Music + Film: Sound City


mvyradio is proud to be a sponsor of this weekend's event at the Martha's Vineyard Film Center.

"Film + Music" is a 3 day festival of music films, with interludes of live performances.  For a full schedule, plus tickets, visit the Film Center's site.

"Sound City" follows Dave Grohl (of Nirvana and Foo Fighters fame), as he recounts the story of the legendary "Sound City Studios" where great albums from Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Neil Young and Nirvana were made.  Grohl purchases the SCS sound board and transplants it to his own home studio, where he recorded a full album with a host of superstars.

See it Friday night at 9:30pm.

Deep in the San Fernando Valley, amidst rows of dilapidated warehouses, 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 such as Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty, Metallica and Nirvana all came out to put magic to tape. Directed by Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) and featuring interviews and performances from the iconic musicians who recorded some of rock’s greatest albums at the studio, Sound City doesn’t just tell the story of this real-life rock ‘n’ roll shrine, it celebrates the human element of music as Grohl gathers some of rock’s biggest artists to collaborate on a new album. Using Sound City’s legendary analog console, together these artists continue to create musical miracles in a digital world.
