ANGELIKA’S NOTE

This SXSW Official Selection from Director Scott Crawford explores the seminal music magazine from its 1969 launch in Detroit to the untimely death of its publisher Barry Kramer in 1981. Featuring Alice Cooper, Joan Jett, Michael Stipe, Cameron Crowe, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Kirk Hammett, Wayne Kramer, Chad Smith, and rated 96% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, CREEM was heralded by the San Francisco Chronicle as "a sharp, hip piece of rock history." Fifty years after publishing its first issue, "America's Only Rock 'n' Roll Magazine" remains a seditious spirit in music and culture.
