Louder Than Love: The Grande Ballroom Story
While the West Coast was grooving to the sounds of the “Summer of Love” in 1967, Detroit was pumping out a hard-driving, gritty, raw sound. At the epicenter of this seminal music scene stood the Grande Ballroom, Detroit’s original rock and roll palace. In the late 1960s, the Grande helped to break some of America’s most iconic rock bands including MC5, Iggy and the Stooges, and others. Using a Sony 24P HDCAM, D’Annunzio amassed more than 60 hours of interviews with artists and other insiders from The Grande’s heyday. He also collected over 500 never-before-seen archival photos–taken by professional photographers and fans–of performers. Part of the Frequency Film Festival. 800-838-3006.
