SECOND SCREENING – Wednesday 29 January Tickets on sale now Single Ticket and Double Pass
OUR VINYL WEIGHS A TON:

This Is Stones Throw Records

Presented by Groovescooter, Eastside FM, Metro Screen and Decode Media

We’re thrilled to be presenting the Sydney Premiere of this new documentary about one of our favourite, forward-thinking hip hop labels, Stones Throw, following it’s opening earlier this year at the L.A. Film Festival.

Direct from the documentary’s writer/director Jeff Broadway, this will be the first time Sydney audiences can hear the full story from label co-founder Peanut Butter Wolf as he takes viewers through forming the label with Charizma, through to the present day.

With a soundtrack by MADLIB, this full-length feature film draws on over 100 hours of footage from filmmaker Jeff Broadway, live concert footage, never-before-seen archival material, inner-circle home video and photographs, and in-depth interviews with the folks who put Stones Throw on the map, in order to delve deeper into the label’s enigmatic artists, history, culture and global following.

Features: Peanut Butter Wolf, Madlib, J Dilla, J Rocc, MF DOOM, Mayer Hawthorne, Dam-Funk, Kanye West, Questlove, Talib Kweli, Common, Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Ariel Pink, Geoff Barrow, Flying Lotus, A-Trak, Ben Harper and more.

We expect this screening to be one of our more popular ones, so we’ve made the cheap ticks available beforehand. No booking fee, just an assurance you’ll have a seat.
