Podcast #18, Green Room with Ben Macensky

On this episode, we speak with Ben Macensky, the musician whose songs -- written with Sam Jones -- became the music of the Ain’t Rights, the punk band featured in the new film, Green Room, the latest from director Jeremy Saulnier, known for his movies Blue Ruin and Murder Party. It tells the story of said punk band, who take a gig at the end of a less-than-successful tour, only to have things go very very wrong after the show.
