New Wilco doc – snuck in at the last minute

We are happy to announce a special addition to our Spring calendar!

On April 10-11 we’ll be showing the new Wilco documentary, Ashes of American Flags. From the description:

We’re pleased to present special premiere screenings of this excellent new Wilco concert documentary. Beautifully shot by directors Brendon Canty (of Fugazi) and Cristoph Green (the folks behind the Burn To Shine films) Ashes of American Flags is an intimate document of the Chicago band along their 2008 tour.

The group performs live in five quintessentially American venues: Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Tipitina’s in New Orleans, The Mobile AL Civic Center, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. Between performances, we see the country’s landscapes drift by and get to know the people behind the music. Multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone takes Polaroids of fading small-town America. Bassist John Stirratt speaks about his family’s history in the New Orleans music scene. Guitarist Nels Cline talks about giving himself whiplash while performing. Jeff Tweedy sticks up for representational art.

But the real triumph of Ashes, the band’s first concert documentary, is its perfect capturing of the live Wilco experience: the spirit, the energy and the poignancy.

And if that’s not enough, we’ll be serving beer and wine in the cinemas. It’s like a Wilco concert and community listening party in one, for a measly $9. You can’t beat it.

Get your tickets now, they are selling fast.
