Teen-A-Go-Go, A Doc About Local '60s Garage Rock Scene, Makes Rare Appearance Tomorrow
Three long years ago I noted that Fort Worth filmmaker Melissa Kirkendall was in the process of wrapping her doc Teen-A-Go-Go, a history of those good old days. And while the film -- which features the likes of Bugs Henderson (ex of Mouse and the Traps), Butthole Surfer King Coffey, friend of the show Joe Nick Patoski and others -- is available for the low, low price of $10 on DVD, save for an appearance at the '08 Lone Star International Film Festival it's seldom been seen on local big screens since its completion. Tomorrow night, the Texas Theatre rectifies that with a 7 p.m. screening that'll be attended by the filmmakers and none other than John Rody.
