I Need That Record! Screening

Hi, all!

WESU is pleased to announce that on Sunday, April 17th at 4:00 PM we will be hosting a screening of the film 'I Need That Record' to be followed by a Q&A with the documentary's director - Brendan Toller.

The documentary addresses the closing of thousands of record stores in recent years and the viability of the record store in the age of digital music and illegal downloads. The documentary includes insights from Noam Chomsky, Thurston Moore, Ian MacKaye, Glenn Branca and many others and was filmed right here in good ole' Connecticut.

The film also captures interviews with former WESU DJ Ian Laforce during the final days of Middletown’s Record Express as well as the closing of the legendary Trash American Style store in Danbury. Wallingford’s Redscroll Records (co owned by WESU stalwart Rick Sinkiewicz) is also spotlighted and provides a glimmer of hope for the future of the business.

Admission is free, but donations are strongly encouraged. Come join us!

When: Sunday, April 17th at 4:00 PM
Where: Shanklin room 107, Wesleyan campus, Church Street
(Shanklin is building #76 on the campus map )
