NW Film Center Announces Top Down: Rooftop Cinema Lineup

Posted by Erik Henriksen on Tue, Jun 18, 2013 at 2:59 PM

WYLD STALLYNS The truth is, Wyld Stallyns will never be a super band until we have Eddie Van Halen on guitar.
  • WYLD STALLYNS In time, their band will be most triumphant.

Every summer, the NW Film Center shows some movies on top of the Hotel deLuxe's parking structure; preceded by bands and with plentiful amounts of booze on hand, it's a fairly delightful way to spend a summer evening, provided you get there early enough to fight off the bluehairs and secure some good seats. This summer's Top Down: Rooftop Cinema series just got announced, and it's good, with one truly excellent selection:

July 25 – Thursday 8 p.m.
JOUR DE FÊTE
Band: Lincoln’s Beard

August 1 – Thursday 8 p.m.
DANCING OUTLAW I & II: JESCO GOES TO HOLLYWOOD
Band: Barry Brusseau

August 8 – Thursday 8 p.m.
ZELIG
Band: Jaime Leopold and the Short Stories

August 15 – Thursday 8 p.m.
BILL AND TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE
Band: TBA

August 22 – Thursday 8 p.m.
THE HUNGER
Band: Foreign Talks

August 29 – Thursday 8 p.m.
SWING TIME

Well okay, I guess that's fine and all, while Bill and Ted is cleary going to be the most fun, I wouldn't be surprised if The Hunger turns out to be pret—WAIT. WHAT. HOW CAN THE BAND BE "TBA" FOR BILL AND TED? Are you telling me you couldn't get every Portland band ever to do an awesome Wyld Stallyns tribute act? Are you even kidding me? How is this not happening?

Other than that, should be fun. More info's over at the nwfilm.org.
