Sound Unseen opens tonight with 1981 punk film
Read the City Pages 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 punk/new wave 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 (City Pages reviews here , more here ), which mostly takes place at the Ritz in Northeast Minneapolis. 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!
