What’s up Madvillains, Dilla Heads and Dam-Funkateers!
On Thursday May 29 at 7:00 PM, CJSW 90.9 FM presents a one-night-only screening of “Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton” at the Globe Cinema. The Jeff Broadway directed documentary follows the history of Los Angeles-based, Stones Throw Records, from it’s humble beginnings pressing DJ battle records to the premiere independent hip-hop, soul, and funk record label of this era. Home to the likes of J. Dilla, Madlib, Dam Funk, and Mayer Hawthorne, the film weaves together rare concert footage, never-before-seen archival material, inner-circle home video and photographs and in-depth interviews with the artists who put Stones Throw Records on the map.
The DirtyNeedles posse is honored to be a part of this special event, setting the mood by playing classics from the Stones Throw catalouge at the reception in the lobby of the Globe prior to the screening. Come down early and hear some gems that have made Stones Throw the indie powerhouse it has become.
Tickets to the screening are $10 or 2 for 1 with your CSJW Friends Card!!!
