Want a snapshot of the Nashville indie scene circa 1994, as well as a visual record of the legendary Lucy's Record Shop? Turn out 9 p.m. Monday night at The Basement for a free screening of Suki Hawley and Michael Galinsky's Nashville-shot cult movie Half-Cocked
, featuring members of Lambchop, The Grifters, Ruby Falls and June of 44 along with local scenesters in the background as extras. (Ian Svevonius from the Make-Up has a scene-stealing supporting role.) Shot partly at Lucy's, the punk picaresque follows a girl who steals her brother's van and instruments and sets off on a "tour" of the Southeast's underground scenes, from Louisville to Music City.
DVD is coming out on Rumur, Galinsky's distribution imprint, in a double feature with the filmmakers' 1998 film Radiation
—a so-real-it-hurts slice of indie-rock verite in which a broke Spanish music promoter leaves a touring band hanging while he tries to hustle up some scratch. Hawley and Galinsky went on to make the acclaimed 2002 doc Horns and Halos
, about the discredited George W. Bush biographer James Hatfield and the forces that aligned against him.
