WCNY, Auburn Public Theater, Octane Social House, the New York State Equal Rights Heritage Center host free preview of ‘Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World’ Jan. 16

WCNY, Auburn Public Theater, Octane Social House, and the New York State Equal Rights Heritage Center will host a free preview of “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16. A reception will be held prior to the preview of the film from 5 to 7 p.m.

“Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World” traces the melodies, rhythms, and beats of traditional Native American music as they took different forms across the spectrum of 20th-century American rock. Native Americans such as Robbie Robertson and Buffy Sainte-Marie helped to define its evolution, while Native guitarists and drummers such as Link Wray—the electric guitar pioneer whose titular instrumental hit was banned from the radio, Hall of Famer Jimi Hendrix, who was part-Cherokee, Jesse Ed Davis, and many more changed the trajectory of rock and roll.

Reception

The reception features live music by Joanne Shenandoah and food and beverages at the Equal Rights Heritage Center located 25 South St. in Auburn.

Preview

The preview takes places at the Auburn Public Theater located at 8 Exchange St. in Auburn. A Q&A will follow.

While the event is free, RSVP is requested at wcny.org/events or (315) 453-2424.
