SF DocFest, San Francisco's annual festival of documentary cinema, celebrates its 13th year of being "the film festival that provides a manageable amount of the truth" June 5th - 19th. The two week-long event brings the weird and wonderful aspects of real life to the big screen with showings at Roxie Theater in SF and the Oakland School for the Arts Black Box Theater.
Amoeba Music is proud to be part of the festivities this year by co-presenting the West Coast Premiere of Led Zeppelin Played Here. Directed by Jeff Krulik (Heavy Metal Parking Lot), this documentary takes a look at the epic and possibly mythical 1969 performance Led Zeppelin gave in the gym of the Wheaton Youth Center in front of 50 confused teenagers. Krulik tracks down just about everyone who might have been there that Monday night, which also happened to be the evening of Richard Nixon's Presidential Inauguration.
Catch Led Zeppelin Played Here at Oakland School for the Arts on June 8th at 5pm or at Roxy Theater in SF on June 14th at 9pm. Get your tickets HERE!
