I Need That Record!

Coming up this Saturday nite at Paris In Plantsville they continue their series of independent film screenings with Brendon Toller's fantastic "I Need That Record!",  a documentary feature examining why over 3000 independent record stores have closed across the U.S. in the past decade.
Greedy record labels, media consolidation, homogenized radio, big box stores, Ecommerce, shoddy "stars" pushed by big money, and the digital revolution all pose threats on the very well being of our favorite record stores and the music industry at large. Will these stores die? Will they survive?
With amazing animations by MATT NEWMAN!

The film starts right here in Connecticut with the final downfall of Record Express then soon we discover it's not just CT loosing these shops...
The film maker, Brandon Toller will be on hand for a Q&A session following the film, and he'll have copies of the DVD too!

The movie starts at 8PM. As always it's free to get in, but anyone who makes a donation of $5.00 or more will be entered into a raffle to win original art from a Paris In Plantsville Resident Artist and some music related goodies!
