DOC NIGHTS: FREAKSCENE THE STORY OF DINOSAUR JR
For this month's Doc Nights we have FREAKSCENE – THE STORY OF DINOSAUR JR in partnership with Doc’N Roll. The feature length film explores the rough and emotional story of the band that grandfathered the American East Coast indie-rock scene - Dinosaur Jr. Named after their ’88 debut single ‘Freak Scene’, filmmaker Philipp Reichenheim canned some exclusive interviews with the band members to share the nitty gritty of those early days.
Grab your ticket and come join us on Thursday, December 2 at 7PM. See you there!

Synopsis: FREAKSCENE - THE STORY OF DINOSAUR JR. is an homage to one of the most influential bands on the American East Coast, which inspired the rock scene, including Nirvana and Sonic Youth, in the 1990s. Their style and unmistakable sound, later referred to as "Grunge", laid the foundation for the entire "Slacker" culture of Generation X. It is also the story of the eloquent and eccentric guitarist and bandleader J. Mascis, the bassist Lou Barlow and drummer Murph, and a band that insanely does not talk to each other. Communication takes place exclusively through music, although filmmaker Philipp Reichenheim nevertheless manages to make the closed and shy icons speak. An emotional, tragically funny and sometimes noisy rollercoaster ride by a dysfunctional family, Dinosaur Jr.
