New age rock opera...

You know what's missing today? That's right... more rock operas. My love for all things Hedwig and the Angry is vast, and introducing Lauren to it really re-ignited my passion about this beautiful little nugget of pop culture. Last night Alamo Drafthouse had a special 35mm showing of Hedwig and immediately after at the Highball a performance by a Hedwig cover band. Years ago I had the great idea of starting a Hedwig cover band, and I will keep kicking myself for not following though on that. I will volunteer to play bass and sing the Tommy Gnosis parts.. just let me know I am waiting patiently for the call. Enter, The Sideways Grimace. Not only was the 35mm print just beautiful... The Sideways Grimace really captured awesome tone and attitude of the movie. Look forward to seeing them on a day when we don't have to wake up a 6am the next day. - BRAD
