Led Zeppelin Played Here

This slapdash documentary by Jeff Krulik (Heavy Metal Parking Lot) looks at U.S. rock culture before the concert industry took off—a time when high-profile acts like James Brown and the Kinks regularly played town halls and high school gymnasiums. The title refers to a legend in the Washington, D.C., area that Led Zeppelin played their third-ever U.S. concert to a near-empty Maryland youth center in January 1969, and much of the movie consists of D.C.-area fans recounting favorite show-going experiences and displaying treasured memorabilia. Krulik grants ample speaking time to all his subjects, whether they have anything interesting to say or not; along with the amateurish video work, this gives his documentary the feel of a home movie.
