THE KIDS OF WIDNEY HIGH
The world-renowned Kids of Widney High are a group of young adults with developmental disabilities who write, record and perform their own unique brand of rock music. They have been compared to Daniel Johnston and Wesley Willis. For the first time in their illustrious underground career, the Kids are embarking on a full-fledged multimedia tour up the West Coast in which they will be showcasing their artistic endeavors, which include short films that evoke the "gaze" avant-garde aesthetic of Stan Brakhage, Harry Smith and Jonas Mekas. The Kids will be performing after the screening for all audience members who wish to stay and boogie.
