Mom! You're Embarrassing Me!

By Libby Molyneaux

"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.

ZagrebDox 2011 hosts MOMz Hot ROCKs

Many thanks to the amazing town and staff of the 2011 ZagrebDox International Documentary Film Festival held last week, February 26th-March 6th in Croatia. An incredible mélange of North, South, East and West. The people are overwhelmingly gracious and nice, the food and drink simply wonderful. Thank you again for hosting MOMz Hot ROCKs as part of the Musical Globe Programme. I was one of only two Americans to attend, a true honor and memorable screening. The best part was seeing the translation to Hrvatski jezik.
