Dave Grohl in the 'Sound City' director's chair...
Sound City

We already told you about Dave Grohl's directorial debut, documentary Sound City, which is a love letter to the famed (and now defunct) LA recording studio that gave birth to such classic albums as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' Damn The Torpedoes and Nirvana's Nevermind.

The film made its debut at Sundance in January, and hit select theaters last night (1/31), the same night that Dave Grohl and his "Sound City Players" played the Hollywood Palladium in LA. The Sound City players are contributors to the film's soundtrack, plus a few others. The complete lineup includes Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Lee Ving of Fear, Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Alain Johannes, and Chris Goss, with backing from Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Krist Novoselic, Chris Shiflett, and Pat Smear.

That same lineup will be making their way to NYC this month for a show at Hammerstein Ballroom on February 13. Tickets ($87.50) go on sale, Tuesday, February 5 at 4 PM. They say this will be the "first and only" Sound City Players show in NYC.

You can watch the Sound City film now if you want to fork over $12 and download it. The soundtrack (which also features Paul McCartney, Trent Reznor, and others) will be out March 12 on Roswell/RCA. Trailer below.

Wait who the fuck puts an on sale at 4 PM. This is gonna be silly.

This is more exciting than when Nirvana reformed with Paul McCartney.

this is pretty great. grohl/novoselic/smear onstage together, at a show i can actually afford to go to.

anyone know the palladium setlist? did they do any vana?

surprised they chose such a small venue - they could've MSG'd this thing.

FACE times 5. Easily. Getting tickets at the onsale will be a clusterfuck, and will be damn near impossible. More than half the house will likely be held for industry (not just music industry, but also film) types, press, and friends of the musicians.

Keep in mind, even with cool guests- the Foo Fighters are still the backing band. Corporate cheese-rock. Just go see Stevie with Fleetwood Mac.

Posted by Anonymous | February 1, 2013 4:49 PM

Fleetwood Mac isn't corporate cheese rock?

Posted by Anonymous | February 1, 2013 5:07 PM

Well keep in mind, Fleetwood Mac has good albums. Foo Fighters do not.

2:58, Novaselic played with the Foo Fighters at one of the NJ shows last year.

Probot didn't teach the kids about metal, this movie won't teach the kids about the rock...in short, FUCK THE KIDS.

Tickets went in about 15 seconds. Thank you very much for the late hour onsale and to BV and other sites for fucking up and forgetting to make a reminder post.

Got mine plus extras to scalp the shit out of. Very excited. Should make some loot on this.

Got mine 10 minutes in. Who wants 'em?

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 4:21 PM

you won't be scalping the shit out of them, as there are currently a lot of tickets for only like $50 above face on Stub Hub. Hardly the 5x face someone above assumed.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 4:32 PM

^Scalp prices for these will rise as less tickets become available and additional players to the show are announced. Yes there are some bigger names that have yet to be revealed.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 4:51 PM

@451 lol no there aren't.

5:06 lol yes there are you dumb clueless fuck.

never heard of um

@509 it's ok dude, you'll get your coke money, but they aren't adding anymore names to this show. I know this.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 8:41 PM

They aren't going to add any names officially to this show beforehand, why would they? But the chances that some of the bigger names associated with this thing that aren't listed may indeed show up unannounced are indeed fairly high.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 8:45 PM

Tickets are still available on ticketmaster. You just need to know where to look...

this movie is incredible and Dave Grohl did such a good job with it. Would really love to see the NYC show with the Sound City Players but maybe I'll just have to settle for the film over and over again!

Remember when people thought this would be a scalpers dream? The people who have tickets listed on SH would be lucky to only lose 15$

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2013 10:13 AM

^You can't possibly mean the people who did not already sell their extras right after the on sale? The ones who made upwards of 75-100 bucks on each ticket. People like myself. What were you saying again, schmuck?

Not a bad dream to have my tickets paid for and make some extra cash.

Posted by Anonymous | February 10, 2013 10:32 AM

No dumb ass. The tickets right now on SH are $69. I made money on them too.
