Nitehawk and Noisey present August’s MUSIC DRIVEN film Lightning Bolt: The Power of Salad.

In the summer of 2001, filmmakers Peter Glantz and Nick Noe followed the noise rock band Lightning Bolt from New York to California to make the tour documentary, Lightning Bolt: The Power of Salad (and Milkshakes) capturing nineteen of their jaw-dropping shows.  Loud and aggressive, the duo formed in Providence, Rhode Island in 1994 by Brian Gibson and Brian Chippendale and quickly became known for their guerilla-style live performances (like not actually playing on stage). This documentary features cameos from indie rock celebrities, Pink and Brown, along with interviews featuring the friends and family of Gibson and Chippendale.
