L7 Documentary Los Angeles Screening – Band to Attend for Q&A – Get Tickets for L.A.
On Saturday (9/16), the documentary, L7: Pretend We’re Dead, will show in Los Angeles at The Regent in downtown L.A. at 1:00PM. The band will be there for a Q&A with the audience following the screening.
Fierce, feminist pioneers of American grunge punk, the L7: Pretend We’re Dead documentary was directed by award-winning filmmaker Sarah Price (American Movie, The Yes Men, Summercamp).
Offering particularly revelatory insight into the band’s 16-year career and eventual dissolution in 2001, the film features exclusive interviews with Exene Cervenka (X), Krist Novoselic (Nirvana), Shirley Manson (Garbage), Louise Post (Veruca Salt), Joan Jett and more.
L7: Pretend We’re Dead is a culmination of the band’s re-ignited enthusiasm fueled by their fans’ outpouring of encouragement and support on social media when the band hinted at the idea of a documentary in early 2015. Culled from over 100 hours of unearthed vintage home movies taken by the band, never before seen performance footage, and candid interviews, L7: Pretend We’re Dead chronicles the band’s triumphs and failures. It takes viewers on an all access journey into the 1990’s grunge movement that took the world by storm. Charged with lyrics that had political bite and humor which proved irresistible to the disenfranchised, the marginalized, and the punk, they helped define grunge as the genre of a generation.
