!! HELD OVER - NOW THROUGH FEB 5 - OPERA PLAZA !!
SF Bay Guardian: “…the chief glory of 30 Century Man is the lavish setting that it affords Walker’s recordings…This listening party effect is intoxicating.”SF Weekly: “The movie is a light at the end of Walker’s poorly lit, twisting tunnel, giving valuable insight into this venerated nonconformist.”
“…the man, the music, the impact and the influence - a story from the other side of a parallel universe…a fine new rock documentary.” The San Francisco Chronicle

And after the SATURDAY NIGHT “Drifting & Tilting” performance (***note date change from the previously scheduled Friday night***), yours truly will be spinning Scott favorites & rarities at the Barbican Lates Lounge, right there in the foyer/bar. Come by and pitch in a request…”Stormy” anyone?

She’s still working non-stop to get the film out in the US and beyond and I couldn’t have done it without her. Official nominee list below…
