Coming off our East coast premiere we’re very excited to be able to share the good times with our friends up in Washington and Oregon this summer! Director Jenni Matz will be in attendance for some Q&As….
Here’s where we will be:
Thursday, August 7 @ Pickford Film Center, Bellingham (8:30pm):
NJIFF will screen an encore presentation of our film at this Fall’s festival too: on Sunday, October 12 at Vorhees Hall in New Brunswick @ Rutgers, 7pm. More info at http://www.njfilmfest.com/
We are putting together a screening tour for this film, but it takes a lot of work! If you live in a city that you think would like to screen this movie, help us let theaters and festivals know that we wanna come rock out! You can always email us with contacts, leads, suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org

Rye Coalition: The Story of the Hard Luck 5 – Jenni Matz (Los Angeles, California)
The legendary Maxwell’s of Hoboken, NJ will be closing its doors forever this July. Rye Coalition will be playing one final show at their home-town palace with the amazing Bosnian Rainbows on July 19, 2013. Get your tix now at Ticketfly
We were saddened to hear that Hoboken’s iconic club Maxwell’s will be closing its doors July 31 after over three decades of showcasing the best of the underground indie music scene. Words cannot express what the club meant to the band as musicians, as friends, and as fans of great music (and great food!). We played there, worked there, ate there, and yes, were even banned from there. Rye screened movies there, and even played our reunion show there back in 2011. Todd Abramson and co always were good to Rye. As Jon says in the video below, “If you ever want to start a band or a club, take notes.”
Couldn’t help but craft this ode of sorts to the club we always called home. Thanks, Maxwell’s. We still love you.
More Rye anyone? The Hard Luck 5 will play another benefit– “Rock for the Park”, on Friday, May 10th at 7PM at The Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre featuring Aminal, Life Eaters, The Aster Pheonyx Project and Rye Coalition. Tickets are $40 each (but see below for $25 discount code!) and can be purchased by visiting riverview.brownpapertickets.com
SPECIAL DISCOUNT FOR FANS: Tickets now through April 30th only are $25 with the Discount code of “bands” (no quotes) all lower case
We’re very excited to share the news that the hard luck 5 will be opening for garage-rock legends the Sonics as part of a fundraiser for our friends at Norton Records!
