Rock ReelingNovember 10, 2008
You gotta give it up to this year’s staff at Reeling. With the inclusion of Pansy Divsion: Life in a Gay Rock Band and Bruce La Bruce’s Otto; or, Up WIth Dead People (which bordered on brilliant, BTW), this year’s GLBT film fest in the Windy City is trying to redefine what a queer film fest can be. One of the more interesting additions is the queer music showcases, which aim to highlight talented queers in the music business: showing music videos in between live performances. Here is what’s up for Rock Reeling:
- Wednesday, November 12, 2008 – Rock Reeling: Women’s Music Showcase – 9:00 PM, Spyners Pub, 4623 N. Western – View Rock Reeling’s music videos between live sets by visiting musicians Sean Wiggins (www.myspace.com/seanwiggins) and Edie Carey (www.ediecarey.com), while munching on scrumptious appetizers at the very welcoming local bar, Spyners. Two drink tickets will be given to each music lover, good for Blue Moon Beer or Three Olives Vodka cocktails. Admission: $10 ($8 members).
- Thursday, November 13, 2008 – Rock Reeling: Men’s Music Showcase – 9:00 PM, Hamburger Mary’s, 5400 N. Clark – Enjoy the awesome atmosphere of Mary’s Attic as we bring recognition to the men’s indie music frontier featuring Detroit music sensation, Sean Z (www.myspace.com/seanzmusic) and music videos featuring artists from around the world.
