Eat|See|Hear Outdoor Movie: Spaceballs
August 27, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm
May the schwartz be with you.
In a distant galaxy, planet Spaceball has depleted its air supply, leaving its citizens reliant on a product called “Perri-Air.” In desperation, Spaceball’s leader President Skroob orders the evil Dark Helmet to kidnap Princess Vespa of oxygen-rich Druidia and hold her hostage in exchange for air. But help arrives for the Princess in the form of renegade space pilot Lone Starr and his half-man, half-dog partner, Barf.
TIME: Doors 5:30, Music 7:00, Movie 8:30
MUSICAL GUEST: Magic Bronson
Ask Magic Bronson what kind of music they make and they’ll tell you, “We honestly don’t know.” And that’s the way they like it. Call their music what you will — synth, indie, alternative, or electronica — one thing is certain: their music is addictive. “Wildlife,” their debut full length album, spent 7 weeks on the CMJ Top 200 and was named the 14th best LA record of 2014 by BuzzbandsLA. The record enjoyed a steady stream of TV/Film placements like “Graceland” (USA Network), “Suits” (USA Network), “You’re The Worst” (FX), Major League Baseball Network, and “Certain Women,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2016. Magic Bronson went independent in 2015 when they left their label and teamed up with Engineer Mike Malchicoff. The resulting EP is a hearty blend of five brand new tracks set to release 4/8/16
