Yesterday's No Room For Rockstars film screening was the perfect way to start our week of events in Austin. Stacy Peralta, the film's producer, did a Q+A along with Joe from Forever Came Calling, one of the bands featured in the movie. I have to hand it to that kid, Joe. He's hilarious. He was up in front of the crowd talking some junk about how there was no way he would be talking to any girls last night because he'd done nothing but sweat since he got to Texas...
Gearing up for our No Room For Rockstars screening here in Austin, got a few familiar faces in the line. If you are not in Austin you can catch a live webcast of the bands at 2pm PST/5pm EST right here.
Here's what we're working on for tomorrow. If you're in Austin come to the movie. If you're not, watch the webcast.

Mitch Lucker is another dude that we followed around on the Vans Warped Tour for our new documentary No Room For Rockstars. The director Parris Patton told me that initially he was terrified to approach Mitch and took days to gather up the courage haha. Catch Suicide Silence at a ton of international festivals this summer.
Mike Posner started the tour as a fresh college grad with only his first single out and ended it 10 weeks later with a number one album. Not too shabby. You can get a behind the scenes look at what that was like in No Room For Rockstars. Mike is heading back to colleges this summer for a headlining tour.
When they met Joe and his band Forever Came Calling in line selling CD's trying to make their way into the tour they had no idea he'd become an essential part of the movie. You can catch Forever Came Calling play right after the No Room For Rockstars premiere in Austin tomorrow in person or right here in the webcast.
You can get to know Christofer Drew in our No Room For Rockstars documentary screening tomorrow at 1PM. Since we wrapped filming he's been on a bit of a hiatus but is about to hit the road again next month with a US tour.
From director Parris Patton & producers Stacy Peralta & Agi Orsi, No Room for Rockstars spins a yarn that will get you whether you're a fan of Warped Tour or not. Now that's good story-telling. Come hang out with us for a screening Tuesday 3/13 at 1100 E. 5th St (Warehouse), Austin. Doors at at 1pm with performances by Forever Came Calling & Pennywise following the film.
