Unbeknownst to most, the City of Brotherly Love is also the city of hardcore. Overshadowed by it’s close proximity to the New York scene of the 70’s, Philadelphia has always been home to some of the country’s best punk bands, especially now that the grit and grime of city life that made New York such a mecca for punk rock has been replaced by soaring rent and a squeaky clean reputation. Loud! Fast! Philly! A Visual History of the Philadelphia Hardcore Punk Underground chronicles the vibrant DIY punk scene of the birthplace of America from the 1980’s to today, featuring footage of the Dead Milkmen, Atom and his Package, Sickoids, and more.
