Rocks Off has been tracking the film since it was announced months back, and told you all about the Paul McCartney and Nirvana collaboration that played the 12-12-12 Sandy Benefit show.
The Sound City Players, a supergroup made up of Grohl, Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, John Fogerty and members of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Cheap Trick, Fear, and Rage Against the Machine are set to perform together coming up soon at the Sundance Film Festival and a one-off show in Los Angeles.
No word yet on this amazing casserole of musicians touring the country or coming to SXSW, but Grohl is SXSW Music's keynote speaker this year, so let's just assume you'll see some grainy photos here on Rocks Off in the next two months.
After Sound City runs for one day in theaters, it will be available on cable, satellite, online, hotel and airline on-demand operators the following day.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
