The long-anticipated documentary about the rise and fall of Wax Trax! Records shop and record label — which received its first public airing this past April in Chicago — will be screened this November in Los Angeles at an event featuring current and former members of My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Revolting Cocks, Ministry and Front 242.
The 90-minute “Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records” — originally announced in 2013 as “Wax Trax! Records: The Documentary,” and later dubbed the “Wax Trax! Records Monumentary” — will receive what’s being billed as a “test screening” Nov. 9 at the Montalbán Theater in Hollywood.
Like this spring’s screenings in Chicago, a panel discussion of Wax Trax! history will take place after the film, featuring Groovie Mann and Buzz McCoy of My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult; Paul Barker of Pailhead, Ministry, 1,000 Homo DJs and Lead into Gold; Chris Connelly of Revolting Cocks, Acid Horse and Ministry; Richard 23 of Front 242 and RevCo; and Julia Nash, daughter of late Wax Trax! co-founder Jim Nash.
There’ll also be a Wax Trax! pop-up shop on site, selling original pressings, rare collectibles and more. Plus, fans who buy VIP tickets also will get a private meet-and-greet with the artists before the screening.
Tickets, $29-$80, are on sale now.
