BOB AND THE MONSTER (Feb. 22, 7pm)
Q&A with Director Keirda Bahruth & Producer Rick Ballard after the screening
Bob and the Monster is about a guy everybody wanted to be around until he became the guy everybody assumed had died. In the 1980s, Bob Forrest’s band, Thelonious Monster, was at the center of a music scene that included the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane’s Addiction. The band’s raw sound, wild shows and deeply personal lyrics appealed directly to the young Los Angeles punk crowd. So did the drugs. Bob and the Monster transcends the stereotype of heroin addicted rock star and reveals a more personal message. Bob’s story is a living testament to the heights of human courage and the ability to shape your own destiny. Directed by Keirda Bahruth, 85 minutes.
