On an October morning in 1987, I woke up to my mom yelling at my older brother and shaking the newspaper at him. “Rock fans riot on ferry” screamed the headline. To this day, I have no idea if Andy really was asleep in his friend’s car like he told our mom or was “rioting” along with everyone else on their return trip to Seattle from a GBH show in Bremerton. While I’d only ever thought of this as a bit of family lore, the event has gone down as a critical moment in Seattle music history. This all-ages event celebrates the 31st anniversary of that night with a film screening of David Larew's Voices in the Dark, a sneak peek of The Infamous Kitsap Ferry Riot film, and music by Howling Gods and Toecutter.
