BOY HOWDY! THE STORY OF CREEM MAGAZINE

Introduction by Dave Nuttycombe; Q&A with filmmaker Scott Crawford, moderated by Neal Augenstein, WTOP

Washington, DC-area premiere!

Capturing the messy upheaval of the '70s just as rock was re-inventing itself, this documentary explores Creem Magazine's humble beginnings in post-riot Detroit, follows its upward trajectory from underground paper to national powerhouse, then bears witness to its imminent demise following the tragic and untimely deaths of its visionary publisher, Barry Kramer, and, one year later, its most famous alum and genius clown prince, Lester Bangs. Fifty years after publishing its first issue, "America's Only Rock 'n' Roll Magazine" remains a seditious spirit in music and culture. The film features rare archival footage and contemporary interviews with the magazine's surviving contributors, and also its avid readers, including Joan Jett, Michael Stipe, Jeff Ament, Thurston Moore and Kirk Hammett, plus native Michiganders Jeff Daniels, Ted Nugent, Alice Cooper and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. DIR/SCR Scott Crawford; SCR/PROD Jaan Uhelszki; PROD J.J. Kramer. U.S., 2019, color, 74 min. NOT RATED
