$3 Cover, cheap booze, two classic horror movies and (literally) the best Pastrami in L.A. (same pastrami as Lang**’s)
Before CGI, before John Carpenter and James Cameron, and Rob Rodriguez,there were the outrageous madmen pioneers of gore and shock in the 1960s—George Romero, and Herschel Gordon Lewis : “the godfather of gore” and creator of “splatter” movies.
Imagine it’s 1963. You live in a yellow house, watch “Father knows best”, “I love Lucy” , Disneyland is only four years old, and your only fear is The Commies.
Then one night someone whispers :”Have you heard of Blood Feast? …of course not, its 1963. This is the movie that started it all. It was meant to shock and appall. It was in fact banned in many theaters or given an “X” rating. It’s director, Herschel Gordon Lewis was a bored former English professor who blazed a new trail. ….a trail of blood!
Variety’s May 6, 1964 review termed the film a “totally inept shocker”, “incredibly crude and unprofessional from start to finish” and “an insult even to the most puerile and salacious of audiences”.
Doors open at 7pm, movie rolls at 8pm—DJ ASTRO 138 WILL BE SPINNING THE ACTUAL SOUNDTRACK OF BLOOD FEAST.
Afterward, it’s DJ ASTRO 138 spinning great 50s/60’s rare garage rock, surf, hickory, weirdobilly and whatever else he pulls out of his hat.
We will then run “she devils on wheels ” on the background with DJ music over it just for a fun visual as we party the rest of the night.
This is going to be really fun, so don’t miss it!
