The intro video will continually be updated with bands that will be on the URGH! A Detroit Music War DVD. So check back often and thanks for your support!

Urgh! A Music War is a British film released in 1982 featuring performances by punk rock, New Wave, and post-punk acts, filmed in 1980. Among the artists featured in the movie are Magazine, The Go-Go's, The Fleshtones, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, XTC, Devo, The Cramps, Oingo Boingo, Dead Kennedys, Gary Numan, Klaus Nomi, Wall of Voodoo, Pere Ubu, Steel Pulse, Surf Punks, 999, UB40, Echo & the Bunnymen and The Police. These were many of the most popular groups on the New Wave scene; in keeping with the spirit of the scene, the film also features several less famous acts, and one completely obscure group, Invisible Sex, in what appears to be their single public outing. ~Wikipedia

That was then…

But this is now…

1 night + 2 stages + 7 hours of girls & boys caught forever in the act. 

Eighteen of the hottest emerging bands in Detroit give a wink and a nod to the original cult classic film while creating something completely new, completely Detroit, completely now!

Urgh! A Detroit Music War will be filmed live at the legendary PJ’s Lager House on June 11th, 2011. When the dust settles the end result will be a feature length DVD that will be a defining document of the current Detroit music scene. 

As fresh as the music will be, the film will also be completely unique. With a team of Detroit artists directed by acclaimed experimental filmmaker, Brandon Walley, this bombastic night will be captured and filmed in multi-camera HD, 16mm and Super 8. Audience members will also be encouraged to shoot video clips from their smart phones with various takes to be used throughout the DVD!

This fundraiser will go into the film production and DVD production costs.
