‘Skinheads USA: Soldiers of the Race War,’ (A 1993 documentary that shows how little has changed.)

With all the neo-nazi stuff happening in the news lately, we’re concerned that younger people not be aware that America used to be OBSESSED with nazi skinheads. They were constantly on talk shows, being hyped in the news, and then in 1998, American History X came out, capping off the whole phenomenon.

AMERICAN JUGGALO

I really never thought I would say that I saw a beautiful documentary about juggalos. American Juggalo by Very Ape Productions definitely just changed my mind. It’s definitely not a juggalo-sploitation piece like you find everywhere else on the internet. There’s plenty of on-camera toplessness, drug use, “woop woop,” etc. But everyone is allowed to […]

FNT has been the best underground party in NYC for years now, and it’s spreading to the rest of the country now too, thanks to a successful SXSW event and a magazine with TRANSMISSION magazine. We interviewed Fight Night leader Bekim Trenova to talk about all that and what’s to come. PLUS: footage of the release of the magazine. PLUS: footage of the SXSW event.

The Germans Who Dress Like Native Americans and Refuse to Return Their Scalps

Contributing photographer Jennifer Osborne has been working in Europe on a photography project about cultural appropriation of Native Americans by Europeans. In wake of Pharrell Williams’ controversial “Indian Headress” on the cover of Elle Magazine, this degree of Native Dress-up seems extra offensive.

GOOSEBUMPS “SCARED TO SEE A DOCTOR” RECORD RELEASE SHOW AT 538 JOHNSON (FULL SETS FROM GOOSEBUMPS, AJAX, MERCENARY, LIBYANS, AND LA MISMA)

Like an episode of Jerry Springer, but with more fireworks.

FIGHT CLUB: THE BEST OF FRIDAY NIGHT THROWDOWN

Following the news of Throwdown’s return at SXSW this year with a Texas vs. NYC event, it seems only appropriate to take a look back at the history of Friday Night Throwdown, and the coverage we’ve had of it here on Superchief over the years. For the uninitiated; Friday Night Throwdown wasn’t just NYC’s best underground boxing event, it was NYC’s best underground party.

TEXAS VS. NYC: THROWDOWN RETURNS AT SXSW THIS YEAR

The organization that brought Ford models, Marines and Bloods together for New York’s best underground party is bringing their business to Austin, and bringing with them a Texas vs. NYC event…and Superchief will be covering the whole thing, from start to finish.

HIGH ON HUNGER: JANE CHARDIET

“High on Hunger” is Jane Chardiet’s new zine, featuring personal essay, photography and interviews with 12 artists, including some of our favorites, about their 2013 and their artistic goals in the new year, along with photographs of each licking fire. It’s good stuff, so I asked Jane about her 2013, because turnabout’s fair play and that’s how the game works.

12 O’ CLOCK BOYS (BALTIMORE STREETBIKE REALNESS)

Whatever your city is doing, what the homies out in B-More are doing is 10x as crazy. 12 O’ Clock Boys is one of the hardest movies we’ve seen in a long time, hands down, exploring a city and a culture that just doesn’t give a fuck (and featuring Baltimore himies like Schwarz on the soundtrack) the film gets more done in it’s 75 minutes than most documentaries do in twice that.

TAPE BAG #1: I HAVEN’T GOTTEN OFF MY COUCH IN DAYS.

THERE IS A TINY LEG A QUARTER OF AN INCH BELOW YOUR TENTH RIB.

“Although Tiny Leg’s sound owes much of it’s inspiration to the Oakland glucose and thumbtrack scenes of the mid-nineties, and has been called by HotFridge magazine ‘a thumbcore homage to the sound of Velvet Curtis and Taco’ and ‘a slick-stale, neo-juicy, post-hipster alchemy, somewhere in between gluke-wave and puke-base’ by PeckerwoodsToday, those sentences are too journalistic and not souague enough, if one may permit my french.”

TOD SEELIE’S “BRIGHT NIGHTS” BOOK RELEASE & PHOTO SHOW AT SUPERCHIEF GALLERY AT CULTUREFIX (VIDEO)
