City Slang: Tony D’Annunzio talks Grande



At the Lido Gallery tonight (Thursday evening), Louder Than Love: The Grande Ballroom Story director Tony D’Annunzio will be on hand for a meet-and-greet. The chat will be moderated by yours truly.

“The evening will feature a talk by Tony and an exhibition of posters by iconic rock poster artist Gary Grimshaw. Louder Than Love: The Grande Ballroom Story chronicles the Detroit music scene in the late 1960s, as told through the eyes of the legendary bands who played there.”

City Slang published a column on the movie back in March, and since then it has won numerous awards and earned endless plaudits.

See you tonight.
