Tacoma’s indie bands get showcased by Tacoma filmmakers at “Track 01,” a new film event at The Grand Cinema on June 1 and June 2. Nine new music videos of Tacoma bands will be combined with filmmaker and musician question-and-answer sessions.

Video premieres include a mini-documentary of kiddie rock band Pig Snout by director Kris Crews, “Home” by rapper Bruce Leroy made by directors Brian Robinson and Silong Chhun, and “Something New” by alt-pop singer-songwriter DJ Phinisey and director Peter Berkley.
Other featured musicians include Trees &Timber, Ben Von Wildenhaus, TNT with Sir Mix-A-Lot, Fly Moon Royalty, Mirrorgloss and Justin Huertas. Filmmakers include Laura Marshall, Bryan Campbell and Jack Saffle.
