On Saturday, March 2, ATA Gallery’s flagship OTHER CINEMA series continues into its Spring season.

Featured is the NorCal debut of Derek Emerson’s doc on the eccentric world of One-Man-Bands! This heart-pumping plunge off a curvy West Virginian highway leads to the infamous Rockabilly-Wild-Man Hasil Adkins, and other misfit innovators: Bob Log III, former bus-driver-turned-punk Delta Blues man; Washboard Hank on his kitchen-sink tuba; and the Mysterious Asthmatic Avenger.

Witness Eric Royer’s self-built 5-piece bluegrass band, the Lonesome Organist, and King Louie, the hurricane of sound!

Let Me Be Your Band is preceded by local solo acts: guest emcee Russ Forster, the precocious Henry Plotnick, and the marvelous singing-bowls of Idaho Joe. Plus 16mm clips of earlier “autonomous” musicians!!
