Description: Kings County Cinema Society happily presents a strong contender for midnight movie of the decade: Tetsuro Takeuchi’s Wild Zero (2000, Japan, 98 min), “jet rock ‘n’ roll movie” for the ages. Punk rockers Guitar Wolf star as themselves, dress like 50’s greasers, cruise in fire-spewing muscle cars and battle armies of zombies in the midst of a touching story of budding transexual love. Japanese trailer
The film will be followed immediately by live sets on the main stage @ Littlefield:
Worst Case Ontario, a New York City indie outfit, plays antagonistic sludge rock. Messy, noisy rock in the vein of Nada Surf, Spoon and I Am Kloot.
Lower East Side trio Ghost Ghost deftly swings between styles and manages to own each one. A cross between Fugazi and ‘Thunder Road’ era Springsteen. They will be joined onstage by Brooklyn painter Charlie Kemmerer, who will complete a live painting within the set.
Details: Wednesday 11/4, doors 7pm, movie @8, bands at 9:30/ 10:30 $5$ +21+
happy hour drink specials till 8, free popcorn all night

Many thanks to Tom Cryan for subbing in.
In 1954, the Japanese director Ishiro Honda created a monster. Quite literally.
28 Godzilla films later, it remains stalwart as one of the longest running film franchises of all time, and I am sure that anyone who has seen at least one of these films has a favorite line, lovingly dubbed with less than accurate english translations.
Check out the trailer, and come out tonight to witness the film which started it all, and has been the progenitor of hundreds of other giant monster films (many of which costar the great lizard lord himself)
Details: Vox Pop Cafe, 8pm, 1022 Cortelyou Rd. Q to Cortelyou. voxpopcafe.com Live music likely to follow.
Also, if you’re still hungry for more after this gem, check out Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster. A personal favorite.
Hope to see you there!
