Enough already!

Not like I haven't spent enough time downtown, but it looks like there's a great film about Billie Holliday at the Alamo Downtown tonight at 7pm. Anyone interested?

BILLIE HOLIDAY: FROM FIRST TO LAST
The one and only Lady Day in all of her film appearances. Includes the complete "Sound of Jazz" television show from 1957 which features the greatest assemblage of jazz talent ever assembled before a camera. As an added bonus, the show starts with the greatest jazz film ever made: "Jammin the Blues" from 1944.

OMG...I wonder if that will make it to NYC?!
I'm a huge Lady Day fanatic.

It's actually being presented by Dennis Nyback:
" a former projectionist and mystery bookshop owner who pioneered a whole new school of kamikaze film exhibition with his legendary micro-cinemas The Pike Street Cinema (Seattle) and The Lighthouse Cinema (New York), Nyback has thrilled and befuddled audiences the world over with his vast and obscure collection of 16mm film."

Have you seen The Lighthouse Cinema? And...

so WHEN are you coming to AUSTIN??!!
