“About the play: A history of America in the 1980s, an idiosyncratic genealogy of punk rock music, and a personal narrative of growing up as an outsider, punkplay is a mix tape tribute to the excesses and energy of adolescence. Mickey, a thirteen-year-old suburban mist, is befriended by an angry runaway named Duck. Together, they boys attempt to reinvent themselves using punk rock, but as reality threatens to crash in on them, their fabricated world of amped-up music and shocking band names becomes just as oppressive as the society they’re desperate to reject.”

“So long as there is money, there will never been enough money for everyone” and in this spirit we share space, food and music with each other on May Day.
There will be some form of food (people are suggested to bring wild, large amounts of food if they can swing it), music by B*Right, Holy Shit!, and Lucky Bone, a dance party nearer the end of things, lots of mulling about, and beverages. The party goes from 3pm to 9pm, May 1st, May Day, Tues Day. Please if you work, consider calling in sick and withdrawing your labor on this day that is after all an anti-capitalist holiday, a day that people have literally died for in order to work less.

Paris 1980 – The myriad subcultures that emerged in the 50’s and 60’s – mods, rockers, punks, teddy boys, and skins, were increasingly sites of contestation. Easily identifiable fashions and musical tastes made visible a separation that was increasingly politically based. By 1985, racist, far-right ideologies had almost completely overtaken skinhead subculture. Gangs of skinheads posted up at various subway stops and roamed the streets of Paris looking for punks, people of color, and anyone ‘different’ to beat up. Racist skinheads were taking territory and using fists, chains, and steel toed boots to fight for it. Recognizing this enormous problem, Parisian youths from several subcultures took things into their own hands by banding together into gangs to kick the racist skins out of the city. The gangs started small and outnumbered, but by the end of the decade had become so notorious that most racist skins dropped their fashions out of fear of being identified by the unrelenting “skinhead hunters.” This film chronicles the development and interplay of said subcultures and tells the story of the reclamation of the streets of Paris by the participants themselves.
