Meet Anvil This Wednesday

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.

  1. This is awesome! I saw this movie on Friday, and would happily see it again. And, Anvil is going to be there??? I’ve got to work this out.

  2. Yes, the theater announcer/greeter person told us last night that Anvil will be making an appearance at the 7:50 show on Wednesday!

  3. Did I say awesome? I meant F’ing AWESOME! Tickets purchased, seats reserved. Can’t wait!

  4. We saw it at the Nuart, great f’ing movie. Though, listening to their lyrics I understand why Metallica, Slayer, Megadeath and all the others went on to fame and fortune.

    Don’t miss it!

  5. From twitter: @AnvilMovie: Anvil & Sacha Gervasi (the director) will be @ LA’s Landmark Theater 2nite taking questions after 7:50 & 9:55 shows.
