SOUNDIES! ANOMALIES! EXOTICA! HULA DANCERS! SINGING OSTRICHES!.. 30 YEARS OF 16MM MUSICAL SURREALISM!!
Kicking off the Little Roxie’s new 16MM SHOWCASE—complete with a new projector!— Other Cinema/ATA Cofounder Craig Baldwin personally introduces melodic oddities miraculously excavated from his vast underground archive. Baldwin rhapsodizes on hilarious rarities from more than 30 jaw-dropping acts from the 1935-1965 period, mid-century marvels from before the “music video”…crossing serious art-history with high-camp absurdity. His 99 minutes of lyrical delirium include Liberace, Eddie Peabody, Spike Jones, Slim Gaillard, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Corinna Mura, Elvis Presley, Louis Prima & Keely Smith, Lani McIntyre & his Hawaiian Melodies, and many more rarely seen sonic curiosities! Across genre –but all on 16mm celluloid!– from vaudeville comedy to jazz jams to country honky-tonks, this mid-summer night’s hallucination is maniacally mixed by the Mission’s most obsessive media-archeologist. Cheap beer available.
