As part of PAMM Free Community Night, join us for the Miami premiere of the feature documentary film "Kate Nash: Underestimate the Girl" directed by Amy Goldstein and produced by Anouchka van Riel. Following the screening, join the filmmaker and producer for a conversation moderated by Sweat Records' Lolo Reskin and a Q&A with the audience. Watch the trailer for the film here.
In "Kate Nash: Underestimate the Girl," a platinum-selling pop dissident turns her back on the music business and learns how to survive as a punk renegade, TV wrestling queen, and DIY leader of an all-girl band. This high-energy, female-centered rock odyssey reveals the treacherous line that today's artists must walk to survive while making art on their own terms in the modern digital economy.
Enjoy happy hour on the terrace with an all-vinyl DJ set by Lagrimas de Oro before the conversation and film.
