Attention Analog Geeks — “Sound City” Doc At Cable Car

sound city “Sound City” — the tale of the legendary Van Nuys recording studio — looks to be on the schedule for Tuesday and Thursday nights. Director Dave Grohl got everyone on board. Musicians and producers interviewed here include; Rick Rubin, Trent Reznor, Josh Homme (who apparently wants to be called Joshua now . . . all growed up I suppose), Barry Manilow, Tom Petty, Frank Black, Rivers Cuomo, and tons more. Rolling Stone loved it,

Straight out of a roofraising debut at Sundance 2013 comes Dave Grohl’s exhilarating documentary about what makes life worth living. Hold up. I know Grohl’s film is actually a look at Sound City (1969 – 2011), a studio buried in a corner of Van Nuys, California, as it moves from legend to the analog boneyard. But the Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer is up to something more than a nostalgia trip. He wants to celebrate the nondigital sweat that goes into making music.

Grohl moved the old Neve console into his own studio, whence the recent amazing track “Cut Me Some Slack” with McCartney, Novoselic and Smear.

9pm, Tuesday and Thursday, February 5 and 7, Cable Car Cinema, 204 South Main Street, 272.3970
