I'm heading out to Chicago in April for the Chicago International Movies & Music Festival. I'm going specifically for the premiere of Freaks In Love, the Alice Donut documentary co-directed by my good pal Skizz Cyzyk.
Freaks in Love (USA)
4/15/11 10:00 PM
Society For Arts: 1112 N. Milwaukee Ave
This is 25 years in the world of underground rock, as seen through the eyes of freakshow psych-punk band Alice Donut. From the glory days of CBGB to grinding nationwide tours in beat-up vans to the big time (sort of) opening for Blind Melon, Alice Donut lived indie music. We know the story of the bands that went international, led by Nirvana, but Freaks in Love is the story of the rest of the scene. Featuring Jello Biafra and the Meat Puppets.
In person: Directors Skizz Cyzyk and David Koslowski, along with members of Alice Donut
Director: Skizz Cyzyk & David Koslowski
Documentary: 100 min.
