With raw enthusiasm we premiere the second installment of Room 205 with OFF! For this explosive episode, director Jason Farrell and set designer Tamarra Younis took inspiration from the legendary “Bates Motel,” located around the corner from Keith Morris’ Sunset Junction apartment.
Spooky, sketchy and fantastically well-lit, today’s hardcore matinee continues with the mauling wallop of “Poison City” from the debut album First Four EPs (Vice Music).
The four members of OFF! come from an array of truly awe-inspiring bands. Keith Morris (Black Flag/Circle Jerks), Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides), Steven McDonald (Redd Kross), and Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless/Hot Snakes/Rocket From the Crypt). Formed in Los Angeles in 2010, they’ve already released four EPs of classic hardcore and logged more road miles than most bands will in their entire existence. It is an honor to host this group of friends and favorite musicians in Room 205.
Look for the final installment of OFF! at Room 205 to launch on August 15.
