Los Angeles, Calif. – May 1, 2023 — Writer/Director James Gunn hosted some of the most influential names in music Friday night for a first look at Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3” inside Knowhere Bar— an immersive pop-up nightclub and theater which took inspiration from the Guardians’ home base. Stars Chris Pratt and Pom Klementieff welcomed artists and cultural tastemakers like Diplo, NIKI, Dorian Electra, Money Mark of the Beastie Boys, LUCK, and many more while DJ Shana Sharett spun tunes and the cast posed for photos and told stories.
Music has always played a major role in all the Guardians films, so this rare gathering of L.A.’s music scene was the perfect way to celebrate the franchise’s final installment. The special gathering also included representatives from several of the communities most prominent collectives such as Emo Nite, 88 Rising, Brownies & Lemonade and more.
In Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” our beloved band of misfits are settling into life on Knowhere. But it isn’t long before their lives are upended by the echoes of Rocket’s turbulent past. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him on a dangerous mission to save Rocket’s life—a mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.
