The Showcase Theatre Doc: Three More Screenings at The Concert Lounge
In 1993, Ezzat Soliman opened a live music venue in Corona, California that became a vital stop for hardcore, punk, ska, metal, and alternative bands from around the world. A close, solid community grew with the popularity of the theatre and lasted until the doors shut for good in 2008.
The Showcase Theatre Documentary is a loving recollection of the Showcase and its essential contribution to underground/independent music and the Inland Empire music scene. The film includes interviews and live performances by The Adicts, AFI, Death By Stereo, D.I., Eighteen Visions, Guttermouth, Knockout, Narcoleptic Youth, Poison The Well, Reel Big Fish, Save Ferris, The Skulls, Strife, Subhumans, The Vandals and many more.

One More Week Until Things Get Sick & Twisted at The Fox
Patrick Maloney finally gets to bring Spike & Mike’s Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation back to the Fox Performing Arts Center on Saturday, May 28th!
It’s a double feature with the first Riverside screening of Animation Outlaws, a spectacular documentary about “Spike” Decker and Mike Gribble and how they influenced the world of animation beginning right here in Riverside.
Riverside’s Eva Mikhailovna (of Eva and The Vagabond Tales) will open the show with her first Riverside solo set in quite some time.
In September 2017, Patrick interviewed Spike by telephone. Here’s the audio of the conversation that was the beginning of the return of Spike & Mike events to Riverside:
