Northwest Passage: The Birth of Portland's DIY Culture

Lovingly assembled by Portland renaissance man Mike Lastra, Northwest Passage will fill most of the remaining potholes in your lexicon of Portland's music scene of yore. By focusing specifically on the dynamic burgeoning DIY scene between '78 and '83, Northwest Passage succeeds where other punkumentaries have failed. With awesome footage of tons of bands (Poison Idea, Sadonation, The Wipers, The Neo Boys, Lastra's own Smegma, and Fred Cole's The Rats) in the throes of creativity fever, the film is as entertaining as it is educational.
