Aren’t you glad the weekend’s here?
I Need That Record! (Brought to you by Bazaar Consignments)
Shadowbox Cinema @ 8pm
All Ages; $5
Highly recommend you check this out and support your local vinyl store AND indie cinema house at the same time. From the film’s homepage:
Guerilla filmmaker Brendan Toller unleashes “I NEED THAT RECORD! THE DEATH (OR POSSIBLE SURVIVAL) OF THE INDEPENDENT RECORD STORE,” a documentary feature examining why over 3000 independent record stores have closed across the U.S. in the past decade.
Greedy record labels, media consolidation, homogenized radio, big box stores, Ecommerce, shoddy “stars” pushed by big money, and the digital revolution all pose threats on the very well being of our favorite record stores and the music industry at large. Will these stores die? Will they survive?
Featuring- THURSTON MOORE of Sonic Youth, IAN MACKAYE of Dischord Records Fugazi/Minor Threat, activist/author NOAM CHOMSKY, MIKE WATT of the Minutemen, LENNY KAYE guitarist of the Patti Smith Group, CHRIS FRANTZ of the Talking Heads/Tom Tom Club, guitar composer GLENN BRANCA, PATTERSON HOOD of Drive-By Truckers, PAT CARNEY of the Black Keys, punk author LEGS MCNEIL, rock photographer BOB GRUEN, BP HELIUM guitarist from Of Montreal, and many indie record stores across the U.S. of A!
Check out the trailer after the jump:
Hope your weekend’s off to a good start. Perhaps we can make a few suggestions to liven it up a bit?
Finally, we’re ready to premiere our 2nd music review on the Harding St. label! Check our Music Review page out to find it.
Somehow I forgot to include this on my post yesterday. I’m out of town at the moment, so bear with me, everyone!
