Tour Without End

(Laura Parnes, 2018)
Laura Parnes in person

The new film by the convention-busting Laura Parnes features an all-star parade of downtown legends (from Gary Indiana to Kathleen Hanna) as it follows a fictional rock band, Munchausen, navigating New York’s alternative music scene in the midst of rapid gentrification. (So rapid that many of the DIY spaces featured in the film have already been shut down).

When the veteran band embarks on a tour, Parnes captures all the complexities and absurdities of collaborating and aging in a youth-driven music industry. Shot over the course of four years, the film culminates when the band stops in Cleveland during the 2016 Republican National Convention and the gap between fiction and history gets even smaller and more chaotic. Also featuring Eileen Myles, K8 Hardy, Brontez Purnell, Kate Valk, and members of MGMT, Gang Gang Dance, Le Tigre, and Eartheater. (92 mins., DCP)

Please note: special event parking is available in the Ohio Union Garages.
