play loud! helps to save local San Francisco radio station KUSF
Monday, April 9
In a secret three-way deal the University of San Francisco (USF) entered into a contract to sell KUSF 90.3 FM a year ago last January. Tonight is a benefit for SAVE KUSF, a group that is imploring the FCC to block the sale, the closure of which has been encouragingly held up for over one year. So as Brad's mom strongly encourages: come rock like a f*** in’ maniac! Tonight’s entertainment includes:
Monks - The Transatlantic Feedback
The monks were 5 American GI’s in cold war Germany who billed themselves as the anti-Beatles; they were heavy on feedback, nihilism and electrical banjo. Dietmar Post’s genre-blending doc illustrates the pop music phenomenon in its political, social and cultural historic contexts, while also revealing the monks project as the first marriage between art and popular music, months before Andy Warhol showed up with the Velvet Underground. Dir: Dietmar Post and Lucia Palacios 2006, 100 min, USA /Germany/Spain.
A simple, disturbing and great short film by Monks director, Dietmar Post, Based on the play by Michael O'Donnell. 1998, 16mm, 12 min, USA /Germany/Spain.
Crime + Punishment
An abbreviated history of politics and dissent from the Eisenhower Reagan eras by Stephen Parr / Oddball Film + Video. 18 mins.
