Come rediscover the rowdy days (and nights!) of the East Village of the Fillmore East Days as the Brokers Partnership of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation screens the film Get Crazy. This campy satire—from the mind of director Alan Arkush—is packed with drugs, booze, and rock and roll. The film features Malcolm McDowell and Ed Begley Jr., with cameos by the likes of Lou Reed, John Densmore, and Fabian. Come join in the laughs (audience shout-outs will be encouraged) for this 90-minute screening, followed by an in-depth discussion about the film and the East Village cultural and music scene. Moderated by culture critic Jesse Kornbluth, the panel will feature actors and production staff from the film along with Joshua White, the director of the Fillmore’s famed Joshua Light Show.
The craziness continues at Veselka Bowery, where unlimited drinks and appetizers, including famous Veselka pierogies (which sustained many a late-night reveler during Fillmore East Days), are on tap.
