Meridian had to reschedule half of its September music documentary screening series on account of the closure. Double down with two fine films that have been rescheduled to play this coming Monday, September 28:
At 7pm they'll show Scratch: "a documentary that focuses on the role of the DJ in hip-hop music, exploring how DJs turned the turntable into a musical instrument, the progressively more elaborate techniques involved in 'scratching' and how different turntablists dig up the rare and elusive LPs from which they draw the samples that they craft into new songs."
Then at 9pm they'll press play on Beautiful Noise: "an in-depth exploration of a music movement in the late 20th century, a fascinating period when some innovative musicians mixed guitar noise into conventional pop song structures while living up to the idea of letting the music speak for itself. Shoegaze, dream pop and other labels come to mind when we think of such bands like My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins and Ride."
No entry fee.
