Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl makes a music documentary, ‘Sound City.’
Dave Grohl’s not just a Foo Fighter. Now he’s a film director.
Sound City, his documentary on the historic L.A. recording studio of the same name, is set to screen locally once and once only: at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Harkins Bricktown Cinemas 16, 150 E. Reno. It’s scheduled for nowhere else in the state.
Fresh from its Jan. 18 premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, the film includes such music heavyweights as Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, Barry Manilow, Pixies’ Frank Black, producer Rick Rubin, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, John Fogerty, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich and many, many more.

Try as you might, but there’s no escaping Kanye West. Turn on the TV,
radio, computer — hell, take a stroll downtown and you might see his mug

2013: Kanye West is bigger than Buddha, Krishna and The Beatles (today,
anyway) and he’ll be the first to let you know about it.
