Everything You Need to Know About the Fargo Rock Scene in the ’90s?

The Red River Runs Through It, a documentary film on the Fargo music scene of the 1990s is in the works and looking for funding through and Indigogo page  located here. From the page:

It’s cold in the middle of nowhere.

A faceless suburb to nothing in the third least populated State.

A city that created Godheadsilo, Hammerhead, Seawhores, Orange 17, John Smith, Bombshell, Bossk, to name a few.  Creativity is a mainstay when it’s -30 degrees Fahrenheit for an entire month.

A city that was privilege for Jon Spencer, Unwound, Fugazi, Karp, Arm, Modest Mouse, Sleater Kinney, Low, White Stripes, Melvins, Murder City Devils, Mule, Jesus Lizard and so, so many more.

A city similar to Austin, Lawrence, Olympia, Omaha, but stuck in its place, a lonesome outpost into or away from the Pacific Northwest, and just for a while, it shined…

…Fargo, North Dakota.

For three decades Fargo housed a scene, the scene, bar none in any US city.  The people are true, one for all and all for one. And the people, like the prairie, will take a little piece of your soul.
