Hailed by Peter Travers of ROLLING STONE as an “exhilarating documentary about
what makes life worth living... an intimate epic about music,” SOUND CITY is a
feature-length documentary film directed and produced by Dave Grohl of Foo
Fighters that tells the story of the legendary SOUND CITY recording studio in
Van Nuys, CA where Grohl’s former band Nirvana and countless others recorded
many of rock & roll’s most revered works. The film also explores the human
element vital to the creation of these classic albums, with both the film and
companion album SOUND CITY: REAL TO REEL capturing many of these same artists
creating brand new original music. More recently, Grohl convened the SOUND
CITY PLAYERS live extravaganza for a handful of one-time-only shows teaming
Dave Grohl and his extended Foo Fighters and Nirvana families with Stevie
Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Lee Ving of Fear, Rick Nielsen, Brad
Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour,
Chris Goss of Masters of Reality and Alain Johannes.

“We’re always looking for new ways to give our customers access, and what
better way than to offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see some of the
legendary names in music perform together,” said Jennifer Breithaupt, Senior
Vice President of Entertainment Marketing at Citi. “The buzz and enthusiasm
around Sound City has been infectious, and we expect this show to be one of
the most sought-after performances in Austin.”
