The Glamour & The Squalor

Face the Music

Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Beck, and many others from the unparal- leled alternative rock scene of the early ’90s have Marco Collins to thank for their commercial success. Addicted to rock and roll and its lifestyle, he helped usher a new music scene onto Pacific Northwest radio, while he also waged a decade-long battle with addiction and struggled with his sexuality. The documentary, featuring our beautiful city, also showcases archival footage of the bands that shaped a generation. Interviews with the greatest of yesterday and today—Shirley Manson, Ben Gibbard, Carrie Brownstein, and many others—help curate the passionate life of one of the last great rock radio DJs.

Marco Collins and Producers Andy Mininger and Michelle Quisenberry will be in attendance.
