Presented by: Vancouver International Film Festival, Exclaim! Media, Sad Mag
35 years of cranking it up to 11! That’s right, it’s been that long since the groundbreaking mock-rock-doc This Is Spinal Tap came out; what better way to celebrate than with a live scoring? At this special screening, a female fronted band led by Vancouver musician Louise Burns, play along to the ever-quotable movie, giving their own takes on "Stonehenge," "Sex Farm," "Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight" and all the other classics. Live band features Jody Glenham (Jody Glenham and the Dreamers), Catherine Hiltz (bassist, Tegan & Sara, Hot Panda) Ayla Tesler-Mabe (guitar, Calpurnia, Ludic), and Adam Fink (drummer, ACTORS).
