SU16: MN Premiere of "Never Get Tired"

At a moment when crowdfunding seems like it will be the future of the industry, “Never Get Tired” takes as its focus the world's first donation-based band, Bomb the Music Industry! and its big-hearted, neurotic, and loudmouthed mastermind, Jeff Rosenstock. Years before Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails offered free downloads of their new releases, Rosenstock founded a DIY platform for himself and others with just a guitar and his computer. Fans around the world cling to Jeff as the only true punk icon of the internet age, but as Jeff rounds out a decade with Bomb the Music Industry! he begins to outgrow the chaos and search for a way to secure his future while still staying true to his ideals. (Synopsis provided by filmmaker.)
