Local Music Tap: Motion City Soundtrack Movie, Acoustic Performance Of 1st Album

To celebrate the release of their new video documentary, Minneapolis-born Motion City Soundtrack is set to perform the album I Am The Movie acoustic in its entirety Wednesday in St. Paul.

Last year, after sorting through video footage and photographs of their experience making I Am The Movie in the early-2000s and liking what they saw, the band asked their friend Melissa Kraemer to lead and edit the project.

Now, for the first time ever, the band will celebrate the documentary's release by performing the album in its entirety at the McNally Smith Auditorium this Wednesday at 8 p.m.
