"The Boston show is officially sold out. It might be moving to a larger capacity venue, but we don't really know for sure yet. Watch this space for updates.

I wanted to tell everyone about a project I think you will find interesting and that is just playing for a limited time in theaters. It's the film "Kurt Cobain About A Son". Director AJ Schnack has teamed up with writer Michael Azerrad for a film about Kurt Cobain. During Azerrad's research for his book "Come As You Are: The Nirvana Story" he interviewed Cobain extensively, creating hours upon hours of audio tape where Cobain goes deeply into his life story. This audio became the foundation for the film, which has a tone and shape unlike any other music documentary.

As Azerrad and Schnack met up during the filming of Gigantic, we want to wish them both the best of luck, and make everyone aware of its theatrical release! While it will inevitably be seen in broadcast, it's an extremely vivid and visual piece, and really best seen in a proper theater.
