    Skeeno in Black & White: Kevin Seconds and the Reno Punk Scene

    Thursday August 13, 2015 / 6 – 7:30 pm

    Join us for an evening of words and film as Kevin Seconds of the internationally-renowned band 7 Seconds reminisces about the early days of Reno’s vibrant and ultra-independent punk and hardcore scene of the early ’80s and his band’s role in it.

    Sure to be both funny and passionate, the night will be rounded out with a screening of 1981’s “7Seconds Goes to San Francisco,” a long-lost underground film by Gary Elam and Jim Deiderichsen. This evening is part of “Skeeno in Black & White & Words: Roots of Punk in Reno 1979-1985,” a Reno punk retrospective exhibition featuring photos, fanzine, flyers and letters at The Holland Project from August 11-September 4, 2015.
