Flipper To Perform At DVD Release Party

MVD Entertainment Group and Amoeba Music are pleased to announce a very special DVD release party for “Flipper – Live Target Video 1980-81”. This ALL AGES event is FREE and will take place at Amoeba Music (1855 Haight St - San Francisco, CA 94117 – 415.831.1200) on Monday, February 18th at 6pm. Flipper will play a 15 to 20 minute set in celebration of the release. Those who attend will have the opportunity to purchase a copy of the DVD at a special sale price one day before its official release. Attendees can also meet the band and get DVDs signed. Krist Novaselic has also been confirmed in the lineup for this performance.

From the archives of SF's famous Target Video comes this monster release from the classic original early 80s line up of Flipper. Capturing extreme and scorching performances from 1980 and 1981, this DVD helps form a picture of the band that slowed down punk rock and made the kids suffer in the "louder faster" days of hardcore. An intense blend of noise, punk and drone music coupled with an in your face attitude and performance style made Flipper one of most "out there" bands of the early 80s scene. This DVD features stellar performances from Berkeley and the Kezar and is (mostly) unreleased and incredible snapshot into the other side of American Hardcore.

Tracks include: Low Rider, Friends, Brainwash, One by One, Ha Ha Ha, Oh Oh Ay Oh, Love Canal, The Wheel, End the Game, Shine, Nothing, Low Rider, One by One, Hard Cold Old World, Life, and Sex Bomb
