Joe Jackson, Jason Mraz and Edie Brickell are among the artists who will perform at the Sundance Music Cafe during the Jan. 16-23 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Produced by performing rights association ASCAP, the performances will take place daily at Plan B/The Nightclub at 2:30 p.m. (4 p.m. on Jan. 16).

Also slated to entertain are the All-American Rejects, Joseph Arthur, Sweet Pea Atkinson & Was (Not Was) Quintet featuring Don & David Was, Jon Brion, Shawn Colvin, X leader/sometime actor John Doe, Ricky Fante, Goapele, John Hiatt, Tim O’Brien, Fernando Osorio, Clem Snide and Dan Wilson.

Music will have its place on the silver screen at the annual film festival. As previously reported, the documentary “Metallica: Some Kind of Monster” will be screened as part of the “American Spectrum” series.

Also, the drama “Grand Theft Parsons” will be show in the “Park City at Midnight” series. The film plays out the infamous drunken heist of legendary singer/songwriter Gram Parson’s coffin from Los Angeles International Airport and a pilgrimage to the Joshua Tree desert to incinerate his body.

In the “Native Forum,” Danis Goulet’s “Spin” deals with a DJ’s obsession with a particular record and will see its U.S. premiere at Sundance. Among the “Premiere” films is a Depression-era feature starring Isabella Rosellini that centers on a contest to discover “The Saddest Music in the World.”
