PELHAM, N.Y. -- An advance screening of the new music documentary "We Are Twisted F***ing Sister!" is being shown at The Picture House Regional Film Center (TPH) on Thursday, Feb. 18.
A post-film discussion and Q and A with the band’s guitarist Jay Jay French and film’s director Andrew Horn follows. French founded Twisted Sister and is the original guitarist.
The screening takes place at 7:30 p.m. The Q and A will be moderated by TPH director of programming and marketing, Clayton Bushong.
In the mid-1970s, Twisted Sister claimed glitter rock for their own, cross-dressing their way to headlining every club within 100 miles of New York City. With gigs six nights a week, they were said to be the most successful live bar band of suburban New York, selling out 5,000-seat shows fueled by aggressive metal set lists and stage presence.
Their big break came in 1983, and they went on to become one of the biggest glam rock bands of the decade. Their over-the-top live shows drew sell-out crowds and their music videos defined the early MTV network.
"We Are Twisted F***ing Sister!" is the story of the 10 years leading up to the band’s career, recounted by the band themselves, their managers and their biggest fans.
Jay Jay French is famous for his role as the founding member and one of the guitarists of Twisted Sister. He is also an artist manager, record producer, song writer, keynote speaker, and a columnist for Inc. com.
Andrew Horn’s creative career is wide ranging, from making films on post-modern dance in New York to writing for one of Germany’s most popular soap operas.
Tickets to the special advance screening and discussion are $15 for general admission, $12 for members, and $10 for students and seniors. Click here for the link to buy tickets or visit the box office at 175 Wolfs Lane.
