In anticipation of the upcoming film “Green Room” — a crime horror-thriller centered around an unsuspecting young punk band
starring Patrick Stewart, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, and Alia Shawkat — distributor A24 is launching Green Room Radio, a new online punk rock radio show featuring “a unique programming
format of intimate interviews, anecdotes and a rotating playlist of
hardcore punk.”

Hosted by Tony Rettman, author of “NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980 – 1990,” the weekly series aims to “cover the good, the bad and the crazy moments of this subculture,
bringing hardcore to a broader audience, and educating the public on the
movement’s history, influence and characters.” Each episode will
include one-on-one interviews with a variety of both hardcore punk
legends and upstart musicians, kicking off with a chat with Ted Leo of Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, who will get real about terrible gigs, how he got into the hardcore scene and his upcoming new album. It will also feature music from Born Against,
Straight Ahead and SS Decontrol.

New episodes of Green Room Radio will stream live every Wednesday at 12 pm EST on GreenRoom-Radio.com, with Episode 1 available now. Following the broadcast, each episode will be distributed to iTunes, Mixcloud and Soundcloud.
