In 1996, DJ Peanut Butter Wolf created an independent record label as a means of posthumously releasing the late MC Charles Hicks/Charizma’s debut album. The endeavor soon grew into a multi-generational, international powerhouse in the underground music scene. On April 3rd, Southside Cinema Works will shed light on the music institution’s enduring legacy with a screening of Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton.

Directed by Jeff Broadway, this feature-length documentary focuses on avant-garde Los Angeles-based record label Stones Throw Records. Under the direction of founder and world-renowned DJ Peanut Butter Wolf, Stones Throw has consistently released critically acclaimed, left-of-center albums.  The film weaves together rare concert footage, never-before-seen archival material, inner-circle home video and photographs to provide an exclusive look into the label’s artists, history, culture, and global following. Features exclusive interviews with Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Common, Questlove, Talib Kweli, Mike D of The Beastie Boys, Tyler the Creator, and many more.

Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton screens at 7:30 p.m.
