Dave Grohl’s ‘Sound City Players’ to Perform After Los Angeles Film Premiere
Park City, Utah, doesn't get to have all the fun, as Dave Grohl will bring his Sound City Players to Los Angeles on Jan. 31, coinciding with the Hollywood theatrical premiere of his 'Sound City' documentary.
The Los Angeles premiere will take place at the Cinerama Dome and is invite-only. However, Grohl and a number of his musical friends will make the couple of blocks trek to the Palladium after the premiere to play a concert at the Palladium.
A number of the same performers from the Sundance Film Festival event will return for the Los Angeles concert, with a few new names joining in as well. The Sound City Players lineup features Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear joining Grohl, as well as his Foo Fighters cohorts Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, and Rami Jaffe. In addition, fans can look for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's Robert Levon Been and Peter Hayes, John Fogerty, Jessy Greene, Queens of the Stone Age's Chris Goss and Alain Johannes, Stevie Nicks, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Rick Springfield, Fear's Lee Ving and Rage Against the Machine's Brad Wilk.
The documentary centers on the famous Sound City studio in Los Angeles where many of the great records in music history were made. Grohl interviewed a number of musicians who have recorded there and turned it into a documentary on the history of the studio.
In addition to the Los Angeles premiere and a public screening, 'Sound City' will debut in a number of theaters on Jan. 31 and select dates in February. For a full rundown of when and where the film is playing, check here.
