Dr. Martens presents The New York Hardcore Chronicles

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

7:15 pm | $15 admission | 1 hr 30 min | Documentary | Following the screening, there will be a Q & A with director Drew Stone, Craig Setari (Sick Of It All), Yana Chupenko (P.M.S. / Wench) & Bob Riley (Stigmata).

Director Drew Stone’s, The New York Chronicles Film, is an incredible journey thru the community and culture of the iconic New York hardcore scene (1979-2015) that is still vibrant, relevant and going strong to this day. Not the typical history of a local music scene but so much more. Shot in an episodic format the film contains over 60 interviews, never before seen footage, photos and a blazing soundtrack. Buy the ticket and take the ride!

“I’m really looking forward to this film, as a fan of the hardcore genre / culture in general, and of course the special New York hardcore faction we’re all part of, “Said Freddy Cricien (Madball). “I go way back with Drew Stone – he actually filmed Madball’s very first video, and I consider him a friend. He has the credibility, the experience and most importantly – the passion to deliver something super authentic, which for me and I’m sure for a lot of other folks, is most important of all!”

Look for The New York Hardcore Chronicles Film out on the road this summer.

ABOUT DR. MARTENS

The first pair of Dr. Martens boots rolled off the production line on the 1st April 1960. With its trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole and heel-loop, it was a boot for workers, initially worn by postmen and policemen; comfortable, durable and lightweight in comparison to its competitors at the time.

Throughout Dr. Martens history, the brand has been adopted and subverted by diverse individuals, musicians, youth cultures and tribes. These are the people who stand out from the crowd and their journey of self-expression has always been accompanied by a pair of DM’s.

The simple silhouette allows people to customize each pair; while on a utilitarian level their famous durability and comfort make them ideal footwear for the world of gigs and street fashion. On an emotional level, they are badge of attitude and empowerment.

The Northamptonshire factory where it all began still exists to this day, in the village of Wollaston. A special range of ‘Made In England’ products are manufactured here by a small, close-knit team of people schooled in traditional shoe-making and the unique process that makes Dr. Martens like no other shoe on earth.
