I'll be appearing at a new Chicago-based music-and-movies festival called CIMMfest this weekend. Specifically, I'll be on a panel debating the Greatest Rock Movie Ever Made. The details, from the site:
What's the best rock movie ever made? By the end of this knock-down, drag-out verbal brawl, we should have that question answered. Our esteemed panelists are JR Jones, film critic from the Chicago Reader; Jim DeRogatis, author, music critic from the Chicago Sun-Times, and co-host of "Sound Opinions"; Arnie Bernstein, film historian and award-winning author; Keith Phipps, film critic for The Onion; and Lech Kowalski, filmmaker and CIMMfest jury chair.
So, there you have it. Oh yeah, it's at the Chicago Cultural Center's G.A.R. Annex on Sunday from 3:30 to 5:00. Show up and witness the awkwardness!
