Avid Rock ‘n Roll fan and all around music lover Hale Milgrim is putting on another carefully curated series of events featuring rare concert footage and insider stories aptly named Go to Hale. Milgrim has comprised these behind-the-scenes stories with the help of his friends. These films provide a musical journey over the last 50 years including memorable insights, commentary, and illumination. The shows will take place Friday nights through the summer at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.) — on June 16, August 11 and October 20. Each show has a specific topic. The June show will be Quips & Clips “ALL HALE: Rock ‘n Roll,” the August show is Neil Finn & Friends “Seven Worlds Collide/The Sun Came Out,” and the October show is Bill Graham… His Friends and his Enemies “Fillmore: The Last Days.”
Neil Finn & Friends will follow Crowded House frontman, Neil Finn. Finn has recorded many successful solo albums and has also assembled an amazing cast of musicians for the 7 Worlds Collide project. This screening also features a live recording and concert film from a series of five shows recorded at the St. James Theatre in 2001. This screening is not limited to Finn, it will also include Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien and Phil Selway, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, The Smiths’ Johnny Marr, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Glenn Kotche, John Stirratt and Pat Sansone.
Bill Graham… His Friends and his Enemies will feature none other than the legendary concert promoter Bill Graham. He brought together some of the biggest acts of the 60s through the 90s captured in the fantastic concert film Fillmore: The Last Days. This film includes performances from bands like Santana, The Grateful Dead, Hot Tuna, Quicksilver Messenger Service and the New Riders of the Purple Sage.
