Tickets for the Los Angeles gig go on sale January 16th at noon; and you can check out a full list of theaters that will be showing Sound City on January 31st for one night only, or during its entire run starting February 1st. 

Sound City marks Grohl's directorial debut, and the film tells the story of the famed Van Nuys, California, studio where artists like Nirvana, Tom Petty and Metallica recorded classic albums.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
