Dave Grohl Presents Sound City

Dave Grohl will make his directorial debut tonight at the Sundance Film Festival with the release of Sound City. The documentary is gushing love letter to Sound City Studios, the legendary California recording studio responsible for an astonishing amount of landmark albums.

The project started when Grohl purchased a recording console shortly after the studio closed in 2011. That console, a custom Neve 8028, sat in Studio A for over 30 years and recorded everything from Fleetwood Mac's Rumours to Nirvana's Nevermind.

Along with the movie, Grohl has made an album with an all-star cast titled, Sound City - Real to Reel. Both the movie and album are available for preorder, with an expected release date of February 1st.

Can't wait that long? Sound City will have a one-night only showing on January 31st in theaters across the US. Chicago people, you're only chance (so far) is the Landmark Century Centre Cinema.
