00dontknocktherocklc8
L.A.’s Don’t Knock the Rock Festival, home of what its organizers call “off the radar” music pics, is soliciting donations to mount its seventh annual go-’round, scheduled for Cinefamily’s Silent Movie Theater in July and August.

Named after the 1956 rocksploitation opus starring Bill Haley and DJ Alan Freed, DKTR is helmed by Allison Anders, director of the rock-friendly features “Mi Vida Loca,” “Border Radio,” “Grace of My Heart” and “Sugar Town,” and her daughter Tiffany. The fest has screened a host of worthy features over the years, including the docs “Roky Erickson: You’re Gonna Miss Me,” “Monks: The Transatlantic Feedback,” “Gram Parsons: Grievous Angel” and “MC5: A True Testimonial” and the dramatic feature “Ladies and Gentlemen The Fabulous Stains.” Past festival events have included appearances by Sonic Youth, PJ Harvey and members of the Gun Club and the Monks.
