BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE OF DENVER

IN CASE YOU DID FEEL LIKE SHOWING UP

Jello Biafra, Al Jourgensen, Groovie Mann just added to Denver Film Festival panel & screening of the Wax Trax! documentary on Friday Nov. 9.

That’s right – The artist’s panel scheduled for November 9th as part of INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT: The Story of Wax Trax! Records will now include Ministry front man, Al Jourgensen, Groovie Mann from My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, and long time Wax Trax! collaborator, friend and Colorado native, Jello Biafra. A second screening of the award winning documentary will screen also on Saturday November 10.

In addition, a special Wax Trax! event has been planned with a DJ set from Jello Biafra following the Friday night discussion at the Lion’s Lair.
Tickets for both screenings can be found here.

 

LIVE AT LEEDS
All your hard work with contacting festivals and letting them know you want to see the film has paid off!
We will be screening back in the UK at the LEEDS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL on November 3, 2018. This will be our last UK festival scheduled. We hope some of you all can check it out.

 

HEAD LIKE A HOLE
Well, it looks like Golden Gates and Tenderloins are in our future. We are super honored to be screening INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT in San Fransisco this November and December as part of ANOTHER HOLE IN THE HEAD 2018 programming. Actual screening dates and times are not firmed up and we will let you know as soon as the festival announces the details.

 

SWINGIN’ PARTY
Yep, the Wax Trax! documentary is heading to the Twin Cites. We’ll be in the land of Paisley Parks, Twin Tones and Husker Dues. Please join the awesome crew at SOUND UNSEEN FILM FESTIVAL in Minneapolis, MN as they screen the Wax Trax! documentary over multiple nights. We just got word that the first screening sold out pretty quickly but it looks like they have scheduled a third showing of the film.  I wouldn’t delay on picking up tickets for one of these other screenings or you may just be out of luck – You’ve been warned!

 

Let us not forget about the screenings we have scheduled already! The Wax Trax! documentary will be in Barcelona twice (Oct. 27 & Nov. 4) and Madrid on Nov. 3.
For the Saturday, October 27 screening, Richard Jonckheere and Patrick Codenys will join Julia Nash for a special artist panel/ Q&A. Tickets for all three screenings can be found at IN-EDIT Barcelona, and IN-EDIT Madrid.

 

Don’t forget, a full list of screenings can be found on our screenings page here at waxtraxfilms.com.

-Until next time.

REWARDS, REWARDS, REWARDS!

wax-trax_Monumentary_kickstarter-rewards
As some of you Kickstarter backers already know, we’ve been busy this month as gifts from our Kickstarter campaign have been hitting the postal stream. We will be sending out an official Kickstarter update this upcoming week to summarize the campaign so all you backers
will have a better idea of where we are with fulfillment and what still is expected.

TOUR TIME

As we mentioned recently, a couple of Wax Trax! all stars are still out on the road.

Our Sinister friends in MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT will be riding the mindway in the US for another 2 weeks. The shows have been fabulous with Groovie Mann and Company in classic form. The Electric Messiah Tour will conclude in Texas on December 13th. Better get on the stick boy…After that,  the days of swine and roses will be over!

Also-We were lucky to be able to check out Paul Barker on his latest stint with Puscifer as their production came through Chicago. Part concert… part theater… part full nelson body slams in the wrestling ring. All I can say is I never imagined Mr. Barker would look so dignified in a luchador mask…This show is highly recommended!

DUBNEWALBUMWITHMYHEADMAN

I’ve said this before, but Underworld will always hold a very special place in my heart. Besides being an undeniable classic in the Wax Trax! catalog, the band was one of the last artists signed by my dad before he passed. For a lot of us, they represented the last of an era as the direction and tone of the label shifted at the time. We cannot wait to hear the new release and hopefully a US tour won’t be far behind.

That’s it for now. Official Kickstarter update will be coming next for all of you who have helped us with the movie campaign so keep your eyes peeled for that. Also, whether it’s this Monday or not, keep checking back to the WAX TRAX! RECORDS online store for updated WAX TRAX! merch and rarities during the holiday season!

As always, join the group conversation on Facebook at waxtraxchicago, our WAX TRAX! twitter page for #waxtraxfriday, and on the Wax Trax! instagram for visuals from inside WTHQ.
