Calling All Film Lovers: SOS–Save the Tivoli!

Click on the poster above to visit the Kickstarter page for Save The Tivoli.

Love your local independent theatre or lose it fast. The Tivoli theatre MUST go digital by or go dark because the industry demands it.  Even though everything works just fine, some folks need to make more dimes by forcing new techno toys on everyone else. Jerry Harrington explains all on the Kickstarter video while giving a tour of this wonderful film theatre treasure in Kansas City, Missouri’s Westport area.  This is a truly community based film theatre. Please help save it by sharing the news with others who support independent film and businesses.

Thank you,

Eva

This is the only place in town to see films like Muscle Shoals and Othello and Wadja and Nosferatu and opera and dance and…  Yeah, you name it and Jerry Harrington brings it to town like none other. It was the only place to Fruitvale Station and Beasts of the Southern Wild. Without the Tivoli it will be more chain store multiplex wasteland for film folks who want more than brain-dead humor and gore galore from the film industry.

–all about FREEdom-yours, mine, ours–

Okay, it’s KKFI all night long for moi as Ben Johnson takes on the assualt against OUR freedom–if you care, blog and listen, and call in if you wish,  to www.kkfi.org    community radio  streaming live around the globe… 12:29 am in the great midwest of america…it’s cool tonight, the dudes are hyped, and maybe there will be a suicide audio at some point..here be me ears …”all about that freedom thing”

 

disclaimer: the suicide audio mentioned above involves a collection of divererse audio materials connected thematically and mixed at will–like something a kid would do with soft drinks, ice cream, fruit and ice… just making sure we’re all on the same ‘page’.

Shemekia Copeland’s “Never Going Back”

Some times you just have to put aside all economic stress and put out some bucks to support what trips your musical trap–especially when you KNOW you won’t be hearing much of it on the corporate radio stations. Even though Copeland wowed David Letterman on late night television with her performance–and her band’s smokin’ hot performance–of “Never Going Back to Memphis”–her cd could only be found in my Independent Music store. Apparently none of the corporate commerical establishment bothered to guage either Letterman’s or the clearly appreciative studio audience’s reaction to Copeland’s truly wonderful rendition of the title song. Or maybe they just don’t think anyone would put out for such a dark dark number.  Anyway, the title song resonates on the fourth track of the cd which opens with a social/politically aware track.  While there’s not quite the entertaining naughtiness of her “Wicked” cd–there’s more polished vocals and a different quality of engagement about “Never Going Back”‘s tracks, eg “Dirty Water,”  there’s still plenty of Copeland’s big woman passionate sound in abundance.  “Never Going Back to Memphis” alone is worth the price of admission.  Any woman who has ever gotten entangled with the WRONG sort of man can relate to the song story.  Also, it’s clear throughout the cd’s offerings that Copeland and the Band are engaged in a mutually responsive and supportive relationship that pays and pays the listener back again and again.
