To help promote the premiere of his new documentary about the legendary Los Angeles recording studio, Sound City, Dave Grohl has assembled a massive “supergroup” slated to descend upon Park City, Utah for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
Who is in this “supergroup”? Last we heard, the Sound City Players consists of Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Members of Nirvana and Foo Fighters, Rick Springfield, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Lee Ving (Fear), Rage Against the Machine’s drummer Brad Wilk, and…. sorry, we can’t keep up. According to initial press materials, the band was only suppose to include “core musicians and special guests” featured in the Sound City documentary. But based on the current lineup, it looks like Grohl invited just about everyone from the movie.
As far as we know, all of this musical talent is only scheduled to perform one concert on January 18. But who knows what might happen. We wouldn’t be surprised if Stevie Nicks and Brad Wilk, armed with only a guitar and maraca, spontaneously did an acoustic set at a random coffee shop in Park City. After all, stranger things have happened at Sundance.
Dave Grohl is practically making ChefDance, on 427 Main Street, his main base for Sundance. On January 18th, Grohl and selected guests will be dining in the ChefDance dining room. After dinner, a private cocktail reception will be held at Red Touch Media’s Social Media Lounge adjacent to the dining room. Then after cocktails and dinner, Grohl and his Sound City Players will perform a special concert in the upstairs area at ChefDance.
But you don’t have to be a VIP to check out the ChefDance venue. If you find yourself near ChefDance during the day, then please come hangout in the Red Touch Media Lounge, explore the space, relax, recharge and warm up.
