I Need That Record: The Death (Or Possible Survival) of the Independent Record Store

7PM and 9:30 PM
Admission: $5

Location: 600 4th St, West Sacramento (that's the corner of 4th & F in West Sac - parking lot is right off of F Street between 4th & 5th).

A documentary feature examining why over 3000 independent record stores have closed across the U.S. in the past decade.

Greedy record labels, media consolidation, homogenized radio, big box stores, Ecommerce, shoddy "stars" pushed by big money, and the digital revolution all pose threats on the very well being of our favorite record stores. Will these stores die? Will they survive?

Featuring Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) Ian Mackaye (Dischord Records and Fugazi/Minor Threat) activist/author Noam Chomsky, Mike Watt (Minutemen), Chris Frantz (Talking Heads/Tom Tom Club), Lenny Kaye (guitarist, the Patti Smith Group), guitar composer Glenn Branca, Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers), Pat Carney (The Black Keys), punk author Legs McNeil, rock photographer Bob Gruen, and many many indie record stores across the U.S. of A!

Dennis Yudt (A.K.A. The Master Bastard) and another Dennis, owner of Esoteric Records, will be speaking following the 7:00 PM screening.

If the 7 PM is running late, the 9:30 PM will start a bit later.
