Sound City Special Event Film Screening at SXSW at Alamo Drafthouse Ritz Tonight

The documentary, Sound City directed by Dave Grohl, screened during SXSW’s  Special Events category that offers “unusual, unexpected and unique film event one-offs.” One of my absolute favorite music related films during the festival, I wholeheartedly endorse getting to the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz to view this film on the big screen.

There are so many interviews with famous and loved musicians, as well as producers, who share their memories and insight into the recording studio located in Van Nuys, California. It is a great story of a place that has made history and even with the making of the documentary, even more music history was created. I was in music heaven during the entire 108 minutes of the film.

By the time Paul McCartney arrives at the studio to record with Dave Grohl, I had totally forgotton that I was sitting in a theater watching this film instead of having a special seat in the studio to watch and listen to these greats make music together. The cinematography by Kenny Stoff is amazing, as this film does give the viewer the feel of being present in the studio and other places the camera was able to capture the historic moments.
