WARRIORFEST - A 2nd Annual Celebration of NYC's Most Iconic Cult Film - THE WARRIORS
In February 1979, Manhattan was a different place. Don't even get us started on Brooklyn. New York City was cold, and it was dangerous. It was a time of colorful gangs, graffiti covered trains, and broken truces. It was a time, of… The Warriors.
New York City has cleaned up a lot since then, but to be honest, we kind of miss the sense of style and danger exemplified by Turnbull AC's, The Orphans, The Warriors, The Lizzies, The Punks, and The Gramercy Riffs.
For the second year in a row we'll be celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the groundbreaking film that has captivated multiple generations with it's street smart characters, and violent action, in the city where it was all created! Eat, Drink, and get rowdy at (Le) Poisson Rouge - a multi-media art cabaret that offers impeccable acoustics, so those bottles clanking are guaranteed to give you chills!
We'll have DJ Small Change spinning the tunes from the epic film soundtrack before and after the movie and giving away Warriors Movie Soundtracks courtesy of LaLa Land records.
We'll also be giving out prizes and random free drinks to those who represent the best dressed members of the gangs from the film!
New York City- Come Out To Play-Yay!!!!!
Meet n Greet & Q n A with Cochise of the Warriors, Apache Ramos of the Orphans, plus more
Cochise from The Warriors gang, Angel Ramos of the Orphans Gang, along with some more stars of the film TBA will be on hand to meet and greet and also do a QnA about their experiences shooting this amazing time capsule / love letter to the bygone era of New York City.
Hosted by New York Punk Rock Icon John Joseph
Hosting the first-annual WarriorFest is New York City's own John Joseph
Growing up literally on the streets of the Lower East Side in the 1970s, John Joseph has lived through the tough times in New York City - the burnt out buildings, gang fights, graffitii and grime that used to define NYC. After forming the influential hardcore band the Cro-Mags in 1984, John Joseph has defined this New York City attitude through his music and writing, and there is no more perfect host to guide us through NYC's dystopian rough and tumble past.
The Warriors Soundtrack - 35th Anniversary Edition
CAN YOU DIG IT?!!! La-La Land Records, Universal Music and Paramount Pictures are proud to present the remastered and expanded soundtrack to the 1979 Paramount Pictures cult classic motion picture THE WARRIORS, starring Michael Beck, James Remar and Deborah Van Valkenburgh, and directed by Walter Hill. The original A&M album presentation has been remastered, with songs from Joe Walsh, Arnold McCuller, Desmond Child and others sounding better than ever. But to top even that, Barry DeVorzon’s influential original film score finally makes its world premiere, nearly 35 years since the film’s release (the two score tracks on the original ’79 album were uniquely mixed for that release). Some of DeVorzon material presented here was ultimately cut from the film, so fans will get to here these tracks for the very first time. DeVorzon’s masterful, progressive synch-rock score undoubtedly inspired many filmmakers and composers, from John Carpenter and Harold Faltermeyer to Hans Zimmer and countless others. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Mike Matessino, this special release of 3000 units features exclusive, in-depth liner notes from writers Eric Lichtenfeld and Tim Grieving.
