The Official Film of Record Store Day 2013, LAST SHOP STANDING: THE RISE, FALL AND REBIRTH OF THE INDEPENDENT RECORD SHOP, is based on a book by Graham Jones, and directed by Pip Piper. Free screenings are happening this week in partnership with record stores across the country.
LAST SHOP STANDING should be an essential watch for anyone who grew up going to record shops or for those who want to explore the music world further deeper than what is online. Mark Searby, MTV
Hear from over 20 record shop owners and music industry leaders as well as musicians including Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, Norman Cook, Billy Bragg, Nerina Pallot, Richard Hawley and Clint Boon as they all tell us how the shops became and still are a part of their own musical education, a place to cherish and discover new bands and new music.
Get DCs Record Store Day started early with a free screening of LAST SHOP STANDING, hosted in the back room at Comet Ping Pong (5037 Connecticut Ave NW Washington, DC 20008). No cover. Regular food and drink menu available.
