Overview

The founding father of psychedelic music is profiled in director Keven McAlester's intimate look at the life and career of legendary 13th Floor Elevators frontman Roger Kynard "Roky" Erickson. His voice was powerful enough to start a musical revolution, but the noise in his head would ultimately prove too overwhelming to ignore.
