Schedule

Jan 27

Mistaken For Strangers

This film is a part of our Sound & Vision series presented in partnership with DRIP (records).

With a performance by NUMBTONGUE

Director: Tom Berninger

Hilarious and touching all at once, Mistaken for Strangers is part rock-doc, part buddy comedy, part emotionally honest portrait of failure and success. A documentary about the indie-rock band The National directed by the lead singer’s drifter brother, the film is an insightful investigation of complicated familial bonds.

NUMBTONGUE is a project of SC native Bobby Hatfield of The SeaWolf Mutiny. Often referred to as “psychedelic pop,” NUMBTONGUE explores sounds from soul to 90s alternative.

Feb 24

Monterey Pop

This film is a part of our Sound & Vision series presented in partnership with DRIP (records).

With a performance by Grace Joyner

Director: D.A. Pennebaker

During the Summer of Love, before Lollapalooza or Woodstock, there was the seminal rock music festival Monterey Pop. Hailed as one of the best rock documentaries of the 1960s, the film features performances by The Who, The Mamas & The Papas, Janis Joplin, and most memorably the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s guitar-burning rendition of “Wild Thing.”

Grace Joyner’s hypnotic songs are reflections on heartbreak and self-assurance. The band has four members: Amber Grace Joyner, Camille Rhoden, Nic Jenkins, and Joe Chang.

Mar 31

Purple Rain

This film is a part of our Sound & Vision series presented in partnership with DRIP (records).

With a performance by Skeleton

Director: Albert Magnoli

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life and life is a whole lot better with Purple Rain. In this mix of myth and biography, Prince stars as The Kid, a young musician from the wrong side of the tracks searching for the song that will change his life.

Skeleton is an apocalypso rhythm-led ride through soaring tunes reminiscent of a memento mori. Led by singer-songwriter Pedro LDV, Skeleton explores mortality and the fragile world around us.
