Walking on the wild side at Sundance

In addition to the ASCAP Music Cafe, this year’s Sundance Film Festival will once again celebrate music in films. One of the highlights of this will be a live appearance by the legendary Lou Reed.

The Rock-n-Roll Hall of Famer and founding member of The Velvet Underground will be at the Kimball Art Center on Sunday, Jan. 23, for the annual Celebration of Music in Film event. Reed will be debuting his inspiring short film “Red Shirley” at the Festival.

The event is open to all festival credential holders.

On Wednesday, Jan. 26, the Kimball Art Center (which for the festival will be become the Sundance House presented by HP) will host the BMI Snowball. Performers that night include Allen Stone, David Poe, Lucy Schwartz, Brett Dennen and Robert Randolph. Again, the event is open to credential holders.

At various times through the festival, The Johnny Cash Project will be playing at the New Frontier at Miner’s Hospital,
1354 Park Avenue. More information can be found at http://www.thejohnnycashproject.com. Limited space will be available for the general public and the event is free.
