"TURN DOWN THAT INFERNAL RACKET!" is a phrase parents often bark at their unruly brood. But in the case of Kate Perotti's documentary MOMz Hot ROCKs
, the sonic barrage is coming from the moms themselves. Perotti introduces us to mom bands from around the country with such names as the Mydols, Housewives on Prozac, Placenta you get the idea and song titles like "Eat Your Damn Spaghetti!" Perotti got the idea for the film eight years ago when she was researching women who rock. "I wanted to showcase some of the talent, creativity and humor. Currently, in 2011, there is definitely a large connected international community of mom rockers," she says. How are the sacrifices rocker moms make any different from rocker dads? "Think room service versus diaper service. No need to pour whiskey on your wrist before emptying the bottle. And I would just say, outfits." MOMz Hot ROCKs
screens as part of the Documental Film Series.
