The Other F Word (Ritz at the Bourse) A documentary on the lead singer of goofy punk outfit Pennywise alongside other punk fathers. While on tour a few years back, we crashed at a tenement-like apartment in Cincinnati that was inhabited by a group of young delinquents (one of whom was celebrating his final night of freedom before an impending five years in prison for selling LSD). My friend Dan and I were trying to sleep on the floor, but our hosts were up all night. One of them, a 21-year-old unemployed father of two, asked us, “You guys like punk? This is Pennywise.” And thus the soundtrack of the night was a band that we’d known better than to listen to since the mid-90s. To each his own.
