Free Screening of "A Band Called Death" Documentary in Los Angeles June 20

Posted by Amoebite, June 5, 2013 01:37pm | Post a Comment

A Band Called Death posterWe are proud to present a free advance screening of a new rock documentary, A Band Called Death, at The Cinefamily in Los Angeles on June 20! The documentary, released by Drafthouse Films and hitting theaters nationwide on June 28, is 42 years in the making.

In Detroit, 1971, three teenage brothers, Bobby, Dannis and David Hackney, dabbled in playing funk music, but after attending an Alice Cooper performance, they transformed into an entirely different band...a band called Death. Their sound was tight, compelling and formidably unique, but they were rejected by record companies until eventually someone reached out to the group with an offer...if they agreed to change their name. They declined. Years later the band sold their instruments and disbanded, with their recordings collecting dust in an attic. Then in 2008, their songs were released online, unbeknownst to the band, and fans went crazy for it.  This is one of the most unlikely true stories you’ll ever hear, and one of the greatest triumphs in rock history.

Death albums have been picked by numerous bands in our What's In My Bag? series. See what the Crystal Antlers and Steve Agee (from The Sarah Silverman Program) said about Death in their videos. 

To attend the advance screening at Cinefamily, RSVP here. You may RSVP for up to 2 tickets. Please note that RSVP does NOT guarantee entry, as seating is available on a first come, first served basis. Please arrive early to secure your seats.
