commune returns to House of Vans this December with a free screening of L7: Pretend We're Dead. The newly released documentary takes us on a all-access journey into the 1990's grunge movement that the world by storm and the band that help define it as the sound of a generation.
Culled from over 100 hours of vintage home movies taken by the band, never-before-seen performance footage, and candid interviews, L7: Pretend We're Dead is an engrossing time capsule told from the perspective of L7, these true insiders who brought their signature blend of grunge punk to the masses.
The screening will be hosted in the 100-seat cinema space; the event is free with booking required. A very limited number of walk in tickets will be available on the day, on a first come, first served basis.
Chronicling the early days of the band's formation in 1985 to their height as the 'queens of grunge' the film takes a roller coaster ride through L7's triumphs and failures, a classic tale of rags to riches to rags. Featuring: Joan Jett, Shirley Manson, Exene, Brody Dalle, Louise Post, Allison Robertson, Allison Wolfe, CSS, Butch Vig, Krist Novosleic and more.
