Sound City will play as part of the Sundance Film Festival, which takes place January 17-27 in Park City, Utah. If you can't make it to the festival, though, you don't need to worry: It's going to be available on February 1, and you can put in your order now over at the film's website.
There's also a Sound City trailer out that gives a sense of the movie. From these 150 seconds, it looks like the documentary will be a combination of history about the studio and a general lament for the way rock music used to be made before digital technology profoundly changed the process. (You may remember that this is a topic Grohl very much cares about: Foo Fighters' Wasting Light was recorded on old-school tape rather than using computers.) For people who are nostalgic for the way rock 'n' roll used to be, Sound City could very much strike a chord.
