Rock That Uke Rocks Sacto

Tonight, Friday July 13, 2007, the world's premier Ukumentary, Rock That Uke, will be rocking Sacramento. Sez filmmaker Bill Robertson:
"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."

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."
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.
