A festival favorite! Set among dilapidated strip malls and industrial parks, Sound Citywas a shabby recording studio with brown shag carpet on the walls. But it turned out more than 100 gold and platinum records by the likes of Neil Young, Tom Petty, Pat Benatar, Cheap Trick, Fleetwood Mac, and Nine Inch Nails. The reason? Its legendary Neve 8028 sound board, one of only four in the world. In his accom- plished first feature, Foo Fighters frontman and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl has crafted a “high-spirited, emo- tional, and funny” (LA Times) ode to the predigital era of straight-to-tape recording. It’s a music geek’s dream with a fantastic soundtrack.
