Acclaimed documentary chronicles the life of the Morphine frontman, who died on stage in 1999.
If you aren't going to see the LCD Soundsystem concert film "Shut Up and Play the Hits," maybe Gateway Film Center's screening of "Cure For Pain: The Mark Sandman Story" is up your alley. Sandman, the brooding, brilliant frontman for Boston band Morphine, collapsed on stage in Italy in 1999 and was pronounced dead of a heart attack.
Part of the Gateway's Rockin' and Reelin' series, the film screens at 8 tonight, preceded by a happy hour at 7. CD102.5's Brian Phillips and Watershed's Colin Gawel will introduce the film and host the event. All proceeds from the $5 tickets will be donated to CD101 For the Kids.
