film and music

Tonight there will be a screening of “Some Paradise”, Johnny St. Ours’ documentary on the WTO Protests that took place in Seattle in 1999, along with a performance by The Karl Rove. Here’s a little description from The Karl Rove website:

Johnny will show his 1999 WTO documentary around 7 PM. That film lasts about 1/2 an hour. Afterwards Johnny will field questions concerning the filming of the WTO demonstrations. Probably around 8:00 The Karl Rove will blast a fun-filled hour of loud political rock and roll. The MC5 disbanded 30 years ago, Dylan doesn’t care, Pete Seeger is too old, Phil Ochs croaked, Joan Baez is still too pretty…that leaves us to kick the collective asses of corruption, graft, hypocrisy, incompetence and blood lust. Later that same night we will wander the streets of Charlottesville looking for rich bolsheviks to buy us free drinks.

Check out some songs by The Karl Rove: “God Bless” | “Scrapezoid” | “Righteous American” | “Another Shitty Day in Funtown”.

Also tonight, Dust from A Thousand Years will play at the Tea Bazaar. Click on the link to hear some of their songs.

So begin making your way to the Downtown Mall!
