Movie Ticket Give-Away:
Everyday Sunshine (The Story Of Fishbone)
Our friends at Real Art Ways (click for show times and more info – including information on post-film discussion with the directors) have been nice enough to extend some more tickets our way to see a screening of this funky flick (seriously, it’s has to be funky, right?). The film-makers have been nice to us as well and have given us permission to give away a CD and a signed poster (by the band, not the film-makers). We have the tickets on hand and the CD and poster will be mailed to the winners.
We can have 2 winners (each will get a pair of tickets, a CD and a signed poster). All you have to do is come in and tell whoever is at the front counter one thing you like about Fishbone.
Here’s the rundown straight from the film’s website:
EVERYDAY SUNSHINE is a documentary about the band Fishbone, musical pioneers who have been rocking on the margins of pop culture for the past 25 years. From the streets of South-Central Los Angeles and the competitive Hollywood music scene of the 1980’s, the band rose to prominence, only to fall apart when on the verge of “making it.”
Laurence Fishburne narrates EVERYDAY SUNSHINE, an entertaining cinematic journey into the personal lives of this unique Black rock band, an untold story of fiercely individual artists in their quest to reclaim their musical legacy while debunking the myths of young Black men from urban America. Highlighting the parallel journeys of a band and their city, EVERYDAY SUNSHINE explores the personal and cultural forces that gave rise to California’s legendary Black punk sons that continue to defy categories and expectations.
At the heart of the film’s story is lead singer Angelo Moore and bassist Norwood Fisher who show how they keep the band rolling, out of pride, desperation and love for their art. To overcome money woes, family strife, and the strain of being aging Punk rockers on the road, Norwood and Angelo are challenged to re-invent themselves in the face of dysfunction and ghosts from a painful past.
