Oscar Winner Audrey Mars Also Played with Mocket, Bratmobile

Another musician won a significant Oscar, but not for anything musical. Audrey Marrs, producer of the Oscar-winning documentary "Inside Job," was keyboardist and bassist for several Pacific Northwest bands associated with the Riot Grrrl movement of the 1990s. Marrs played in the band Mocket and appeared on the Bratmobile's reunion album in 2002, "Girls Get Busy."

Marrs' first film, "No End in Sight," won a special jury prize for
documentaries at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for the Oscar in 2008, five years after she had toured with Bratmobile.

Mocket's label, Up Records, listed the following about Mocket and Marrs:

"Mocket consisted of Matthew Steinke, Audrey Marrs, and others they joined up with for their releases and shows. The others who have been a part of Mocket include Caroline Rue, and Danny Sasaki, who later joined up with Enemymine. Mocket's last album, Pro Forma, featured the pair of Matt and Audrey teamed with Rachel and Radio of The Need. Matt was also involved in Satisfact and eventually continued on with Octant. Audrey was a member of Bratmobile for a few years and played keyboards on a Common Rider album, as well as being a part of Gene Defcon's band.
