The Bay Area music collective 924 Gilman, for instance, has served as an exemplary DIY community center for over 30 years. Progressive, open-minded, and decidedly antiestablishment, it’s run entirely by crusty punks. The nondescript nonprofit center has had a hand in launching arena-filling acts such as Green Day and Metallica, all the while giving marginalized youth a home away from home.
To delve deeper into the legendary Bay Area punk scene, stop by FilmBar, 815 North Second Street, on Thursday, September 14, when they screen Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk at 7 p.m. Tickets are $9 to the 21-and-over event.
