See the Slint Documentary in Williamsburg Next Month

April 24, 2014 | Andy Cush

The seminal ’90s band Slint, whose second album Spiderland nearly single-handedly spawned the genre we now know as post-rock, are back at it. They’re playing a few NYC shows next month, and recently reissued Spiderland along with Breadcrumb Trail, a documentary about the band by the director Lance Bangs.

May 1, the Wythe Hotel is holding a screening of the film followed by a Q&A with band members Brian McMahan, Dave Pajo, and Britt Walford. $18 admission gets you into the screening as well as some fancy food from the chef of Reynard. Tickets to the Bowery Ballroom show are still available as well.
