24 September 2014

Scarred But Smarter gives an in-depth look into the life and times of Atlanta's indie rock luminaries Drivin' N' Cryin', a band now celebrating its 30th year. Check out an exclusive video preview to get a taste of what's to come.

Eric Von Haessler’s documentary Scarred But Smarter tells the tale of a band that, while under the radar by the average person’s standards, have nonetheless remained vital and influential over the course of its now 30-year tenure: the Atlanta indie rock outfit Drivin’ N’ Cryin’. Few bands last as long as this trio, comprised of singer/songwriter Kevn Kinney, guitarist Tim Nielsenand, and drummer Paul Lenz; that the group has remained headstrong is but one of many reasons why a film about its musical journey is so fascinating a document.
Check out an exclusive preview of the film below:

While Scarred But Smarter will see its wide release on November 4th, you can order it now directly from the film’s website.
