SF Docfest kicks off this Thursday evening with the Bay Area premiere of Every Day Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone, followed by a post-screening Q&A with the filmmakers and the band. Fishbone will also be performing live at DNA Lounge after the screening.

Here's what SFist's punk expert Erick Pressman had to say about the film:

1993 is a year that will always stick out to the me because it was the year I had to awkwardly face down my entire family and their friends in an ill-fitting Ralph Lauren suit at my bar mitzvah. I had to study for this nightmare of a day constantly, and one of my only breaks from the tedious chanting came on Saturday nights when MTV ran its infamous Headbanger's Ball from midnight till 2AM. One of these nights, I saw a video that blew I pre-adolescent, rookie punk rocker mind. It was Fishbone's video for "Swim".
