> DESCRIPTION
"This documentary follows the neavy metal scene in Los Angeles, with particular emphasis on the glam metal sub-genre. Spheeris explores the more famous musicians, including Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Mustaine and Paul Stanley. She then explores unknown bands, such as London, Odin and Seduce. The film also features interviews with members of Posion, Tuff, Vixen, and more. Serious issues such as drugs usage, alcohol abuse, and censorship are tackled, as well as vanity issues like celebrity and sales

It has been claimed in recent years...that this film was partially resposible for the death of glam metal and the subsequent rise of Grunge. The suggestion is that kids were so disgusted by the scenes of excess that they decided to look for something else."

DOORS OPEN AT 8:30 / FILM BEGINS AT 9 P.M. (sunset)
