Next month PhilaMOCA will host two new music documentary premieres, Every Everything: The Music, Life & Times of Grant Hart and Sound and Chaos: The Story of BC Studio.
Every Everything, which will be shown on Friday, July 18th, is a completely unfiltered look into the life of Grant Hart, former member of Hüsker Dü. It focuses on the artistic competition he has with his former bandmate, and that final moment when he earns some fame. The film provides great insight into rock & roll and life within the music industry. After the screening there will be cover sets by Mumblr and Hart Attack (members of Howling Fantods, Sound of Failure, Halo of Snakes). Doors open at 7:30 and the show begins at 8. Tickets can be found here.
Sound and Chaos, which will be shown on Monday, July 21st, tells the history behind Martin Bisi’s Brooklyn-based recording studio. Bisi is well-known for recording Herbie Hancock’s hit “Rockit” in the studio, which became popular as the first mainstream DJ song to use the “scratching” technique. Later, the film explains how the iconic studio may now be in trouble due to rising costs of rent. The documentary includes interview with Michael Gira of Swans, Bill Laswell of Material, Grand Mixer JXT and several others. Bisi will be attendance for a live post-screening Q&A as well as a live performance. Doors open at 7:30 and the show begins at 8. Tickets can be found here.
