Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will release his highly-anticipated documentary, Sound City, on January 31. The film will screen for one night only at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in downtown Grand Rapids at 8pm. 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 Grohl 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.
