I just saw Anvil! The Story of Anvil last night and I am so totally enraptured that I would gladly endure another sweltering, crowded, reeling from motion sickness car ride from Silver Lake to Westwood to see it again. I would.
In fact, I may be doing that because I just found out that Anvil will be making a live appearance at the 7:50 PM screening of the film this Wednesday at The Landmark Theater in Westwood! You can buy tickets in advance here.
For those unfamiliar, Anvil! The Story of Anvil is a documentary about the Canadian heavy metal band, Anvil. This is not one of those Spinal Tap-ish fake documentaries, these dudes are painfully real. The film is directed by Sacha Gervasi and I would tell you more about it, but it won’t be as good as you just watching the trailer, so check it out:
Anvil! The Story of Anvil is only showing at one theater in LA, The Landmark, which is located at 10850 West Pico at Westwood Blvd.
If anyone is interested in coordinating a group carpool over there from Silver Lake, leave a comment here and me know.
Also, if you get there early, there is a swanky lounge right across from the concession stand downstairs where you can get properly lubed up before slobbering your platitudes all over the band.
