Gearing up for NYC

Musicwood is coming to NYC! It’s been a whirlwind few months, with our international premiere in London, screenings in Flagstaff, Chicago (members of Wilco attended!), Toronto, Seattle, and more. But now we’re happy to announce that we will be screening for a week in NYC at The Quad Cinema in the Village. Tell all your New York friends! We’re putting together some really special events, locking in some acoustic artists to play before screenings, and of course, we’ll be doing Q&A’s after the shows. It’s going to be a great time. We hope to see you there! And if you can’t make it, check out our brand new DVD store and get yourself a DVD to watch in your very own home! We’re going big with Musicwood, as big as an old-growth 600 year-old Spruce!
