Midway Pictures Announces Premiere of Document: "It's a Bash!" Film

PROVIDENCE, RI -- Midway Pictures, producers of the award-winning
documentaries You Must Be This Tall: The Story of Rocky Point Park
and On the Lake: Life and Love in a Distant Place, proudly announces the
premiere of the documentary film It's a Bash! on April 30, 2010 at
Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island.

The premiere will be followed up with screenings nightly at 9 p.m. over at the Cable Car Cinema, also in Providence, from May 2nd to May 6th.

The new documentary is an in-depth look at seminal Rhode Island
punk rock band Neutral Nation, and, by extension, of the Providence
music scene. Neutral Nation were an active band in the scene
throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, before deciding to retire their
existence as an active band.

The band has played a series of well-attended and regarded shows in the intervening years.
The film explores the reasons behind the band's popularity in Rhode Island, their break-up, and why they subsequently continued to play music
together.

The film's director, David Bettencourt, says the film touches on more
than just the history of one band.

"It's a Bash! takes a look at the many great people that helped to build a live music scene here in Providence. It's a film about being in a band."

The premiere screening will be followed by a rare Neutral Nation live
performance.

"When we started the band the three goals were: free beer, meet girls, and be on the cover of The Attleboro Sun Chronicle's weekender edition.
Mission accomplished!" said Mike Yarworth, Neutral Nation's vocalist.

Tickets to the premiere and show went on sale Friday, March 5 at
http://www.lupos.com. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door.
