Get ready for some Native American rock 'n' roll when the Magic Lantern opens its doors on Friday. The theater will be screening "Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World," which IMDB describes simply enough:
"Artists discuss the role that Native Americans have played in the development of American popular music."
Here are some critical comments:
Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times: "Inevitably cursory, it's nonetheless a fascinating introduction to the ways that core components of Americana wouldn't be eradicated. Or silenced."
Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter: "The influence of Native Americans on nearly a century of popular music is eloquently demonstrated in this engaging documentary."
Ken Jaworowski, New York Times: "It's been a terrific few years for music documentaries, and that winning streak continues with 'Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World.' "
And, yes, it's OK to dance in your seat.
