Here is some info on the World Premiere of the feature length version of Punk Rock Holocaust 2 at the Rock Hall! As you might know, we released the film in a 5 episode version online at the end of 2005 but have since added new footage with the Riverboat Gamblers and Metal VJ Mistress Juliya to fill it out to a full feature film. We're going to be doing a limited theatrical release and festival run and then release it on DVD...we will be announcing the new distributor and street date soon too....wanted to keep you in the loop... if there is anything you can do to help us get the get the word out on the premiere it would be great...

New Bomb Turks - Four guys holding English degrees from Ohio State University, the New Bomb Turks have been declared as leaders in the punk rock revolution by spiked-haired, hardcore punkers everywhere.

The Turks have not toured in a long time, but are coming together again for this very special show!www.myspace.com/thenewbombturks
