- This is your backstage pass to the legendary Detroit rock music scene of the late 60’s.
The Grande Ballroom was home to an eminent change in America’s music culture. It pumped a daring and gritty style of rock and roll for crowds who worked hard and played hard.Launching Michigan bands such as MC5, Alice Cooper and the Stooges, the Grande was also a hot ticket for the greats, including Led Zeppelin, B.B. King, Janis Joplin and Pink Floyd.
- Louder Than Love is both a historical essay and a love letter.
- It’s the story of promoter Russ Gibbs and his ambitious vision to define Detroit through music.And not just for the local scene – but for the world-stage.
Richly filled with images and captivating interviews with everyone from rock legends to groupies, this film celebrates a striking and influential moment in music history.
It’s already getting some great reviews and is one of the more highly anticipated films of this festival
“Arguably even more enticing is ”Kick Out The Jams”, a series of documentaries on Detroit, including Louder Than Love (pictured), about the history of the Grande Ballroom, which played host to The MC5, The Stooge, Alice Cooper and the like.”
