The film will be based on article on Topic.com called “How Chinese Food Fueled the Rise of California Punk” by Madeline Leung Coleman as published in June 2019.
The article explains how during the recession of the late 1970s and early 1980s, Chinatown restaurants from Sacramento to San Francisco started renting their banquet halls for rehearsal space and booking the rowdy young bands of nascent West Coast punk as dinner entertainment to bring in additional business. It asserts that these Chinese and Filipino restaurants became some of California’s most important venues and the focal point of the seminal West Coast punk music scene.
