Even Hell Has Its Heroes: Earth

Sunday 12 November, 7.30pm

Doc'n Roll Hastings Film Festival Presents:

Pivotal Seattle Grunge band Earth share their moving story, including living with Kurt Cobain and heroin addiction.

Since 1989, the slowest metal band on the planet has conjured some of music’s most striking tectonic changes. Not only did the band Earth create a glacially paced subgenre of metal and play a pivotal role in the popularisation of grunge, but visionary leader Dylan Carlson also did it while battling small-town boredom, heroin addiction, and the tragic death of his roommate and best friend, Kurt Cobain.
