Karp Lives

The long awaited feature documentary on the band Kill All Redneck Pricks! An epic story of the rise and fall of the most hormonally overloaded band of punk-metal geeks to ever emerge from the mossy woods of the Pacific Northwest. KARP Lives takes you from the high school corridors and soggy chicken coops of Tumwater, WA to the dizzying heights of punk rock stardom only to make a shockingly painful crash landing. The players are real and the stakes are life, death and the inspired dreams of youth. King Buzzo, Justin Trosper, Kathleen Hanna, Kimya Dawson and Calvin Johnson are just a few of the legion of friends and heroes that narrate the life, death and comic brutality of KARP. This is a vital story of the Pacific Northwest, loud music, and fragile humanity. Director William Badgley in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
