Alternative Music Film Society – Film Fest

Some new and different relationships are brewing here at the MAG. Key words would be: Alternative, Film and Music. This Friday launches the first of a mini- film series that Lakeshore Record Exchange on Park Ave, Radio Goddess Jennifer V, and Christopher Amann are coordinating at the Memorial Art Gallery. Here is a note (and image) that we received from Lakeshore’s Andrew Chinnici:

“As one of the shrinking number of record store owners in the US we’re continually trying new ideas to keep up interest in buying physical media whether vinyl, CD or DVD. Our latest venture is the formation of the “Alternative Music Film Society”. A partnership between our shop and the city’s art gallery (The Rochester Memorial Art Gallery). Beginning May 10th we’re screening a music themed film once a month in the gallery’s auditorium.

Our first three films are

Urgh! A Music War on May 10th

Joy Division : The Documentary June 15th

The Replacements : Color Me Obsessed July 19th

To kick off our film series and announce to the public our initial film schedule we brought in the band China Crisis for a free concert this past Tuesday April 30th. The concert went off perfectly as the band played to a packed house and ended their set to a standing ovation.

Before the evening ended I made sure to get a photo with the band’s lead singer Gary Daly showing our support of Record Collector.” –
