Don’t Knock The Rock film fest continues this Thursday with two must see documentaries. The Case Of the Three Sided Dream tells the story of Rahsaan Roland Kirk a blind jazz musician whose unique style has influenced artists from The Animals to Sonic Youth to Radiohead.
“You simply hold your guitar and you turn it up as loud as you can and you try not to look at the audience”. So describes The Flaming Lips Wayne Coyne on the Shoe Gaze movement. “Beautiful Noise” tells the story of how Cocteau Twins, The Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine influenced generations of bands.
After you’ve gotten your fill of Jazz and loud rock go to the Annenberg Museum of Photography for a knockout country bill from Shelby Lynne and Jamestown Revival. Also make sure to get there early to see the amazing photographs focusing on country music.
It’s going to be a good weekend.
