Before Burning Man, Lollapalooza, and Coachella, there was a series of anarchic punk rock music and art performances in Southern California. The movement pushed boundaries and paved the way for the desert festivals of today. Desolation Center explores the era with appearances from Sonic Youth, Minutemen, Meat Puppets, Savage Republic, and more. The documentary will premiere at the Green-Wood Cemetry in Brooklyn on August 15, 2019.
