Need a break from all the Christmas music? Head to the Hollywood Theater on Dec. 22nd for a rock n’ roll film event.
DJ Zombo presents Urgh! A Music War, a cult music documentary chock full of punk, post-punk, and New Wave goodness. Directed by Derek Burbidge, the 1982 concert film features performances by some of the biggest and most innovative acts of the day, including The Go-Go’s, XTC, Devo, The Cramps, Oingo Boingo, Dead Kennedys, Gary Numan, Klaus Nomi (pictured above), Wall of Voodoo, Echo & the Bunnymen, and The Police.
A DJ set by Zombo will take place before the screening. There will also be a live Cramps cover karaoke band in the lobby covering all of the band’s album Bad Music For Bad People. Music begins at 8:30 p.m. followed by the film at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $7.
