As Summer 2015 comes to a close, we wanted to share a bunch of photos from this BLAZE-A-FIYAH season of rocking, rolling, boozing, cruising, party busing, and general debauchery. We send our love to every band, every manager, every agent, every photographer, and perhaps most of all, every patron who came and rocked the fuck out with us in some way or another.

In February 1979, Manhattan was a different place. Don't even get us started on Brooklyn.  New York City was cold, and  it was dangerous. It was a time of colorful gangs, graffiti covered trains, and broken truces.  It was a time, of… The Warriors.

New York City has cleaned up a lot since then, but to be honest, we kind of miss  the sense of style and danger exemplified by Turnbull AC's, The Orphans, The Warriors, The Lizzies, The Punks, and The Gramercy Riffs.

35 years after it's debut screening, Celebrate the 35th Anniversary of theis groundbreaking film that has captivated multiple generations with it's street smart characters and violent action, in the city where it was all created! Eat, Drink, and get rowdy at (Le) Poisson Rouge - a multi-media art cabaret that offers impeccable acoustics, so those bottles clanking are guaranteed to give you chills!

We'll have DJ Small Change spinning the tunes from the epic film soundtrack before and after the movie and giving away Warriors Movie Soundtracks courtesy of LaLa Land records.

We'll also be giving out prizes and random free drinks to those who represent the best dressed members of the gangs from the film!

Plus: Q+A with Apache Ramos from The Orphans and other stars of the film!

Hosted By NYC Punk Rock Icon John Joseph

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, children of all ages, ROCKS OFF is proud to bring to you you THE FIRST EVER PRO WRESTLING FILM FESTIVAL! 

 

Blood! Guts! Triumph! Heartbreak! Revenge! - These are all the cornerstones of professional wrestling, which remains the world's most unique sport. Populated with unique characters portrayed by even louder personalities and events behind the scenes that are often far more bizarre than what's been scripted for its devoted audience, pro wrestling is one hell of an ever-evolving, always changing, 
most excellent subculture.

Hot off its successful Rock N' Roll Film Festival this summer, Rocks Off, NYC's sweetest concert promoter, is proud to announce that it will explore, exploit and spotlight the world of professional wrestling with the Rocks Off Pro Wrestling Film Festival. The first festival of its type in the world, The Rocks Off Pro Wrestling Film Festival will take place from Thursday November 21st through Saturday November 23rd, 2013 in New York City at the historic Kraine Theater.

Much like rock n' roll, pro wrestling is a unique beast that cannot be tamed - loud, arrogant, in your face, and awe-inspiring in its athletics and its theatrics. Steeped with unique history and personalities, it's a slice of Americana that cannot be explained, it can only be explored and loved – and Rocks Off intends to do just that - celebrate professional wrestling in all its two-fisted, off the top rope, kill or be killed, bad-ass glory!

The Rocks Off Film Festival is the brainchild of Rocks Off guru Jake Szufnarowski and PWInsider.com's Mike Johnson, one of the top writers on the pro wrestling genre. "We are looking to showcase original, unique content that explores and celebrates all aspects of professional wrestling,” said Johnson, who is helping to curate the Festival.

"Pro Wrestling can be dramatic, fun, campy, serious, shocking and more - sometimes at once - and we intend for the festival to bring out those same types of emotions for the audience. We are looking to cultivate a fun, eclectic, unique atmosphere - like a great pro wrestling card would," added Johnson.

All of the festivities will be hosted by the voice of Juggalo Championship Wrestling, native New Yorker KG Kevin Gill. Gill, a featured voice actor in the new Saints Row IV video-game alongside WWE greats Roddy Piper and Rob Van Dam, will be involved in all aspects of the festival, including hosting special post-screening Q&As.

The triple threat of Szufnarowski, Johnson and Gill are teaming as curators of the festival. If you are a director or producer looking to solicit your film for inclusion in the Rocks Off Pro Wrestling Film Festival, email RocksOffProWrestling@gmail.com . Limited slots are still available but we are seeking complete films, documentaries, short films, animated films and more!

Film Festival programming will begin to be announced this Monday 9/16, but we can announce our opening night festivities will include a special reception, a collection of unique short films on professional wrestling and a special night of comedy starring Colt Cabana and friends, live in 3-D!
