Local pop-up movie theater Mise En Scenesters presents an evening of wild and wonderful indie music featuring the films of filmmaker Dave Markey. Whether it was wearing out at least three VHS copies of his killer documentary, “1991: The Year Punk Broke” (featuring from Nirvana, Sonic Youth and The Ramones) or just endlessly quoting dialogue from his LoveDolls films (“Thanks for Killing My Mom”), Markey’s films stamped themselves onto our souls in a way that has continued on through the years, says MES’s Chris Dortch.
This evening salute to Markey includes both his classic 1982 hardcore punk documentary “Slog the Movie” and a screening of “My Career as a Jerk,” Markey’s new film about punk rock legends The Circle Jerks.
All proceeds will be sent directly to Markey, says Dortch, so you can feel good about the fact that you’re celebrating the work and career of a true independent filmmaker.
