In Memory of Davy Jones – “HEAD” at The Creative Center, Friday March 9

On Friday, March 9, 2012 at 8:00 p.m., I’m taking this opportunity to memorialize the late Davy Jones by screening The Monkees’ groundbreaking film “HEAD” written by Jack Nicholson and Bob Raefelson with all-star cast.  Directed by Bob Raefelson, starring The Monkees, cameos by Frank Zappa, Dennis Hopper, Annette Funicello, Victor Mature and more. The Criterion Collection says, “A kaleidoscopic satire that’s movie homage media send-up, concert movie, and antiwar cry all at once.”  $5 suggested donation.  The Creative Center is located at 900 Sixteenth Street, Greensboro, NC 27405, room 213.  Feel free to bring refreshments (yeah, you can bring beer and wine).  Help memorialize Davy with a great, mindblowing film.  Don’t miss this event!  The Creative Center’s website is
