Your Chance to See Giant-Sized Morrissey on a Screen Is Saturday

Posted By on Wed, Aug 28, 2013 at 11:30 AM

Earlier this year, former Smiths frontman Morrissey performed a show in Hollywood High School's auditorium, selling out the 1,800 seats in 12 seconds and delighting his shrieking fans by playing a stack of his hits like “Everyday Is Like Sunday” and “The Boy With The Thorn In His Side.” The Loft Cinema has been kind enough to bring some joy to the lives of some generally sad people wearing black clothes by screening the filmed version of that show this Saturday at 9 p.m. Plus, Zia Records will be there giving stuff away, so if you're cash-strapped and need a new copy of Viva Hate, this could be the best of all scenarios.

As a Morrissey bonus, you should really read Chuck Klosterman's article from 2002 in Spin (available on Google Books), where he examined the phenomenon of Moz's heavily Latino fanbase in Southern California. As someone who attended a Jaguares/Morrissey double bill in Anaheim ages ago, it's definitely a fascinating subculture.
