Get introduced to new musical spaces and performers in this Seattle-based documentary. Alaia D’Alessandro follows three musicians (CarLarans, Julie-C and Reese Tanimura) to underground spots, from autobody shops to venues, to capture performances and conversations with local artists and space owners. Interviews about artist sustainability, creative collaboration, and relationships between local music and newcomers (such as tech workers) to Seattle are interspersed with performances from bands (Bearaxe, Kung Foo Grip, Rachael’s Children, more). Parallel to the economic and infrastructural changes in Seattle, find out what transformations are going on in our city’s musical communities.

If you’re in the Seattle music scene, you probably know someone in this film. EXCITING! Whether you know someone in the film or not, you’re going to to be introduced to new performers and spaces in Seattle you don’t know. ALSO EXCITING!
