Special Bonus Screening: Wilco Documentary
"If this show ends up being one of the greatest rock and roll concerts of all time, I'm afraid its going to have an asterisk next to it. Because I'm on steroids..."
You may have thought OFFscreen was finished with "Inland Empire," but we have been working behind the scenes to bring a new Wilco concert documentary, "Ashes of American Flags" to Charlottesville next Friday, May 1st. Local fans who remember Wilco's October 2007 performance at the Pavillion will have the chance to get a more intimate view of this legendary band in action.
More than a concert video, "Ashes of American Flags" combines HD video from performances with elements a road movie and personal interviews with all band members, as they travel the highways from Tulsa Oklahoma, to a final, raucous performance at the familiar 9:30 club in Washington D.C.
The film will be introduced by producer Brendan Canty. If the name sounds familiar, that is because Mr. Canty was the drummer for D.C. greats Fugazi. We hope that you will kick off your weekend right and come out for this extra-special presentation. "Ashes of American Flags" will give you a front row seat to one of the best live acts going.
Note that this film is screening at a special time: Friday, May 1 at 7 PM at the Newcomb Hall Theater (map).
