Our documentary crew was recently granted the very special opportunity to shoot an interview with Richie Bucher - East Bay artist and bassist of Soup, Sweet Baby and more - at The UC Theatre in Berkeley, CA. The theatre closed in 2001 and holds an important place in the hearts of nearly everyone we have interviewed for our movie. It was THE center for culture, film and art in Berkeley for decades.

This summer, its renovation begins. The UC Theatre will reopen in 2015 as a non-profit music venue but could still use help raising funds to make it happen. Visit their website at http://www.theuctheatre.org/ for more information on how you can contribute.

Thanks to David Mayeri at The UC Theatre for making our visit possible.

Kristin Green Is Green Day producing this film? Will they also be in the film?
East Bay: By The Punx, For The Punx, About The Punx Kristin - Yes and yes. They will be a focus alongside many other bands, individual artists, volunteers and other East Bay punk scene participants. See http://eastbaypunk.com for more info. Thanks.

Is Crimpshire a different band than the "Crimpshrine" that I swear Billie has mentioned a million times? I can't keep these punk bands straight.

Exciting to see for sure that they're starting the Green Day specific one. I'm interested in the East Bay generic one, but this is really the interest.

No, they meant "Crimpshrine". In case you didn't know, Pete is credited for helping write the music for 2000 Light Years Away, Billie jammed it out with him, Jesse Michaels, and Dave EC Henwood

Other than a few pick-up interviews here and there, after 11 months, today our documentary crew will complete the last of over 200 fantastic interviews. I'm wholly grateful for this ride. Thanks to our patient and knowledgeable producers - Billie, Mike, Tre, Pat, Chris and Mari. And to my diligent crew (from who I received these flowers and abrasive inside joke of a card) - Greg, Anthony, Matthew, Dan, Caoimhe,

East Bay: By The Punx, For The Punx, About The Punx Steven and Bill - Fixed it in the text! Eggplant has been tagging photos with names and I guess this one got thru. Apologies.

corbettredford Work print deadline for the documentary looms. This is, of course, the most harrowing & sleepless leg of the production... but it is the time I will look back on most fondly when it is all over. 3d
