Act Your Age: The Kids of Widney High Story

If you don't already know, The Kids of Widney High are a rock band from Southern California made up of singer/songwriters who have developmental disabilities. The band grew out of a song-writing class taught by Michael Monagan at the special education J.P. Widney High in Los Angeles. From there, they've gone on to cultivate a sizable underground following, and have opened for Mr. Bungle and The Melvins, in addition to being featured on the Vans Warped Tour. Musicians as varied as Smokey Robinson, Jackson Browne and Marilyn Manson have all cited themselves as fans of the band. They were also featured in the film, "The Ringer," starring Johnny Knoxville, in which they performed their cover of the 60s classic "Respect," re-written to be an anthem for those with disabilities.

This very low-budget documentary primarily focuses on The Kids' Los Angeles to Seattle tour and features a number of their most popular songs, including "Insects," "Life Without a Cow," "Respect," "Pretty Girls," and so many more! Both hilarious and moving, you really won't want to miss this! And since admission is free, you really have no excuse at all!
