Thu 4/2 WFMU Movie Night hosted by Rich Hazelton
Privilege is Peter Watkins’ 1967 film about power, celebrity, the corruption of
church and state, and conformity. It is also a great rock ‘n’ roll film starring
Paul Jones, who sang “Do Wah Diddy Diddy” with Manfred Mann, and
Jean Shrimpton, one of the first superstar models who helped introduce the miniskirt.
Upon initial release, J. Arthur Rank, the national theatre circuit in England
would not show the film due to its “immoral nature".
This is WFMU and we really don’t give a crap about its “immoral nature.”
A great rock ‘n’ roll film is a great rock ‘n’ roll film and we’re showing it!

Thu 5/7 WFMU Movie Night presented by Miniature Minotaurs
Object Collection Live dubbed Movie Night
In 1992 a piece-of-shit film called Under S1ege came out.
In 2015, Object Collection live-dubs it (featuring Smell-O-Vision!).
Come all the way back to the early 90's. When neo-fascist trash ruled the cinema.
When the world and Steven Se4ga1 were young and fresh.
When MTV taught us to like a slightly different style of bands with boys and guitars.
When history had just ended. When we were all placed permanently Under Siege.
by Kara Feely and Travis Just
8 PM-10 PM  $10  Monty Hall (web site) 43 Montgomery Street  Jersey City  201-521-1416  Buy tickets 
Fri 5/8 JOSÉ JAMES - YESTERDAY I HAD THE BLUES: THE MUSIC OF BILLIE HOLIDAY (web site) 7:30 PM  $35  Harlem Stage Gatehouse 150 Convent Avenue  Manhattan     
Thu 5/21 Revenge of the Mekons
A documentary feature by Joe Angio
Political provocateurs. Social agitators. Punk’s reigning contrarians. The Mekons have been called all this and more.
Revenge of the Mekons chronicles the unlikely story of a group of radical British art students who formed in the
first blast of punk rock in 1977.
Adored with cult-like devotion by fans and critics alike, the Mekons have redefined themselves and their music
repeatedly over the years while staying true to the punk ethos. But the Mekons are more than just a band.
They’re also an art collective whose members make art individually, collectively and in collaboration with other avant-garde artists.
A rich and illuminating account of a fascinating, criminally under-recognized band, Revenge of the Mekons is a lively, inspiring and entertaining film—with killer music, to boot!
