Clive Davis – Soundtrack of our Lives Film at Art Spring

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 - 7:30pm

Chris Perkel’s riveting profile of legendary music man Clive Davis spans a remarkable five-decade career, providing an incredible tour of the most sensational music from the ‘60s to the rise of hip-hop. A very square and straight young Clive Davis sees Janis Joplin perform at the flower-strewn, marijuana-soaked 1967 Monterey Pop Festival. He is wearing a V neck tennis sweater over white pants. Kind of like showing up at a 1970s Beaver Point Hall dance in a suit! Although he is feeling out of place, he describes “I felt my spine tingle and my arms vibrate,” He’s blown away and describes it as an “epiphany” ~ “I realized this was going to be the future. I could feel it in my bones.” And it was the future, which he helped shape in his more than 50 year career in the music business. This film is the last in the Best of the Fest Film Series – next is our 19th Film Festival – March 2 to 4, 2018 – Weekend Passes are on sale now at ArtSpring
