Jello Biafra will attend for Q&A after screening.

Wax Trax! Records begins in a tiny storefront in Denver Co in the mid 70s as a way to sell UK imports and fringe music to collectors. At the center of Wax Trax! are two music-obsessed men and their taboo love affair. They soon move their store to Chicago, where it will have a lasting effect on underground and experimental music. With the store’s success, Wax Trax! releases its first record, and soon becomes synonymous with the new genre known as industrial dance. Interviews with key artists from pioneering bands including Bauhaus, Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Foo Fighters, Throbbing Gristle, describe getting their US start from Wax Trax! The independent label’s success throughout the 80s and 90s starts to pique the interest of major record companies, which initiates the heartbreaking spiral downward that almost buries the origin of US electronic music forever.

About The Event

Ted Geoghegan 2017, USA, 91 mins

The War of 1812 has revived violent hostilities between the British and their erstwhile American colonial subjects. The powerful Mohawk nation of the New York region is divided as to whom they should stand by, and so they maintain a position of neutrality. They want no part in the killing – but the killing is coming to them. An impulsive attack on an American encampment has drawn the vengeful attentions of a ragged band of American military renegades, led by the vicious, racist Hezekiah Holt. Oak, Calvin, and their British lover Joshua flee into the woods so familiar to them, but the murderous musketeers on their trail will not be deterred. Not without the spilling of blood.
