Any rock n’ roll fans out there? The Palace Danbury has a treat for you! Direct from the Sundance Film Festival, the movie that brought the audience to it’s collective feet, a must see film, is David Grohl’s SOUND CITY.
Deep in the San Fernando Valley was rock n' roll's best kept secret: Sound City. America's greatest unsung recording studio housed a one-of-a-kind console, and as its legend grew, seminal bands and artists all came out to put magic to tape.
Directed by Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) the film features interviews and performances from the iconic musicians who recorded some of rock’s greatest albums at the studio-- Neil Young, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, Lars Ulrich, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Josh Homme, Barry Manilow, Lindsey Buckingham, Krist Novoselic and Paul McCartney.
Sound City doesn’t just tell the story of this real-life rock ’n’ roll shrine, Grohl gathers some of rock's biggest artists to collaborate on a new album using Sound City's legendary analog console.
NPR describes the film as “A celebration of just how unbelievably awesome it is to make rock music for a living.”
SOUND CITY will be screened at The Palace Danbury on Saturday, March 2 at 8:00 PM. Tickets cost $12 in advance and $15 the day of the show. They can be ordered online at www.thepalacedanbury.com, on the phone by calling 203 794-9944, or purchased at the door starting one hour before showtime.
