Tacoma rock band documentary to premiere at SIFF

A documentary film about the Tacoma rock band Girl Trouble will have its world premiere this month at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF).

Strictly Sacred: The Story of Girl Trouble features archival footage, memorabilia, and audio recordings that chronicle the three-decade history of a rock band defined by its uncompromising “Do-It-Yourself” (DIY) aesthetic. Director Isaac Olsen includes interviews with Neko Case, Calvin Johnson, and Art Chantry, as well as Girl Trouble band members Kurt P. Kendall, Kahuna, Bon Von Wheelie, and Dale Phillips.

The 95-minute film will screen on Mon., May 26, at 5 p.m. at SIFF Cinema Uptown, located at 511 Queen Anne Ave. N., in Seattle, and on Tues., May 27, at 8:30 p.m. at IKEA Performing Arts Center, located at 400 S. 2nd St., in Renton. More information is available online here and here.
