“I’m documenting the American hardcore punk music scene because it’s being forgotten. Its history is evaporating as the participants die off or find religion or repress their memories of those dynamic days.” [Steven Blush, American Hardcore forward]. Remember American Hardcore? The book documenting hardcore music from the Minutemen and Flipper to Black Flag and Negative Approach written by Steven Blush was first released in 2001 and is getting a new life with a new edition. Tonight, Milwaukeeans can get a more in-depth history behind the book and film at Milwaukee’s own Rush Mor Records (2635 S. Kinnickinnic) as Blush moderates a slideshow and hosts a meet and greet and discussion. Don’t have the book? Check it out, get it signed, take it home. The event starts at 7 p.m. and goes until 10 p.m. Blush will not only have tons of stories about hardcore’s stalwarts, but regional acts such as Die Kreuzen and beyond. Pick his brain. Absorb some musical history dispensed from a walking, talking music encyclopedia. You might only get one chance to do so, after all.
