Rush Doc Wins Tribeca Audience Award, Paste Re-Invites Rush to Perform at Paste


It’s no secret that Paste (especially managing editor, Nick Marino) loves Rush. So it goes without saying that we’re thrilled to hear the documentary chronicling the band, Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, snagged this year’s Tribeca Audience Award.

The documentary follows the band through its 42-year history, including commentary from fans like Gene Simmons, Billy Corgan and Jack Black along the way. Directors Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn accepted a $25,000 prize for their film at the festival’s Wrap Party Saturday night. “Receiving the Heineken Audience Award at Tribeca means a lot to us as Rush has always been a band of the people,” said McFadyen and Dunn. “It was great to see Rush fans and non-fans enjoy the movie together.”

Hey, Rush, wanna celebrate this prestigious honor with a performance at Paste HQ? The invitation stands.
