Sound Unseen branches out to the Great Lakefront


It's been 10 years since Sound Unseen began its yearly showcase of the most promising music-related films, a nice round number on which to expand, or straight-up double in size. So of course that's exactly what they're doing: the first annual Sound Unseen International, Duluth will be taking place June 2nd through 4th, kicking off the fest at the Sacred Heart Music Center just a few blocks in from the harbor.

Sound Unseen's Vilay Dethluxay explained the gist: "We've got Pizza Lucé as our partners to host our nightly music headquarters for the duration of the festival. Every night after a film, patrons can saunter over there to see bands presented by Sound Unseen. Some highlights so far will be Charlie Parr, Roma di Luna, Bight Club and Heiruspecs. Our opening night gala will be at the historic Greysolon Ballroom and local music darlings Solid Gold will make their debut to Duluth that night as well."

Participating venues include Zinema, Fitger's Spirit of the North Theater, Greysolon Plaza, Pizza Lucé, Grandma's Sports Garden and the beautiful, homicidal Glensheen Estate.

While the fest's website is fully operational quite yet, we expect it will be very shortly, at which point you can find it and all the details at
