Scorpio Rising

Woodland Pattern surrenders to the occasion and presents two free screenings of Kenneth Angers Scorpio Rising, the seminal Underground classic, the first music video ever, maybe, one of the finest treatises on fan worship (pop and otherwise), and the best biker film ever. Featuring bikers, Brando, and the King of Kings. Proclaims Anger: "A 'high' view of the Myth of the American Motorcyclist. The machine as totem, from toy to terror. Thanatos in chrome and black leather."

With music by Little Peggy March, The Angels, Bobby Vinton, Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, The Crystals, The Rondells, Kris Jensen, Claudine Clark, Gene McDaniels, The Surfari.

Accompaniment also from all the hogs in the world out on Locust Street celebrating the 100th Birthday of Milwaukee Iron.
