Screen Not On The Green

Occasionally we post reviews of top music films such as Gimme Shelter (1970--Criterion Edition), Some Kind of Monster, and of course, The Room. So we were happy to learn about the NOMA Summer Screen. Here are the main details:

What: A film series featuring movies about bands and musicians.
Where: L St. between 2nd and 3rd Ave. NE (near the New York Ave Metro stop)
When: Every Wednesday night in June and July from 7-11 PM.
How Much: Absolutely nothing

The schedule includes flicks such as Buena Vista Social Club, I Am Trying To Break Your Heart (Wilco documentary), and our personal favorite DIG! which tells the story of The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Tonight they kick things off right with No Direction Home. It's the Martin Scorsese directed film about Bob Dylan between 1961 and 1966. If you haven't seen it yet I recommend you pack up your cooler, grab the lawn chairs, and watch it tonight.

Yankees - Red Sox tonight, or else I'd head over. Oh, and it'll probably rain tonight too (for the 323rd straight day).

Yea--pretty important game tonight. Only 161 other ones!

agree, baseball before August is sort of pointless

In the past sports on Potsy's big screen TV have won out over music events. I say go to the movie and following the game on your phone or TiVo it. Besides, everyone knows the Red Sox are going to crush them yet again.

Also, looks like there won't be many Fort Reno shows this year so you guys should enjoy the outdoor events while you can.

You know Potsy loves his baseball.

In his defense, Jimbromski, Posty and I saw this movie already in a creepy West Virginia motel room.

No questions please.

Sorry, POTSY. Not, POSTY.

Tom Yawkey is a DCRC reader? I've got goose bumps.
