Northwest Tracking: BACK THE WAY WE CAME – locally-produced doc on The Prids!


In 1994, two unloved teenagers, David Frederickson and Mistina La Fave, met in St. Joseph, Missouri. Their common understanding of Manchester post-punk and broken hearts seared their hearts together. They married and divorced, but determined to maintain their friendship, continued with their band, The Prids. They moved to Portland in 2000, since then releasing ten albums, touring nationally, starting their own record label, and surviving a van accident. BACK THE WAY WE CAME moves through time fluidly, focusing on their tour for their third album Chronosynclastic. Rather than chronicling hotel room antics and sniffing the backstage graffiti, BACK THE WAY WE CAME is an exploration of the sometimes painful, familial elements which keep a band moving. (77 mins.)

Director Sean Strauss will be in attendance.


BACK THE WAY WE CAME screens Thursday, January 29 at 7pmin our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum) as part of our ongoing Northwest Tracking series.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
