Rochester, NY August 15,  2013

On Friday August 16th, Lakeshore Record Exchange in conjunction with The Memorial Art Gallery debut the fourth film of the Alternative Music Film Series Glastonbury The Movie In Flashback. 

The Glastonbury Music Festival is one of the most reknown music festivals in the world.  Beginning in 1970, the day after Jimi Hendrix died with 1,500 people in attendance it has grown in number to over 150,000 with wide-ranging performances from Van Morrison to Bjork.   In Glastonbury The Movie In Flashback  a group of  film-makers, multimedia artists, cinematographers and musicians were given the rare opportunity in 1993 to film round the clock for ten days capturing over 100 hours of footage .  This footage gives the filmgoer the feeling of being in the center of the "Glastonbury experience".  Not only does the film highlight musical performances by Spiritualized,  Lemonheads, Stereo MC's, The Verve, Porno for Pyro's and the Orb but includes the concert goer perspective by adding the genuine pure response of the audience in the final year before the festival was shown on live network television.  According to director Robin Mahoney, "....Because we were trying to represent the sense of being at the festival from a ground level perspective, from the point of view of festival goers, and not just point our cameras at the bands, we've ended up with a telling picture of British life at that time."

The evening will begin at 7:00 pm with a cocktail party in the Atrium of the Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Avenue. The film will start at 8 PM.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.alternativemusic.com/film and the Memorial Art Gallery Box office for $10 OR at the door – Cash only, Seating is limited to 290, so get there early.
