On June 25th, the first of the ‘Sounds of Summer’ films at Exposition Park in LA begins with ‘Stop Making Sense’ by Talking Heads presented by WUTI & Crush Palace. Considered as one of the greatest concert films ever made, ‘Stop Making Sense’ was shot over 4 nights in 1983 at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. The band was in the midst of the promotional tour for the album ‘Speaking in Tongues’. Directed by Jonathan Demme, it was the first film to be produced entirely using digital audio.
The ‘Sounds of Summer’ series is for everyone that has missed the excitement of shared music and large scale events over the past year. Each of the ‘Sounds of Summer’ events will be a unique experience, including director conversations, featured talent, guest DJs, and other “unexpected happenings .”
Fifteen percent of the ticket sales and concession profits will be donated to My Friend’s Place. For over 33 years, the organization has been assisting and inspiring youth (ages 12 through 25) who are experiencing homelessness, to build self-sufficient lives.
The screening of ‘Stop Making Sense’ by Talking Heads takes place June 25th at 9 PM, Exposition Park, Los Angeles. Details here.
