Before the release of her fourth album The Chronicles of Marmia back in March, Stern hit up the SXSW festival. Luckily, MTV’s Weird Vibes were there to film it, producing the short documentary ‘This Is Marnie Stern’.

If you like punk, weed, and lo-fi rock 'n' roll then you'll probably love Colleen Green. If you don't like all of those things, you'll probably still love Colleen Green.
