As proof that you can’t keep a good band down, the Sound City Players, a supergroup put together by Dave Grohl to promote his ‘Sound City‘ documentary, will perform at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Feb. 13. This will be their only New York appearance.

The group is Grohl, with members of Foo Fighters and Nirvana serving as a house band while musicians take turns sitting in. Among the classic rockers are such legends as Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty and Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick.

Grohl debuted the group with a three-hour show last month at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, where ‘Sound City’ received its premiere. They reprised the gig on Thursday (Jan. 31) at the Hollywood Palladium for the movie’s Los Angeles debut.

Tickets for the Hammerstein Ballroom show wil go on sale Feb. 5 at 4:00PM Eastern. There is a four-ticket limit per person. Complete details can be found at Ticketmaster.

The film, which chronicles the history of the L.A.’s legendary Sound City Studios, is receiving limited runs in select cities. However, if you are unable to make one of those rare screenings, you can also stream or download the movie from its website.
