The Event

25 years of punk ethics, chosen family, and surviving the music business. The Fat Wreck Chords story.

Fat Wreck Chords... The influential music label proud to say they’ve spent the past 25 years “ruining punk rock”. 
This documentary tells the story of founders Fat Mike (of the legendary punk band NOFX) and his ex-wife Erin Kelly-Burkett, spanning the birth, growth, struggles, and survival of the Fat Wreck Chords label, with bands like Anti-Flag, Rancid, Rise Against, Sick Of It All, The Ataris, Lagwagon, Less Than Jake, Descendents, Against Me!, Masked Intruder, MxPx, Nerf Herder, No Use For A Name, Propagandhi, Subhumans, Tilt, Bad Cop / Bad Cop, The Flatliners, Face To Face, Get Dead, Mad Caddies, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes, None More Black, Morning Glory, Snuff, Star Fucking Hipsters, Randy, C.J. Ramone, Strung Out and loads more.

Half inspirational story of chosen family and community, half debauchery and occasionally involuntary drug use... Features interviews, music and archive footage from the folks running this unconventional label and the bands they released. 

[A Fat Wreck blazes exciting new ground in the cinematic genre of puppet-driven punk rock music documentary filmmaking. If you only see one film featuring a dominatrix spanking a puppet in your lifetime... Make it A Fat Wreck!]
