Once upon a time in Los Angeles, the Tower Records store on the Sunset Strip was a sacred hotspot for rock and roll culture. Since the store closed, a victim of the internet as then reported, there have been threats of demolition and battles that kept it standing. Now, the store they just can't kill returns for a one-night-only bash to celebrate a documentary about the West Hollywood landmark, and the iconic brand it represented.
From Frontiers Media:
Colin Hanks' All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records is a new documentary exploring the history and legacy of Tower Records, which began in California in 1960 and expanded nationwide, with international franchises, before going bankrupt in 2006.
The documentary is out in theaters this Friday, October 16th, but is celebrating its premiere the day before with a party at none other than the old Tower Records site on Sunset, with a special performance from Eagles of Death Metal, a side project of Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.
Here's the film trailer. I'm looking forward to seeing it.
Yes, Colin Hanks is Tom Hanks' son. No, not that son. The other one.
