In response to the recent heat wave, Books Through Bars sponsors a few Friday night "summer in the city" films in Freebird's un-airconditioned backyard.
This Friday, July 23, at sunset (approx 8:15 pm) they screen Do The Right Thing, that classic Brooklyn sweatfest of overheated temperatures and tempers.
On Friday, August 13, at sunset, athey will show Dog Day Afternoon featuring Al Pacino's sweltering, scene-chewing performance. It's based on the botched holdup of a Brooklyn bank in 1972.
And don't forget the BTB sponsored event on Friday, July 30, at 7:30 pm, when Eric Davidson discusses WE NEVER LEARN: The Gunkpunk Undergut, 1988-2001 and screens rare (no doubt hotter-than-a-match-head) concert footage from the period. Mike Edison (drummer for the Raunch Hands and GG Allin and the author of I Have Fun Everywhere I Go) will introduce.
