You're Lookin' At Country: Hillbillies in Hollywood Edition!
Jul 12, 2012
(Live music and DVD, 80 min)
Sponsored by Easy Street Records
Join us for cold beers, hot live music and sweet celluloid memories, from a time when resplendent country music stars set down their guitars to cavort on the big screen, in everything from blockbusters to anything-for-a-buck B movies. Thrill to the sight of Kris Kristofferson's long and tawny torso, shirtless. Shudder as you witness Johnny Cash turn into a crazed psycho killer. Gaze into the gauzy beauty of Dolly's face, pre-op. Feel the Texas heat as old Willie puts the moves on a young and sexy Amy Iving. All this plus Connie Smith, Waylon Jennings, Ferlin Husky, Bill Anderson and perhaps, just maybe, Little Jimmie Dickens. They all were in the movies, a long, long time ago.
Special musical guest: Singer/songwriter/guitar god Ian Moore will play a few unforgettable songs and regale us with a tale or two from his own movie career.
