We’re lucky enough to have Sydney’s first screening of Skate Bitches, a fucking cool DIY film put together by Samuel Raooul Shanahoy and featuring members of some of the bands playing (AWSK & Rogue Elephant)
Aggie Doom, Nancy Spew, Bobby Sox, Motley, Van Delle, Weetzie and Rodent are the skate bitches, a bad ass skateboarding girl gang who steal each other candy, terrorise the streets and are bff’s.
One day, Aggie Doom brings her friend Josie to the secret club house. Josie rides a longboard, loves pastels and is very preppy. Some of the skate bitches don’t want Josie to ride with them and interrogate her about her curfew, criminal activity and what music she likes. The gang is torn between those who want to give Josie a chance and those who have already made up their mind about her. This causes the skate bitches to have a fight and some personal secrets to be exposed.
To try and save the gang they visit Jr Rat Queenie, the weird yet wise queen of the rats who lives in a dumpster. Jr Rat Queenie gives them a talking to about girl hate but will all of them agree? Will they be able to grow from this? Will their friendships be changed forever? And will Josie still want to ride with them by the end of the day?
Featuring music by Pony Time, Zombie Dogs and RVIVR.
SCREEN SATURDAY 9TH JUNE @ THE NEW VENUE SPACEPORT :: DOORS OPEN 5.30 – SCREENING WILL COMMENCE NOT LONG AFTER! TELL YOUR FRIENDZ!
