“Daydream” doc makes hometown Cinematheque bow

The unusual music documentary “Don’t Quit Your Daydream” makes its Los Angeles theatrical debut Wednesday night at the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theater. Variety gave the pic a pretty decent review when it played in Nashville last month.

The high-concept doc follows the Good Listeners — L.A. musicians Clark Stiles and Nathan Khyber — as they tool around the country with a film crew in tow, stopping in various offbeat locations for a series of one-day recording sessions with sundry locals. (One collaborator is Adrian Grenier of “Entourage,” the pic’s co-producer). Along the way, the performers reflect on their bitter experience in a major label act (Absinthe) and the toll that the quixotic profession of making music has taken on their lives.

Stiles, Khyber and Grenier will appear at the Cinematheque screening, and the Good Listeners will perform with special guests.
