Overview

Despite being praised by the likes of Rolling Stone and the Village Voice in the 1970s and '80s, Pittsburgh musician Joe Grushecky and his band, the Iron City Houserockers, never achieved the success of their fellow heartland contemporary (and personal friend) Bruce Springsteen. This documentary from filmmakers Steve Caniff and Jim Justice profiles Grushecky's decades-long struggle to keep on rocking despite musical obscurity -- and his day job as a special-ed teacher. ~ Sandra Bencic
