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.
