Post-film discussion with Cody Critcheloe!

In the ’90s, Lightning and Thunder were Milwaukee’s biggest husband and wife Neil Diamond cover band. This hilarious and gut-wrenching documentary follows the loving couple’s high moments (performing with Pearl Jam) and very low moments (accidents, marital turmoil, illness, and more). Virtually unseen since winning both audience and jury awards at the Slamdance Film Festival in 2008, it’s a fascinating look at a very different kind of performance art. The brilliant NYC avant-pop star, film, video and visual artist Cody Critcheloe (of SSION) is our guest tonight. He picked the film because “I love love stories. It’s tragic and beautiful and made me cry really hard. I’ve never forgotten it.” Turn on your heartlight and join us.
