Ulster punk weekend at IFI

This weekend sees the release of the award winning Good Vibrations, the story of Terri Hooley, his record shop and the birth of the Northern Irish punk scene. The movie will be showing at the IFI in Dublin and, to celebrate, there will also be a documentary double bill to complement the film. Both directed by John T. Davis, Shellshock Rock (1979) features not only the Good Vibrations shop but bands such as Protex, The Undertones, Rudi, The Outcasts, and Stiff Little Fingers. Self-Conscious Over You (1980), meanwhile, records the April 1980 concert at the Ulster Hall when Good Vibrations Records packed the place with 1800 people for The Outcasts.

Good Vibrations opens on March 29th. Shellshock Rock and Self-Conscious Over You plays on March 30th at 16.10.
