Double Feature Salute to The Music of Athens, Georgia

Wednesday July 9, 2008 - 7:30pm
Egyptian Theatre, Hollywood


(1987, 82 mins, Directed by Tony Gayton)

Director Tony Gayton's immensely entertaining documentary includes interviews and performance footage from R.E.M., the B-52s, the Flat Duo Jets, the Bar-B-Que Killers, Love Tractor and more as well as conversations with amazing iconoclast artist Rev. Howard Finster and other bohemian individualists.

"Gayton's film reflects the energy and the self-made spirit of Athens. And in these days of assembly-line rock bands, that counts for a little more than something." - Richard Harrington, The Washington Post.


(2006, 87 mins, Cape Fear Filmworks, Directed by Tony Gayton)

Director Tony Gayton chronicles the rise and fall of spiritually-possessed psychobilly duo, the Flat Duo Jets, complete with invigorating performance footage of the pair - Dexter Romweber and Chris "Crow" Smith. Plus interviews with Dexter as well as musicians such as Jack White, Exene Cervenka, Cat Power, Mojo Nixon and others.

"Director Tony Gayton seems fully aware of the orthodox pitfalls of documentaries about quasi-obscure rock dignitaries, and he systematically avoids them." - Grayson Currin,
