October 8 – Sidemen: Long Road to Glory
6:30p at The Space
In the summer of 2008, a group of legendary bluesmen, some of the last surviving members of the Howlin Wolf and Muddy Waters bands, were brought together by director Scott Rosenbaum for a cameo appearance in his feature film, The Perfect Age of Rock n Roll. Pinetop Perkins, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith and Hubert Sumlin were cast for their authenticity and ability to underscore the films critical subplot, the evolution of rock n roll through the blues. During breaks in production, these bluesmen thrilled Rosenbaum with their tales of a lifetime spent on the road.
