Smart Studios, located in Madison, Wisconsin and established in 1983 by Butch Vig and Steve Marker, was a crucial recording destination (and home) for noisy independent bands in the 80's & 90's.  Legions of bands recorded there over the years -- Killdozer, Tad, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, L7, Archers of Loaf, Poster Children, Laughing Hyenas, Garbage, and SO many more. The studio and the bands that recorded there had a major impact on the music scene in the Midwest, as well as the alternative music scene in the U.S. in the '80s and '90s.

A feature length film about the legendary and influential studio directed by Wendy Schneider and executive produced by Butch Vig, tells the fascinating history of Smart Studios through archival footage and interviews with artists who recorded there including Shirley Manson, Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, Donita Sparks, Chris Walla and Dave Grohl.

The Smart Studios Story premiered at South By Southwest to rave reviews.  The documentary was later screened in just a handful of cities in the spring, but now a much larger screening tour has been announced for music fans nationwide which includes an October 7th screening at El Club in Detroit (info here).

View the screening itinerary for The Smart Studios Story below and for more info visit the film's website here.
