In what appears to be the modern-day punk version of "The Outsiders," check out the newly released trailer for "Bomb City," an impressively-shot indie thriller that recounts a real-life 1997 incident, in which a pack of local punk teens got into a violent confrontation with the local high school football jocks in the small conservative town of Amarillo, Texas. The brawl, tragically, resulted in the hit-and-run murder of a 19-year-old mohawked punk rocker named Brian Deneke.

Directed and co-written by Texas filmmaker Jameson Brooks, who makes his feature film debut, "Bomb City" stars Dave Davis (Logan, TV's The Walking Dead) as Brian. While other cast members include Logan Huffman, Lorelei Linklater, Henry Knotts, Eddie Hassell, Maemae Renfrow, Luke Shelton, Dominic Ryan Gabriel, and Glenn Morshower.

Endorsed by fellow Texas filmmaker Richard Linklater (Boyhood) who declares the film "works on every level", "Bomb City" will be hitting select theaters and VOD on February 9th.

synopsis:
Winter 1997. Amarillo, Texas. Brian Deneke is known for his green mohawk and undying passion for punk music. He throws punk shows with his friends at a rundown venue known as "Bomb City." Brian, along with many of his fellow punks, refuses to conform to the conservative culture that surrounds them. Their radical appearances stir social intolerance within the community, particularly with Cody Cates, a high school jock who assimilates to a pack known as "white-hatters." After losing a football game, Cody and a few other white-hatters have an altercation with several of the punks. This conflict ignites a series of hostile encounters between the two groups, climaxing one evening with a horrific, violent street fight. The night would soon become notorious for being one of the most controversial hate crimes in modern American culture. Based on a true story.
