"Movies on a Big Screen, a production of Shiny Object Digital Video, Inc., will present a special Sacramento screening my quirky, award-winning documentary about the modern ukulele scene, "Rock That Uke."And if that ain't cheap enough for you, check this out, Robert Armstrong, the Cheap Suit Serenader, Mickey Rat creator, RTU featured artist--and Ukulelia's Official-Fine-Artiste-in-Residumps--will perform a set of uke music after the screening and Q&A. Across from the Old Spaghetti Factory dumpster. For real.
The screening is Friday, July 13 at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $5. Real movie popcorn and bottled water are $1 each! The screening venue is The Fools Foundation Art Gallery, located in Midtown Sacramento, 1025 19th Street @ 19th & K, down in the basement off the alley.
I'll be on hand for a Q&A after the screening. The doc will be preceded by "Cinema du Ukulélé," a collection of ukulele shorts that includes Ryan McFaul's cinema classic "Gay Boyfriend," starring The Hazzards (formerly The Ukes of Hazzard)!
Ukuleles! Popcorn and water for a buck each! What more could you possibly want on a Friday night? Well, you know--I mean in Sacramento."
