Interviews will include
Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam)

 In 1987, Redd Kross played a show at the Crescent Ballroom in Tacoma that was attended by members of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. They proved that a band could have a heavy guitar attack and still have great pop melodies, an approach that Nirvana would take to world domination.

    I saw Red Kross open up for Melvins here in town a few years back. I had to run to the concert straight after seeing Pearl Jam: Lets Play Two in the cinema - where Jeff Ament sports a Gene Simmons shirt. 

    On my way into the show I spotted a Melvins showposter which was a Nun in Gene Simmons makeup.

    And when I, out of breath, came into the actual concert Red Kross was in the middle of playing a cover of Deuce.

    The man they call my enemy. I've seen his eyes, he looks just like me - A mirror...

We want this to be your film just as much as it is ours. The more people who participate, the more chance we have of getting the story out.
