Tunes On Film: It Might Get Loud coming October 16

by

It Might Get LoudThe alliance of music and film is taken a bit for granted these days, but let’s be honest: The two are inseparable. Take, for example, this, this and this. And that’s with omitting the way-obvious scene in Say Anything where new-wave-kid John Cusack proudly blares Peter Gabriel‘s “In Your Eyes” out of his ghettoblaster to woo his girl… something that no self-respecting new wave kid would have done, but we digress. (It’s not available online due to copyright restrictions, anyway.) The point is music and film are a match made in heaven, something Hollywood learned well in the ’80s and ’90s and that independent filmmakers have taken even further in the years since. 

The latest example is coming to the Moxie Cinema screens a week from this Friday. (In other words, 10/16.) It Might Get Loud takes the viewer into the minds, histories and influences of three of rock’s most prominent and influential guitarists: Jimmy Page of The Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin, The Edge of U2 and Jack White of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs. It’s a chance to see each player’s style turned inside-out as the three sit down together and reveal the secrets behind their respective sounds, a rare reveal to be sure.
