A/V Geeks Sing the Blues

Amazing 16mm Gems From the Archive Featuring Blues Musician Performances

Sunday, June 30
Show | 8pm // Doors | 7pm

A/V Geeks invites you to treat your eyes and ears to a smorgasbord of
breathtaking 16mm short films about the Blues – culled and curated
from our massive film archive. From the 1940s through the 1980s, this
one of a kind program features the legendary likes of Mississippi Fred
McDowell, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Hadda Brooks, Reverend Gary Davis and
more. These beautiful rarities contain not only incredible music, but
stunning visuals, personal and in-depth portraits of brilliant but
tortured artists, and haunting footage of the Harlem, Mississippi and
Texas of yesteryear. It’s a unique cinematic trip back in time to see
Blues greats in their element and their prime.
