Party at Ground Zero and Back Again 

It's not always easy for the innovators. While the Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers emerged from the early punk scene and went on to great success by mashing funk and soul into their sound, other bands -- such as Los Angeles pioneers Fishbone -- never quite achieved the breakout success of their peers. Narrated by Laurence Fishburne and co-directed by Missouri native Chris Metzler, Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone follows the trials and tribulations of South Central's outsider black rock band, who blazed their own trail by playing a sugar-crazed fusion of ska, punk, soul and funk. Despite the line-up changes, mental illness and indifferent record labels, Everyday Sunshine tells the inspiring story of a band that never apologized for who they are, and one that refuses to give up. The film screens at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday (August 26 to 28) as part of the Webster Film Series at the Winifred Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue). Admission is $5 to $6 and includes a post-screening question and answer session with the filmmakers. For more information call 314-968-7487 or visit
