Searching for Sugar Man + Sixto Rodriguez

Last Friday my friend Dottie and I had a lady date-night: drinks at Manhattan, and a movie at Cine.

We watched Searching For Sugar Man, and I hope all my Athens friends get a chance to see it before it leaves. Cine will have it until at least November 29, but after that, another film might take its place. I knew very little about Sixto Rodriguez before seeing the film, and the story was the sort of real life happy ending that makes this music publicist and human being's heart warm.

A big thanks to my roommate, for tolerating me playing (and singing) "Sugar Man" on an endless loop last Saturday. Light In The Attic Records is reissuing Cold Fact, Coming From Reality, and the film's soundtrack. Both reissues might end up on my Christmas list.


  1. We just finished working the soundtrack of SFSM to college radio. I <3 <3 <3 it, and am so sad to confess that I still haven't seen the film! Thanks for the reminder that I need to get my ass in gear before it's no longer available.

    1. Your MDs are lucky to have you teaching them about Rodriguez!!
