Rock 'n Tokyo

Location: Fools Foundation - 1025 19th St. Off of K St, between 19th and 20th, next to the back-end of Old Spaghetti Factory.

While most of Japanese society still preaches uniformity and order, there is an important underground world where people lead a freer life. This is the Tokyo of “Rock N Tokyo.” This recently completely doc by Pamela Valente which just had its California premiere at the SF Independent Film Fest, is packed with live footage of the leather-clad legends Guitar Wolf, the wildly fun garage rock of the 5.6.7.8’s (featured, of course, in “Kill Bill”), the naked punk mayhem of the incredible Jet Boys and Nine playing at a mall. Interspersed throughout is footage of various members from the bands shopping, flipping through porn mags, hanging out and even singing karaoke. But really, this film is all about the incredible live performances, and it definitely delivers. Mostly in Japanese, with English subtitles mostly present during interview and spoken segments.

We are doing regular weekly film screenings with Fools Foundation on Fridays at 7 PM - most are $5 (unless otherwise noted in advance), and will have filmmakers out from time to time. Digital projection on to a large screen. Seating is on folding chairs - feel free to bring a pillow or cushion - or even your own folding chair!
