Reel & Restless Fest 2012 featured Orange County Hardcore Scenester (OCHS) screening & a ton of rare live performances. The fest took place at Churchill’s Pub in Miamo, FL on September 14th, 15th and 16th, 2012.
Here’s the official announcement plus the line-up. Scroll down to see the videos:
Blindspot/Strong Reaction Booking in collaboration with iconic visual effects artist and Hardcore enthusiast Evan Jacobs is pleased to announce that the documentary Orange County Hardcore Scenester, written produced, and directed by Evan himself, will have an official screening in Miami on September 15, 2012 in conjunction with the release of the DVD! In order to capture the essence of Evan’s film, which documents the California Hardcore scene from ’90-’97 by way of his first-hand accounts and includes footage of such bands as Insted, Carry Nation, Mean Season, and Inside Out to name a few we will also be having an exhibition of many noteworthy flyers, fanzines, distro lists, and other memoribilia from this important period in the history of Hardcore.
However, no screening or art exhibition which is striving to capture a period in Hardcore in it’s truest form will succeed without a roster of seminal bands from that era! What we have arranged here is not your everyday list of bands who “reform” every two weeks, yet swear they are broken up. Many of these are one time deals for the first time in 20-25 years!
