Vices new documentary Heavy Metal in Baghdad is an unlikely rock doc: metal T shirts are worn over bullet-proof vests, death threats are delivered from insurgent groups and religious fundamentalists, and practice spaces fluctuate, depending on which have been destroyed through missile attacks. So you think you have it rough applying for jobs with a Mastodon tattoo? Try gigging in Baghdad, bro. The good folks at Sweat Records (5505 NE Second Ave., Miami) are hosting a free (FREE!) screening tonight, at 8:30 p.m. They recommend arriving early for a good seat. We recommend you support Sweat with a purchase so that grassroots retail spaces like them can continue providing cool shit like this. Visit www.sweatrecordsmiami.com, or call 305-758-5862, ext. 5.
