FINALLY. The moment you've all been waiting for. Move night. The backyard is a perfect backdrop to watch a projected movie onto a screen while under a canopy of pecan trees. Maybe add in a Michelada or a seasonal shrub/Topo Chico mix?? Perfection.
For our inaugural event, we decided to choose the amazing 1978 film ROCKERS by Theodoros Bafaloukos. It follows the story of Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace, a local drummer who decides to try and make a little extra money by becoming a record distributor and gets caught up in some drama. Almost all of the actors in the film are authentic and well-known musicians in the Jamiacan scene including Burning Spear, Gregory Isaacs, Big Youth, Dillinger, and Jacob Miller. Aaaaaaaaaaaand the soundtrack is AMAZING.
It's the perfect first movie. Come and join us in the yard for some solid good times!!!
