Rock 'N Roll Camp For Girls L.A. presents "We Are The Best" Party & Concert

Join us for a great, heartwarming night, with a screening of the recent Swedish coming-of-age smash about the youngest of punks in ‘80s Stockholm, followed by a live performance from some of the Rock ‘N Roll Camp For Girls L.A.’s latest young students. Plus, DJs Tuna and Sarah Anne will spin tunes before and after the show! The folks from our local branch of the Camp have long been a supportive presence at our annual Don’t Knock The Rock fest — and when the highly crowd-pleasing We Are The Best came along, with its tween punk girls and infectiously fun vibe, we knew we had a perfect pairing. Filmmaker Lukas Moodysson has crafted what might be the best look into middle school-dom in recent memory, perfectly capturing how 13-year-old outcast girls would react to indifferent parents, sleepy snow-covered towns offering little to do, alcohol, parties, forming a band with no previous experience, and how to deal with each other when boys get thrown into the mix. Best of all, We Are The Best never panders to either punk or femme stereotypes, instead giving us one of the strongest groups of teenage characters since John Hughes’ heyday.
We Are The Best Dir. Lukas Moodysson, 2013, DCP, 102 min.
