366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 230


The Date: May 17
The Movie: Quadrophenia (1979)
What Is It?: Franc Roddam makes one of the few movies based on an album that’s worth a damn. This tale of teen angst and identity trauma amidst clashes between mods and rockers is both relevant to the era it intends to chronicle and the era in which it was made: a flick for mods and punks alike. The music is rather good too.
Why Today?: On this day in 1964, the so-called Battle of Margate between mods and rockers began.
