This documentary uncovers the story of it’s “hardcore” music fans that won’t let it die—those that create fanzines, record labels and generally support the music—along with local musicians over time, including Gary U.S. Bonds, Gene Vincent, Front Line, The M-80’s, Buttsteak, and The Candy Snatchers, featuring never-seen-before-footage and local original music from a variety of genres.
