Milwaukee Film Festival has lined up some great music documentaries this year

560 315

Every Thursday on Radio Milwaukee we — the Journal Sentinel’s Piet Levy and 88Nine’s Evan Rytlewski — talk about the music coming into Milwaukee and the music coming out of Milwaukee on Tap’d In.

The Milwaukee Film Festival kicks off its first-ever spring installment this month, starting today and running from May 20. And on this week’s episode of Tap’s In, we’re talking about a perennial highlight of the festival: Its Sound Vision music documentary program.

“Summer of Soul”

Highlights of this year’s program include “Summer of Soul,” the directorial debut from Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson about a historic concert that rivaled Woodstock in terms of sheer ambition, and documentaries about Tom Petty, punk legend Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex, and women in electronic music.

And yes, perennial favorite “Stop Making Sense” is back, too.

You can hear us discuss the program on this week’s episode below.
