Double Feature: Ultra rare screening! THE PRETTY THINGS: MIDNIGHT TO SIX 1965-1970, 2010, Reelin’ in the Years Productions. Dir. David Peck. Don't miss the rare opportunity to see this unreleased documentary! Featuring 20 full-length performances, including the Pretty Things’ historic, riot-inducing R&B period; their highly influential, rock-opera/psychedelic “SF Sorrow” period; and their proto-heavy metal “Parachute” period. Between songs are new interviews with the original band members (Phil May, Dick Taylor, John Stax, Skip Alan, Wally Waller and Jon Povey) who tell stories and recount the fascinating, tumultuous and controversial history of the band. The only documentary ever to focus on the Pretty Things, one of the most significant yet unsung rock groups in history. [DVD]
