two very special announcements today …
Detroit Techno legend JUAN ATKINS will be DJing after our showcase at the Drake Hotel this Thursday, December 29.
if you aren’t familiar with his work, just wiki it up:
“Juan Atkins (born December 9, 1962) is an American musician. He is widely credited as the originator of techno music, specifically Detroit techno along with Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson.”
here’s one of his most widely known tracks, “No UFO’s”:
we’ll also be screening the 1977 Japanese film HAUSU (aka HOUSE) — I first encountered it at a rep cinema in NY, as part of a theatrical re-release that proved much more popular than it’s original release (since everyone is crazy now.) watch, and make sure you make it till the scene where the girls are floating on the door in the sea of blood in the living room trying to escape the animated cat with lightning bolts in it’s eyes.
here’s the trailer:
the original, dreamy, creamy lineup for the show is still intact:
and all for $5, which is completely absurd.
