San Diego music documentary to be released in October

‘It's Gonna Blow’ will screen at the Victory Theater

By Jeff Terich
Pitchfork Pitchfork is one of the bands featured in the documentary It’s Gonna Blow.

The documentary It’s Gonna Blow: San Diego’s Music Underground 1986-1996 is finished and ready to be screened. On Thursday, Oct. 9, the film will have its first showing at the Victory Theater in Grant Hill.

This is just the first of many screenings of the film to come, but director Bill Perrine says that he felt strongly about hosting the first screening at the historic theater (2558 Imperial Ave.), which opened in 1913.

“I love the Victory Theater because it’s got a history that goes back 100 years and because it seems to be run by weirdos for weirdos,” Perrine says in an email. “It’s got character, so I jumped at the chance to do something there. We’ll have screenings at other venues in town, as well, but I wanted to start out scrappy. We’ll keep it loose.”

In addition to San Diego, Perrine says the film will screen in other cities, like New York and Portland, but he was surprised to learn that there was interest in hosting it in other, unexpected cities—including Montreal, Barcelona, Nashville and Detroit.

“I’m open to taking the film wherever it needs to go,” he says.

As the title indicates, the film highlights notable bands that were active between 1986 and 1996, including Pitchfork, Tanner, Crash Worship, The Locust and blink-182. Perrine says he filled up an 8-terabyte hard drive with raw material while working on the 85-minute film.

He says he has quite a few favorite moments:

“There are parts of the film that make me giggle every time I see them, even after watching them hundreds of times. But I’m a total fucking weirdo, so it will be interesting to see how other people react.”
