The Treasures of Long Gone John
Directed by Gregg Gibbs
2006, 90 min
West Coast Premiere
Roxie Cinema Fri, May 12, 2006, 7p
This is the juicy profile of the groundbreaking American culture scenes of D.I.Y. indie music and lowbrow/pop surrealist art. As the founder of the Sympathy For the Record Industry label, Long Gone John has single-handedly released over 750 records without ever signing a contract and has helped launch the careers of the White Stripes, Hole, The Dwarves and more.
Inspired by John's immense art collection, the scope of the film broadens to expose the expanding popularity of lowbrow art, and its bible, Juxtapoz Magazine, through a vast assortment of interviews with artists, collectors and musicians of this popular culture once revered as "fringe."
Please join us for the Opening Night After Party at OnSix Gallery (66 Sixth Street at Market). Free admission with your movie ticket stub. The party goes until 2am!
