I sat the entire show in rapt attention, a witness to the honest writing of Kirk Lynn, passionately delivered by Eli Weinberg

The Cold Record begins as an informal conversation outside a roller door.

There’s an announcement, ‘not much’ will happen, we’ll make a mixtape followed by a 28-minute story.

But then EVERYTHING happens, and I must keep the secret or get out!

Weinberg sits in front, flanked by lamplight; we’re all dangerously close seated in a semicircle on eclectic chairs, each introducing our punk song.

What follows is a fast-paced monologue, which is captivating, funny and sad.

The story of a 12-year-old boy, a middle school punk rock fan, trying to break the record for the most sick day absences from school.

We’re strangers, sipping beer, observing a stream of rapid-fire consciousness with a mutual understanding, we’re on his side, because – punk rock.
