Dave Grohl's Sound City one night only at Landmark's Hillcrest Cinemas
Documentary features Paul McCartney, Mick Fleetwood, Trent Reznor, Tom Petty, and more
Rockumentary fans mark your calendars: the one chance to see Sound City, Dave Grohl's documentary on the fabled Van Nuys recording studio, is Thursday, January 31.
Dave Grohl recorded the album Nevermind with the band Nirvana at Sound City Studios. According to Rolling Stone, the inspiration for the film came after Grohl purchased several items from the studio including the mixing console, a rare analog model, when it closed in 2011.
The soundtrack features Cut Me Some Slack, a new song written by Grohl, Paul McCartney, and former bandmates Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear.
Sound City has its one and only screening at Landmark's Hillcrest Cinemas on January 31 at 7pm. Tickets for this special event are $12.50 and can be purchased here.
