Mon, Sep 12 at 8:00pm: Post-screening discussion (and live podcast recording) with Lucy's Record Shop owner Mary Mancini and LUCY BARKS! director Stacy Goldate | BUY TICKETS

In the mid-’90s, Nashville’s music scene sustained under the weight of country, singer-songwriter, and Christian contemporary music with very few options for anyone under 21 who preferred punk, grunge, and indie rock. That was, until a little record shop with the mantra “no racist, sexist, or homophobic shit tolerated” appeared on the scene. 

LUCY BARKS! chronicles the heyday of Lucy’s Record Shop, the all-ages music venue that put Nashville on the touring map for bands like Bikini Kill, Cat Power and Brainiac and became a flashpoint for a growing alternative music and art scene of its own.

In conjunction with Lucy's Record Shop’s 30th Anniversary celebration (Sun, Sep 18) at Drkmttr

A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Oasis Center and Nashville Launch Pad, two organizations that provide support services to displaced youths in Davidson County.

NASHVILLE LAUNCH PAD is a volunteer-based initiative striving to provide street-free sleep to displaced youths between the ages of 18-24, with a focus on being affirming and welcoming to LGBTQIA+ youth.

OASIS CENTER builds relationships that advance youth well-being, amplify youth voice, and inspire action toward a just community, while helping Nashville youth transition to a happy, healthy adulthood by providing spaces for them to feel connected, loved, valued and safe.
