"It's part documentary, part biopic, part time capsule and part mixtape—actually, it's really a study in character, and how strength of character is sometimes all you need." - LA Record
Pre-show: Happy hour with drink specials and musical celebration of Stones Throw artists before the show at 7pm.
A feature-length documentary (Los Angeles Film Festival 2013, SXSW 2014) about avant-garde Los Angeles-based hip-hop record label Stones Throw Records. The film weaves together rare concert footage, never-before-seen archival material, inner-circle home video and photographs and in-depth interviews with artists—like Peanut Butter Wolf and Madlib—who put Stones Throw Records on the map. Bolstered by exclusive interviews with Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Common, Questlove, Talib Kweli, and The Beastie Boys' Mike D, OUR VINYL WEIGHS A TON gives an exclusive look into the label's left-of-center artists, history, culture, and global following.
