Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury

Parallel Love asks a question you don’t hear very often: What happens to a rock-and-roll band when three-fifths of its members become Eastern Orthodox priests? That’s what Luxury, a band from Athens, Georgia, had to deal with after a devastating auto wreck they suffered on tour in 1995 while just on the cusp of success. Best described as The Smiths-meet-Fugazi, Luxury’s hyper-articulate musicians tell their poignant story—and play their soaring melodies on top of wild post-punk instrumentation—in this vibrant, gripping film. “I couldn’t take my eyes off it,” says Paste Magazine.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

This film is part of the Sounds of Summer 2019: Music Films, Old and New series.
