The buzz is officially out (thank you to blogs Switchblade Comb and City Pages Gimme Noise) and there’s reason for it: this is the very FIRST documentary about our beloved and infamous local band to ever come out! Making its MN PREMIERE at the Woman’s Club Theater (Loring Park) on Weds. May 4th, 2011, we here at Sound Unseen are working hard to make this event very special indeed.
We got word from director Gorman Bechard last night that a lot of people, whom were interviewed and make an appearance in the film, are flying into Minneapolis just for this momentous event from all over the country!
Details are being finalized regarding the after-party at 7th St. Entry with a TBA special performance (thanks to our awesome co-presenters First Avenue).
Lastly, to answer the main question we’ve been asked: “When will tickets be available? And where do I purchase?” The answer is: We hope to have an online ticketing link up by this FRIDAY, MARCH 11th. Tickets will become available for advance purchase right here under our “Buy Ticket” link. In addition, since we anticipate this screening to sell out — we are aiming to release a limited amount to our sponsored TBA ticket outlet.
Once tickets do become available, you’ll want to buy them quickly and spread the word to have your friends (and their friends) to do the same! This is a not-to-be-missed special event brought to you by your loyal film + music friends at Sound Unseen, 89.3 The Current and First Avenue.
