Tune in. Drop out. Get loud with Morrison Hotel Gallery and CREEM Magazine, as we join together to bring you an exclusive advanced screening of CREEM: America’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll Magazine on Friday, August 7th. Save the date and CLICK HERE to grab your tickets to the world premiere of the highly-anticipated documentary which rips back the curtain on the legendary rock rag's wild and disruptive newsroom: a dysfunctional band of unruly outsiders who weren’t all that different from the artists they covered.
Capturing the messy upheaval of the '70s just as rock was re-inventing itself, the film 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 its most famous alum and genius clown prince, Lester Bangs, a year later. Fifty years after publishing its first issue, "America's Only Rock 'n' Roll Magazine" remains a seditious spirit in music and culture.
