|NFC News Flipper DVD release party - February 18|
This all-ages event is free and will take place at Amoeba Music (1855 Haight St., San Francisco, CA 94117, 415.831.1200) on Monday, February 18 at 6:00 p.m.
FLIPPER will play a 15-to-20-minute set in celebration of the release. Those who attend will have the opportunity to purchase a copy of the DVD at a special sale price one day before its official release. Attendees can also meet the band and get DVDs signed.
From the archives of San Francisco's famous Target Video comes this monster release from the classic original early '80s lineup of FLIPPER. Capturing extreme and scorching performances from 1980 and 1981, this DVD helps form a picture of the band that slowed down punk rock and made the kids suffer in the "louder-faster" days of hardcore. An intense blend of noise, punk and drone music coupled with an in-your-face attitude and performance style made FLIPPER one of most "out-there" bands of the early '80s scene. This DVD features stellar performances from Berkeley and the Kezar and is (mostly) unreleased and incredible snapshot into the other side of American hardcore.
