Louder Than You Think

*Winner* - Audience Award: 24 Beats Per Second – SXSW 2023

An up-close cinematic walkabout through the life of Gary Young, the original (and highly unlikely) drummer of indie rock royalty PAVEMENT. His booze and drugs-fueled antics (on-stage handstands, gifting vegetables to fans) and haphazard production methods (accidentally helping launch the lo-fi aesthetic) were both a driving force of the band’s early rise and the cause of his eventual crash landing. Leaving a wake of joy and/or destruction at every turn, Gary teeters the thin line between free-form self-expression and chaotic self-destruction. Thirty years on with scoliosis, blood clots, and a shriveled liver, Gary is still drumming with no regrets.

Note: no puppets were harmed in the making of this film.

2023, 90 minutes, USA, Directed by Jed I. Rosenberg, Not Rated

  • “A shattering exploration of destiny, creativity, and existence … Essential viewing”

  • “Filthy and delightfully quirky… unique and wide-ranging as its subject’s venerated drum skills.”

    – Mike DeAngelo, THE PLAYLIST
  • “Louder Than You Think is not just a documentary about Pavement drummer Gary Young, but also a devastatingly human look at fate, creativity, and life.”

    – Serena Seghedoni, LOUD AND CLEAR
