Explore Christian Rock @ Schubas

A movie for free? That's just crazy talk, yet, Schubas and Reckless Records are doing it. Tonight at Schubas Tavern, drop in and see a DVD Screening of "Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music?" plus a special performance by The Detholz. According to Schubas: "The film won the Audience Choice award at the Chicago Underground Film Festival, where it premiered on August 22nd, 2004. "Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music?" is a feature-length film about the artistic, religious and cultural phenomenon of Christian rock music. The film features concert and interview footage of underground and nationally recognized bands in the Christian rock community. It also includes commentary from fans, musicians, observers and critics from within the Christian rock scene, as well as from the "secular" music community." Yes, it's about Christian rock music, but it's being screened in a bar for free. Hilarity is sure to ensue. Schubas is located at the corner of Belmont and Southport.
