Sound Unseen kicks off tonight
Read my profile of local-music filmmaker Rick Fuller (his website ) and then head down to the Riverview Theater tonight if you're near Minneapolis to see his 7 Nights in the Entry , a must-watch 1981 documentary featuring early performances by Husker Du, the Replacements (click for a video sample), Fine Art, the Dads, Things That Fall Down, Hypstrz, the Neglectors, Rusty Jones & the Generals, the Situation, Wilma & The Wilburs, Stagger Lee, and Peer Group. It's screening as part of this week's Sound Unseen festival (reviews here , more here ), which mostly takes place at the Ritz . Girls Rock! , which screens Saturday afternoon at 3:00 p.m., also looks pretty awesome. Afterparty tonight in the 7th St. Entry honoring "Artists of Distinction" Tony Paul (of KFAI), Dessa (of Doomtree) and Conrad (from First Avenue). See you at the Sound Unseen Dance Party Saturday!
