Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone is a 2010 full-length documentary film about the Black punk band, Fishbone, from directors Lev Anderson and Chris Metzler. The film is narrated by Laurence Fishburne and features interviews about the band with Gwen Stefani, Flea, Ice-T, Branford Marsalis, Perry Farrell and more.
Laurence Fishburne narrates EVERYDAY SUNSHINE, an entertaining cinematic journey into the personal lives of this unique Black rock band, an untold story of fiercely individual artists in their quest to reclaim their musical legacy while debunking the myths of young Black men from urban America. Highlighting the parallel journeys of a band and their city, EVERYDAY SUNSHINE explores the personal and cultural forces that gave rise to California’s legendary Black punk sons that continue to defy categories and expectations.
At the heart of the film’s story is lead singer Angelo Moore and bassist Norwood Fisher who show how they keep the band rolling, out of pride, desperation and love for their art. To overcome money woes, family strife, and the strain of being aging Punk rockers on the road, Norwood and Angelo are challenged to re-invent themselves in the face of dysfunction and ghosts from a painful past.
The U.S. theatrical release tour begins with a one week engagement starting January 6, 2012 at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco, California. Fishbone will perform a pre-screening semi-acoustic show before each screening on opening night. After the film’s screening, the band and the filmmakers will be on hand for a Q & A session.
