Submitted by the Event Organizer
Turn it up all the way to 11 and come see a free outdoor screening of the hilarious rock ‘n roll spoof classic This is Spinal Tap on the Crescent Lawn on Oxford Street between Center and Addison Streets in Berkeley.
Shorts and other surprises begin at 7:30 pm, followed by the feature film at 8 pm.
Spinal Tap is back, touring behind their new LP, Smell the Glove. It’s Nigel, David, and Derek, the loudest metal trio in the UK, chunkin’ anthems like “Hell Hole,” “Big Bottom,” and “Sex Farm.” Neither death nor speed metal, but something more like ore, metal before metal. Reiner’s mock-doc sticks close to the Tap as their US tour, more a de-tour, circulates through failed shows and cancellations, until they amp up the attraction with the stoner Stonehenge, a mega-Druid spectacle. Push it to eleven. Not just loud, but volumes funnier than ten. Spinal Tap: let your mullets fly.
