Set in Salt Lake City in 1985, SLC Punk! follows two punks, Stevo and “Heroin” Bob, as they navigate the various subcultures and scenes in a city erroneously billed in the film’s trailer as “the most conservative city in America.” Other than the well-chosen soundtrack of punk rock gems, the 1998 film written and directed by James Merendino is perhaps most memorable for Matthew Lillard’s performance as Stevo — both his on-camera delivery and his narration of the film create an unforgettable character encountering pitfalls and contradictions after adopting his belief in anarchism. Catch a 35mm screening at 8:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11, at Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson Blvd. A “Behind the Screen” concert follows the film at 10:30 p.m. The punk rock after-party features, Sub-Sahara, Loafers and Thyroids, three local acts influenced by punk and garage rock. Tickets for the film are $10, and tickets to the concert are $8, with a bundle price of $16 for both. For more information, visit thetexastheatre.com.
