Scott Walker “30 Century Man” Miami Premiere Monday!

Monday night we are VERY excited to be presenting the official Miami premiere of an excellent music documentary! 30 Century Man chronicles the life and artistic career of music icon Scott Walker.  Though American, he was mostly successful in the UK, starting off as more of a crooner and then veering into the avant-garde.  The documentary was executive-produced by David Bowie and features interviews with him, Radiohead, Brian Eno, Damon Albarn, Johnny Marr and many more.

This BAFTA-nominated documentary explores Scott Walker’s music and career, from his early days as a gun-for-hire bass player on the Sunset Strip, to heartthrob mega-stardom in Britain’s 60’s pop scene, and finally his transformation to respected composer and avant-garde musician, reclusively shying away from the spotlight.

It was voted one of Time Out London’s 50 Greatest Music Films Ever.  Watch the trailer below and join us Monday night.  Seating at 8, film at 8.30 and we’ll even have a stack of copies to give away via raffle.  See you there!
