Trailer for The Gits Documentary

Movie Preview: The Gits

On July 7, 1993, the lead singer of an up-and-coming Seattle blues-punk band, Mia Zapata was brutally murdered. She was only 27 years old. Her death sent a huge shock wave throughout Seattle, the epicenter of the alternative music movement at the time.

A new documentary, titled The Gits after Mia's band, follows the rise of the enigmatic performer on the brink of stardom, and the chilling and senseless circumstances of her death (the man who murdered her was just found, nearly 10 years later). Folks who have seen this documentary say it's a heartfelt tribute to what could have been, and is a reminder of how strikingly absent a female voice like Mia's is from today's music.

If you're at all fascinated by the grunge music scene in Seattle or what it meant to be a girl rocker at the time, you'll probably be way into this. You can find listings for local showings of the movie here and you can find information about the DVD here.
