Descendents at Roseland Ballroom (more by Keith Marlowe)
O worshipers of the mighty ALL...So far no word on additional screenings. Until then, check out the teasers for the Descendents film below.
Nearly two years ago we rolled tape on the first of more than 40 interviews in an attempt to tell the story of not only our favorite band but some of the most over-achieving and under-documented people in music history. So it is with great pride that we present this preview of our upcoming feature-length documentary, FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL.
Now, to address the question that has (lovingly) plagued us from the get-go: WHEN CAN WE SEE THE MOVIE ALREADY, YOU JERKS!?... As you well know, the story of this band's 33-year career is vast. And our objective has been to touch on all aspects, diving deeply as often as we could. So when you put that up against the backdrop of four dudes working out of their own pocket during the hours after their "real" jobs have ceased, you can maybe see why this movie wasn't finished in the blink of an eye.
That being said, a commercial release date remains undetermined at this time. We will spend the upcoming months touring the festival circuit and figuring out the best means of distribution. However, until that is decided, we are excited to announce plans to hold public screenings of the movie in select cities across the country later this year, beginning with a premiere in the band's hometown of Fort Collins, Colorado.....
You may know the name Dave Smalley from one of his bands like Down By Law, All, or Dag Nasty, but one of Smalley's first roles was as frontman for Boston hardcore band DYS. DYS reunited in 2010 and have since created new material for release via Bridge 9, dropping a single per month including their latest track "Unloaded" which makes its streaming debut here and is out TODAY via iTunes. Head to Bridge 9 for the previous two singles, "Wild Card" and "Sound of Our Town" featuring Dicky Barrett of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
We cornered Dave Smalley to ask him a few quick questions regarding DYS, the reunion, and the single-per-month model of releasing the new DYS material. The results, and that song stream, are below.
We previously discussed Phily's Riot Fest East that will feature an appearance from the mighty Descendents and The Suicide Machines who they also play with in NYC. Riot Fest East, an offshoot of the Chicago festival, happens on September 24th.
The Chicago version of the festival, October 5-9, previously announced that Weezer, Social Distortion, Descendents, 7 Seconds, ALL (two different eras!), Helmet, and X (playing Los Angeles) were all on the lineup, but left one big announcement for today...
On Friday October 7, 2011 Danzig will headline Riot Fest and perform a career spanning show featuring sets of Danzig, Samhain and Misfits songs with none other than Doyle joining on guitar the Misfits set. We've waited years for this and we can't wait to see the inside of the Congress Theater turn into a churning sea of humanity.Tickets for both Riot Fest Chicago and Riot Fest East are now on sale, and more band announcements are stil to come(!).
Riot Fest show flyers and some videos is below.
It is with great regret that we must announce that the upcoming ALL East Coast Tour with Off with Their Heads and Shot Baker in January 2010 has been temporarily postponed. Although a full recovery is anticipated, Bill is unable to perform at this time, due to a current medical situation. It will take some time for Bill to recover, and because of this, it was necessary that the January tour be postponed until a future date. Of course, refunds will be given at your point of purchase. ALL would like to send their deepest apologies for everyone who was planning to attend the shows. We're extremely excited to return to the east coast and are looking forward to rescheduling the tour as soon as possible.Damn. This affects all initially announced dates + the more-recently added 2nd Brooklyn show & probably the related Mercury Lounge show.

Due to unprecedented demand for snarky, high-speed, fun-loving punk rock, All (Scott Reynolds on vocals, Bill Stevenson on drums, Karl Alvarez, on bass, and Stephen Egerton on guitar) have tacked on an EARLIER show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 1/9 with doors opening at 5PM, just four hours before the doors open for their previously announced shindig at the same venue. Tickets for the early show go on sale Wednesday (12/2 at noon). The later show is still on sale now. Off With Their Heads and Shot Baker are on tap to open both shows as well as the entire tour.
So why not add a second show one night later? One reason might be because Scott Reynolds (of All), Off With Their Heads and Shot Baker will share a bill that night (1/10) at Mercury Lounge. The three artists will be providing support for old school Cali punks Agent Orange. Tickets are on sale. The intimate NYC show is part of a greater Agent Orange tour that kicks off in Florida at the tail end on 2009 and extends through the end of January.
Scott Reynolds dropped an LP in early 2008 as part of Scott Reynolds & The Steaming Beast - a band which also featured Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips and producer Dave Fridmann in their ranks. Pick up a copy of that record here.
All, um, All and Agent Orange tour dates and a recent All live video are below...

As a youngster, my punk rock friend Bob was constantly trying to get me to listen to more than just metal. He succeeded in getting me into groups like Pegboy, Black Flag, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Samhain, The Misfits, Public Image Ltd. and the like. But two acts that really appealed to me at the time and ended up being the soundtrack to the summer of 1992 were The Descendents and ALL.
In all my 32 years on earth there have been many opportunities, yet I have yet to see either band live. Luckily that's (sort of) going to change when ALL invades the east coast, for the first time since 2002 (the first time since 1988 with Scott Reynolds), with a four show mini-tour that will bring them to Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday, January 9, 2010 (tickets onsale 11/18 at noon). ALL. On a Saturday night. Practically in my own back yard. YES.
For those of you who have been living in a cave, ALL evolved from The Descendents, a band who once claimed they couldn't sell out a telephone booth but whose impact on rock is undeniable. The Descendents created ALL, a concept celebrating the satisfaction that comes from one's highest achievement, eventually naming their new band in tribute to their own personal ideology.The line-up will consist of Scott Reynolds on vocals, Bill Stevenson on drums, Karl Alvarez, on bass, and Stephen Egerton on Guitar. Off With Their Heads and Shot Baker open all shows. The tour dates are below...

Fun Fun Fun Fest (a music festival this weekend in Austin) successfully mixes punk, indie, singer-songwriter, hardcore, dance, hip-hop, metal, comedy, new and old. For instance, after blowing my mind to the thrash metal stylings of Municipal Waste, I immediately ran over to catch the end of Bishop Allen's family friendly indie rock set. I like that. One of the bad things, like most festivals, is how much overlaps. On Saturday I had to completely give up seeing The National, Z-Trip, Neil Hamburger, Yacht, and Hawnay Troof. Tonight (Sunday, November 9th), I'll probably have to miss all of Clipse, Tim & Eric, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, in favor of seeing Bad Brains. I also have to decide between Bouncing Souls and Minus the Bear.
Highlights from day one (yesterday, Saturday) included Dead Milkmen, Municipal Waste (wall of death), Dead Milkmen, Walter Schreifel's solo set (Rival Schools was good too), Dead Milkmen, Killdozer (killed it), Dead Milkmen, Dan Deacon (camp counselor of the year), Dead Milkmen, and Krumbums (punk is not dead). What I caught of Octopus Project, Trail of Dead and Deerhoof was also great. If I say anymore, I'll be late for Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears and/or Kevin Seconds. For now, here are some more pictures from day one...

Dillinger Four and Municipal Waste have teamed up for a one off show at Danbro Studios in Brooklyn on Oct 14th with The Measure and The Ergs. Tickets are on sale online and at Academy Records in Williamsburg. The show is a record release party, celebrating the release of the long delayed Civil War by Dillinger Four on Fat Wreck Chords (Fat Mike of NOFX's label).
Municipal Waste will hit the road for a mini-tour with The Casualties leading up to the Brooklyn show, including a date with Caustic Christ in Pittsburgh and appearances at two noteable punk festivals.
The first, Riot Fest in Chicago, is headlined by the reuniting All, and also features The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, TSOL, DOA, Jay Reatard, Bouncing Souls, Paint It Black, and many many others. The second, and much larger The Fest 7 in Gainesville, will feature eight stages over three days and will include over 250 bands including Coalesce, Young Widows, The Holy Mountain, Valient Thorr, Ampere, Capsule, and the final show by New Mexican Disaster Squad.
Following Brooklyn, Municpal Waste will play a few more shows including one with Lamb Of God, and an appearance at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin (they replaced Flipper) followed by a UK tour in December with the mighty Iron Lung.
NOFX have scheduled a three shows in the tri-state... at Irving Plaza on Oct 15th & Oct 16th (both sold out) and Starland Ballroom on Oct 17th (tickets here). Dillinger Four opens all three shows.

All? Yes, ALL.... of the second incarnation (with Scott Reynolds on vox, the first had Dave Smalley of Dag Nasty) of the classic Descendents offshoot have reunited and will serve as the headliners for this year's Riot Fest in Chicago on Oct 10 - 12.
Scott Reynolds (vocals) Sez:
"Stephen is going to jump a motorcycle over 10 flaming school buses, then save all the children inside them before they burn up! Bill is going to levitate, then disappear, then reappear on Karl's shoulders who will be riding a unicycle on a tightrope made from dental floss suspended 100 ft. above the stage. And I'm going to give one lucky audience member a makeover that will take 10 years off his/her appearance! So we better start practicing!! Everybody should come because it's going to rock sooo hard."Tickets for All's performance, Oct 12, will go on sale here on Thursday April 24th at 8AM.
