My pal Skizz's movie, Freaks in Love, plays at the Maryland Film Festival on May 7, 2011 at 10:00 PM at the historic Charles Theater.
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.
Documentary: 100 min.
