CREEM: AMERICA'S ONLY ROCK 'N' ROLL MAGAZINE

BOY HOWDY! THE STORY OF CREEM MAGAZINE
United States | 2019 | Scott Crawford

CREEM: AMERICA'S ONLY ROCK 'N' ROLL MAGAZINE film still

Founded in post-riot 1969 Detroit, CREEM magazine soon rose from upstart underground rag to rock music powerhouse. More down and dirty than the mossy Rolling Stone, the impudent CREEM covered 1970s sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll with a roadie or groupie's relish, giving early ink to punk, metal, and new wave bands and a megaphone to legendary music critic Lester Bangs. With Alice Cooper, Cameron Crowe, Michael Stipe, et al. "A brief, careening survey through the publication's two-decade life and times, filled with colorful personalities and commentary. Vintage rock fans will be in (cough) high heaven." –Variety. Cleveland premiere. 73 min.

CREEM: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine, a Cinematheque streaming exclusive, can be watched online from 8/7 thru 8/27 via the link below. (Doing so supports the Cinematheque.) Screening fee is $9.99, and after opening the film, you have 72 hours to watch it.
