The screening with be followed by a Q&A with director Lance Bangs, Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley and The Pastel's Stephen McRobbie

Released in 1988, Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation is one of the defining indie records of the 20th century. In 2007, the band performed the album in full on fewer than 20 occasions, and Lance Bangs’ live concert film captures one rapturous performance, right here in Glasgow. Blending HD concert footage with fragments of super8 and 16mm stock from Bangs’ private archive of the band, Daydream Nation is an incredible document of an iconic band at their prime. The film holds a particular poignancy due to the performance taking place in the ABC, which Thurston Moore described as ‘the type of venue for which the songs were written’.
