AFROPUNK

Presented at:
Hallwalls' Temporary Space, 700 Main St.

AFROPUNK
SCREENING & SHOW (TBA)
Hallwalls, 700 Main Street, Buffalo
$6 general, $4 members • trailer

James Spooner's documentary AFROPUNK (66 min., 2004) tackles the hard questions such as issues of loneliness, exile, inter-racial dating and Black Power by following the lives of four people who have dedicated themselves to the punk rock lifestyle. They find themselves in conflicting situations, living the dual life of a person of color in a mostly white community. The documentary intercuts interviews from scores of black punk rockers from all over the nation with scenes from our four protagonists' lives. They come from different regions, generations, genders, and sexual preferences but their stories are amazingly similar. AFROPUNK features performances by Bad Brains, Tamar Kali, Cipher, and Ten Grand and exclusive interviews by members of Fishbone, 247- spyz, Dead Kennedys, and others. A live performance (TBA) will follow the screening. Watch the trailer.

Tony Conrad @ Hallwalls


Culled from nearly 40 years of Hallwalls' still and video archives (1977–2014), this exhibition will serve as a prelude to Introducing Tony Conrad, the upcoming retrospective at the UB Art Gallery and Albright Knox Art Gallery, by showcasing a selection of performances and still imagery documenting Conrad's decades-long association with Hallwalls.
