A short film is on the way starring two icons of Texan punk: David Yow of Scratch Acid and The Jesus Lizard, and Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers. You can check out the film’s trailer above

As Dangerous Minds reports, the short, called Walden Pink, is directed by Peter Bolte who previously cast Yow in his 2013 film All Roads Lead. A synopsis for the film, which will be premiered later this month at the Victoria TX Indie Film Fest, says: “Walden Pink sits disheveled on a park bench as the world drifts by him. The rest of his day is met with one unfortunate confrontation after another by the likes of religious proselytizers, process servers, angry bartenders and abrasive barflies. These conversations only distract him from finding a peace and clarity to this repetitive and draining existence. Just as Walden’s day began, his day ends seated on a park bench in a state of bitterness and self-loathing.”
