The Indians Who Rocked the World

Event hosts: 
Nancy and Charlie Erdrich
Kathi and Wayne Grider

RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World brings to light a profound and missing chapter in the history of American music: the Indigenous influence. Featuring music icons Charley Patton, Mildred Bailey, Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Robbie Robertson, Randy Castillo and TabooRUMBLE shows how these pioneering Native musicians helped shape the soundtracks of our lives.

As Catherine Bainbridge and Alfonso Maiorana’s astoundingly rich and resonant music documentary makes abundantly clear, American popular music – and the history of rock and roll itself – wouldn’t be the same without the contributions of Native American performers. Although these Indian musicians’ heritage is often an integral component of their artistic expression, it may not always be obvious to their fans.

Please note that this month’s film will be shown in the Boulder Creek Meeting Room in the main Boulder library (our usual location). Parking is available in the library lot. The first 90 minutes are free; an additional 90 minutes may be purchased for $1.25/hour. If you need to park longer than 3 hours, please park in a public parking garage or do street parking nearby to avoid a ticket. A bus stop is close by at Broadway and Arapahoe.

And be sure to sign up separately for the happy hour/dinner, following the film, at the Centro Mexican Kitchen located at 950 Pearl Street (a short walk from the library) -  this is listed as a separate event on the BNC calendar.
