All Kindsa Girls: An Evolutionary Tale Featuring The Real Kids
Philadelphia Premiere
Filmmaker in Attendance

Running Time: 66min
Director: Cheryl A. Eagan-Donovan
Official site: http://www.controversyfilms.com

Synopsis: In 1976, the year the Ramones and the Sex Pistols issued their first albums, ex-Modern Lover John Felice put together the band that would become the Real Kids. One year later, they recorded the garage/punk classic known as the Red Star Album.

All Kindsa Girls traces the evolution of garage/punk rock from its inception with Barry & the Remains through present day interpretations, focusing on the career of singer/songwriter John Felice and his band the Real Kids. The film features interviews with Jonathan Richman, Andy Shernoff, John Flansburgh and Willie Alexander, as well as live performances by the Real Kids, Firestarter, and the Explosion. Often compared to Buddy Holly and Brian Wilson, Felice fights to keep a band together, produce new material, and negotiate a future. John's legacy is his persistence of vision and global influence.

Director bio: Cheryl Eagan-Donovan served as publicist for the award winning features ALL THE RAGE (Roland Tec 1996) and COULD BE WORSE! (Zack Stratis 2000) as well as the music documentary PAYOFF (Kaylyn Thornal 1998.) She provided management and booking for Boston punk and hardcore bands during the eighties and nineties.
