Eat|See|Hear Outdoor Movie: Casablanca **75th Anniversary**
May 13, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 11:00 pm
“Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine.”
During the early years of World War II, in the coastal city of Casablanca, Morocco a cynical American expatriate meets a former lover, with unforeseen complications. Casablanca attracts people from all over the world, particularly Nazi-occupied Europe. Many are transients trying to get out of Europe; a few are just trying to make a buck. Most of them — gamblers and refugees, Nazis, resistance fighters, and plain old crooks — find their way to Rick’s Café Américain
TIME: Doors 5:30, Music 7:00, Movie 8:30
MUSICAL GUEST: Bird Concerns
Bird Concerns is a band of four friends who make eclectic pop music. Unlike many musical acts of today, Bird Concerns is not focused on any individual in the group, but instead on a collective sound. All of the members sing and write music for the band. The interweaving guitars, rich vocal harmonies, and deep grooves come together to create a sum much greater than the parts. The band’s songwriting is heavily influenced by classic groups such as the Beach Boys, The Zombies, and Simon & Garfunkel, but remains fresh in it’s sonic pallet, pulling from garage rock, shoegaze, and disco sounds to create something both familiar and refreshed.
