Summer Music Documentary Series at SF's Balboa Theatre

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, May 13, 2014 11:23am | Post a Comment

Starting June 12th, your Thursday nights are spoken for. San Francisco's historic Balboa Theatre brings you a summer full of exciting music documentaries, each selected for its depth-of-coverage about music crafted by strong, independent artists.

Balboa Theatre's Summer Music Documentary Series opens on Thursday, June 12th at 7:30pm with Don’t Follow Me (I’m Lost), a fly-on-the-wall documentary that does indeed follow Bobby Bare Jr., son of country music legend Bobby Bare, through the sometimes lonely and disconnected turns of life on the road.

From then on, each Thursday night will bring a new film, covering a distinct vista of the global musical landscape. Many of the films are considerable in their scope, tackling the history of entire movements or genres of music. A few are more narrowly focused, giving the viewers a glimpse of one important band or musician. The selection ranges from histories of reggae and punk rock to a portrait of a globe-striding klezmer band.
