Lee Ving and Get Crazy! (1983)

I can’t believe I was soooo slow to post this one. This is an obvious choice for this site: punk rock and movies. How could I be so late, and aloof? I blame society. But anyway, Cinematic Void screened Get Crazy at the Los Feliz 3 on December 11, 2021, and three guests, director Allan Arkush, Lori Eastside (Nada), and Lee Ving (Piggy) were there as well for a Q&A. Ving would break into song, mostly Italian operas, and the occasional “1-2-3-4! 1-2-3-4!”. As you can see in the photo below. The Q&A was great. Allan Arkush has a million stories, and you want to hear them all, and Lee and Lori held their own as well. I won an autographed copy of the blue ray for answering a trivia question pertaining to Iggy Pop. Who knew that a steady diet of rock magazines in my youth would reap rewards?
