‘Just Like Being There’ Screening w/ Maritime
There’s at least one element of rock culture that hasn’t been radically transformed by the Internet: concert posters. First-time director Scout Shannon filmed a love letter to the many artists who design these colorful posters with his documentary Just Like Being There, which premiered at last year’s SXSW festival. He’ll be on hand tonight for a Q&A session following a 7:30 p.m. screening of the film at Hotel Foster. The night kicks off with a small poster fair where local artists will display and sell their prints beginning at 6 p.m., then closes with a 10 p.m. performance from Milwaukee indie-rock vets Maritime.
