MONKEES! MOVIE! MAYHEM!
Tuesday, December 30, 2014 @ 7:30 PM
Pittsburgh, PA — The Monkees HEAD to The Hollywood Theater in Dormont.
Join The Hollywood Theater as they celebrate the December 30th birthdays of Monkees Mike Nesmith and Davy Jones with a screening of the 1968 film HEAD and a musical performance by Pittsburgh’s own The Gothees.
Doors are at 7pm with a Monkees sugary-garage-psyche set by The Gothees at 7:30 followed immediately by HEAD. Tickets are $10 and partial proceeds from the night will go to supporting The Davy Jones Equine Memorial Foundation (founded in 2012 by Davy’s daughters Talia, Sarah, Jessica, and Annabel, to protect and care for the herd of largely retired and rescued racehorses he left behind.)
Tickets available at the door and in advance at ShowClix. The first 30 lucky folks through the door will receive an original ‘60s Monkees gum card as well as a Gothees CD featuring their take on the Nesmith-penned "Daily Nightly!"
About The Gothees: The Gothees are an entertaining and eclectic mix of performers-cum-musicians who have a unique and often perverse way of slanting the dominant paradigm of rock/pop music or something along those lines. Their music may be best described as an unsettling mixture of '60s pop distilled with a hint of '80s influences topped with a slight pinch of the punk aesthetic. Imagine the bubblegum pop tunes of The Monkees and The Archies interpreted by The Velvet Underground with Ian Curtis of Joy Division as lead vocalist...really.
