That thrill of being a teen and driving towards the bright lights of the city to bear witness to a crazy punk band stays with you forever. Chris Parcellin understood that feeling; he grew up with bands like the Real Kids, the Modern Lovers, the Lyres, and the Neighborhoods— all bands that exploded onto the scene in the mid-to-late 70’s. He cherished the times he escaped his town of Malden for the bright lights of Boston where he and his friends jumped around to songs like “All Kindsa Girls.” These punks were creating catchy garage music amongst urban destruction, and Parcellin wanted to give back to these bands by creating a documentary about them. Boys From Nowhere includes commentary from Jonathan Richman, Dennis Leary, and record producers, Andy Paley and Bruce Dickinson, amongst others.  This energetic documentary travels back to a time and a place that deserves more recognition.
