Dave Grohl and Billy Corgan Featured in Kickstarter Campaign for Studio Documentary
Dave Grohl, Billy Corgan and Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson are featured among the familiar faces of "The Smart Studios Story" documentary trailer, a new film dedicated to the iconic studios.

The trailer itself is the part of the Kickstarter campaign aiming to fund the documentary by reaching a $120,000 goal. The $30,000 mark is about to get crossed as we speak (March 10) with 20 days left to go.

"If you've ever been touched by the music of Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, L7, Killdozer, Die Kreuzen, Tar Babies, Against Me!, Death Cab for Cutie, etc. you've been touched by the music created at Smart Studios, the legendary Midwestern recording facility owned by Butch Vig and Steve Marker," the campaign reads. "The music and the scene all collided in a two-story brick building sitting virtually unnoticed on the east side of Madison, Wisconsin."

Some of the questions the movie's planning to answer are as follows - "How did Nirvana end up in Madison, WI? How did they find Butch Vig? Could the noise-rock band Killdozer be the Midwest's link to the biggest genre shift in rock music history?"

You can check out more details about the film or make a donation here.
