Friday, August 25 - Thursday, September 14, 2023

Director CB Stockfleth, producer Lance Bangs & musician Robert Schneider in person for Q&A on Friday, August 25 at 7:20 p.m. and on Saturday, August 26 at 7:20 p.m.  Each Q&A will feature an acoustic performance by Robert Schneider.


In the 1990s, cheap rent and big houses in Athens, GA helped incubate bands Olivia Tremor Control, Neutral Milk Hotel, Elf Power, and many more. This psychedelic rock music, often created by non-musicians and recorded on creaky 4-tracks, developed a loyal following who shared cassettes and 45s and packed into raucous live shows. Featuring pioneers Robert Schneider and Jeff Mangum, performances, and video clips, this brisk-paced rock doc charts the genesis of that uber-creative, DIY music scene and captures its electricity and joy.


Due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, Busy Philipps will no longer be moderating the Q&A on August 26
