Special All-Ages Showing of Dave Grohl's Sound City at City Winery

is offering a special showing of  on Tuesday, May 20.  This acclaimed documentary is directed and produced by the amazing Dave Grohl (my future husband, he just doesn't know it yet - nor does his wife). It's a riveting accurate story of LA’s unsung analog recording studio in the Valley and the artists who made rock history there, featuring appearances by Neil Young, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor, Rick Rubin, Mick Fleetwood, Lars Ulrich, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Josh Homme, Frank Black, Pat Smear, Barry Manilow, Lindsey Buckingham, Lee Ving, Krist Novoselic and Paul McCartney. This movie is so incredible at shining light on how many legendary albums came to be.  I've been in the music business for 25+ years and I learned so much from it.  If you like to listen to the radio and/or appreciate rock music you will LOVE it!

Sound City will be projected onto dual 90-inch screens and be heard on City Winery's state-of-the-art Meyer Sound® system. Tickets are $5, and guests receive 50% off carafes of City Winery house-made wines and $10 flatbreads.  

So let's get this straight...my favorite movie, my favorite venue, my favorite wine...oh, and Dave Grohl...what's not to love?
