avatar for Hype!


deadCenter is STOKED to present a free outdoor screening of the 20th anniversary of Hype!

Hype! is a legendary rock documentary from director Doug Pray that focuses on the explosion of grunge music that took place in the Pacific Northwest during the early 1990s. The film uses insider interviews and rare concert footage to trace the steps of grunge, from its subversive inception in neighborhood basements, to its explosion as a global pop culture phenomenon.

While the film features the most popular bands of the movement -- namely Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Soundgarden -- it also presents lesser-known acts such as the Melvins, Mudhoney and Seaweed.
