Event Pick: "Gimme Danger" at the Byrd Theatre

Nov. 13


Richmond is no stranger to the wild-man antics of Iggy Pop, who was involved in an infamous riot at the Mosque ballroom on Halloween in 1981. The usually bare-chested singer earned his legendary status as the frontman for Detroit’s punk rock progenitors, the Stooges, whose gritty, rags-to-respect story is examined on film by director Jim Jarmusch with humor and surprising depth. Through interviews with the inside players, you’ll find out how the heavy industrial clank sound of automotive manufacturing played a role in the development of the Stooges’ classic sound on genre-defining records such as “Fun House” and “Raw Power.” The James River Film Society and underwriters Plan 9 Records and Chop Suey Books present “Gimme Danger” for one night only Sunday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. at the Byrd Theatre. Tickets are $8 in advance, available at Plan 9 and Chop Suey, and $10 at the door.
