The Roxie Theater and Noise Pop present the San Francisco premiere of The Beat Is TheBeat Is The Law Pulp Roxie San Francisco Law – Fanfare For The Common People at the Roxie Theater, this Thursday, September 29th.

Picture it...Glastonbury Festival, 1995. The Stone Roses pull out of their headline set after a mountain bike accident and Rod Stewart is unavailable. Last minute replacements Pulp take to the stage to face 80,000 people. They deliver a set regarded as one of the best in the festival’s history, climaxing with the era-defining song, "Common People." In the process, they catapult themselves to the forefront of the Britpop movement – an achievement that 10 years earlier seemed like an impossible dream.

Made with the full co-operation of the band, The Beat Is The Law – Fanfare For The Common People (Dir. Eve Wood, 2010, Digital, 90 min.), brings together original interviews, performances, promos, newly unearthed live footage, and home videos to tell the story of Pulp and their contemporaries’ journey from the darkest industrial depths of the Steel City to the pinnacle of pop via the consciousness-raising techno/house of  Warp Records. Featuring original interviews with Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker, Russell Senior, Candida Doyle, and Nick Banks plus Richard Hawley (Longpigs), Mark Brydon (Chakk/FON/Moloko), Rob Gordon (FON/WARP), Adi Newton (ClockDVA) and many more, The Beat Is The Law is a deep-fried feature documentary from the creators of the acclaimed Made In Sheffield
