Product Description

An in-depth account of one of the most important cultural epicenters in Pacific Northwest history, X-RAY VISIONS tells the story of Portland's X-Ray Cafe, a unique, all-ages nightclub that hosted bands like Green Day, Crash Worship, Nation of Ulysses, Neurosis, Smegma, Poison Idea, Everclear, and virtually every touring act from 1989 to 1994. The X-Ray put Portland on the map as THE epicenter for alternative arts and weird culture. With its "anything goes" aesthetic, a punk band, a circus act, toddlers banging on things, language classes, 25 cent advice sessions, and a spanking evangelist might appear on a single night's bill.


"Ellis' film, loaded with interviews and performance clips, is a spirited valentine to the craziness and glory of days gone by and to the many who called the X-Ray home." --Northwest Film Center

"Accepting of almost all cultural expression or character type that wasn't mean-spirited, the X-Ray championed a kind of inspired amateurism and a participatory environment that's unlikely to be equaled for audacity or fun. In the words of one former regular, 'the X-Ray was the cat's potato.' And so is this film." --The Oregonian

"The film never attempts the impossible and pointless task of overall analysis. There is no agenda beyond acknowledging that something remarkable happened in and around the X-Ray during the early '90s." --Portland Mercury
