Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 will be hosting two screenings of Filmage: The Story Of Descendents/ALL in San Diego, CA. Hoppus once credited Descendents' classic 1985 album I Don't Want to Grow Up for it's vast influence on him:
Many albums have impacted my life, but I think the first time I heard a Descendents album changed things for me forever. The album was I Don't Want to Grow Up. Here is a band singing fast, melodic songs about life, relationships, the boredom of suburban youth, and food. I loved the energy, the mentality, the catchiness of the melodies. I was hooked immediately.
I had to have all of their albums, and then needed more, which led me to seek other bands, expanding my world by leaps and bounds. The Descendents were the beginning of it all for me.
The film will be shown at 11:00am, 1:50pm, and 4:40pm. Each screening also features a special post-show Q&A session with the filmmakers, hosted by special guests Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and Mike Halloran of 91X-FM. Tickets run $10.
