Over the Edge and Suburbia with RVIVR 

The American drive-in peaked in popularity in the 1950s, around the time teenagers were invented.Soon after, preachers and moralists rallied against both, declaring that the supposedly family-friendly drive-ins had devolved into irredeemable “Passion Pits.” Tonight’s double feature picks up in the late 1970s and early 1980s – the high era of teenage degenerates. The disaffected kids in Over the Edge riot against teachers, parents, and the local cops with Cheap Trick and Van Halen playing in the background. A few years later, the young punks in Penelope Spheeris’ Suburbia wage war with nihilism and contempt to The Vandals and The Germs. With a live set in between the movies by Olympia punk rock band RVIVR, who encourage and challenge that proud tradition of rebellion.

This is part of the Empire Drive-In series.
