharmacy and ReggaddictionThursday, May 21st, 2020Lee's Palace - 529 Bloor St. West, Toronto, ONTime: Doors 8pm | Show: 9pmTickets: $30 Online Tickets: http://bit.ly/PandaTO Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/556985638494014/ NEW YORK REGGAE HEAVYWEIGHTS GIANT PANDA GUERILLA DUB SQUAD ARE COMING TO TORONTO The Billboard chart topping “Grateful Dead of reggae” will perform at Lee’s Palace on Thursday, May 21, with Ontario bands Street Pharmacy and Reggaddiction to open the show. Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad (GPGDS) formed in 2001 in Rochester, New York. A mysteriously fertile area for developing the U.S. reggae scene, the city has ties going back to 1981 when Lee “Scratch” Perry recruited his entire backing band from Rochester. The Upstate NY region became early supporters of GPGDS, while its members were in high school, playing weekly gigs to cut their teeth. In these formative years, Giant Panda began to explore their songs with an experimental approach, mixing in layers of afro-beat, R&B and americana, while keeping their roots firmly planted in reggae rhythms and lyrical content. Around 2005 tapers began to notice and soon after one of the band’s first Colorado shows received homepage placement on the popular taper website Archive.org. Almost overnight GPGDS became a mainstay on the jamband festival circuit. After five years of synthesizing their sound on the road, GPGDS released their first studio album Slow Down (2006) proving their abilities as songwriters and setting the stage for a string of eclectic releases, topping the Billboard Reggae chart twice along the way with Steady (2014 Easy Star Records) and Make It Better (2016 Rootfire Cooperative). In 2019 the band released two singles, “Stop Fighting” and “Cool It,” followed by their first release of 2020 “Good Love.” Now two decades into their careers Giant Panda has become an institution, widely regarded as “the Grateful Dead of reggae” and continuing to grow with the world around them. See them perform at Lee’s Palace in Toronto on Thursday, May 21, with Ontario bands Street Pharmacy and Reggaddiction opening the show.
