I was going to blog about this tomorrow, but I just realized that today is your last chance to get tickets to the event. Brick and Mortar and Love, an indie-film about indie-record stores and indie-music and many other things indie, will be making the rounds in national film festivals, but you can see it in Louisville on Saturday, April 7, at 7:00 p.m. (doors at 6:30) at the Louisville Science Center (727 W. Main St).
The documentary delves into the last year of earX-tacy record store and the ever-changing music industry. The film opens with Jim James of My Morning Jacket and is loaded with interviews with various other industry folk. I happen to be one of these interviewees, but haven't been able to get my screener-copy to work on my European DVD drive. Still, I remember giving all sorts of opinions about music, the biz, record stores, and such, so maybe you can go see it to tell me if I made any sense.
For fun, and because Louisville is so awesome, there will be Q&A afterward with director Scott Shuffitt and ear X-tacy owner, John Timmons.
Tickets will not be available at the door, so you have to buy them at Please and Thank you, 800 E.
Market St (I hear you have to buy those today, Friday) or at Ticketweb.com. It's $5 a ticket, which is way cheaper than any other night out at the movies.
They also have fabulous "I love local" t-shirts available. I've got one (thanks, Scott!!), and I always get comments on it -- even in Scotland.
