I NEED THAT RECORD



THURSDAY APRIL 29th

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 "starts" 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 the Drive-By Truckers, Pat Carney of the Black Keys, punk author Legs McNeil, rock photographer Bob Gruen, BP Helim and many indie record stores across the US of A. Animations by Matt Newman.

Plays with rockin' shorts (stay tuned for details)
