To celebrate the Record Store Day release of the “Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records” documentary and its soundtrack, Vans will sponsor a half-dozen screening events in North America that will include a panel discussion and a “Wax Trax!-era” live set by Ministry.
The first event will be held on April 13 — which is Record Store Day — at the House of Vans in Chicago, at 113 N. Elizabeth St. Five additional tour stops are set for Brooklyn, Toronto, Austin, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Those venues have not yet been revealed, and tickets for all of the events will be available through partner record stores that have yet to be announced.
Each event will include a screening of the documentary, a live Q&A session and then performances by Ministry and Cold Cave. Al Jourgensen and Co. will play what’s being described in a news release as “a Wax Trax!-era, early ’90s set” of music — which is a little incongruous, since Ministry only released music on Wax Trax! in the early-to-mid-’80s. (Here’s hoping for a With Sympathy set over a Psalm 69 set).
See those tour dates below.
