3rdSHOW

After the phenomenal success of two sold-out shows, we are elated to announce a third and final West Coast performance by Italian prog rock pioneers Goblin playing live on October 21st at the Egyptian Theatre.

Tickets go on sale at 10 AM, Saturday July 27th through  BPT_logo_main

Playing Los Angeles for the first time in their 40 year history, Goblin will perform a full, live set pulled from their most iconic scores, including: Dario Argento’s giallo classics Suspiria, Tenebrae, and Deep Red, George A. Romero’s seminal Dawn of the Dead,Roller, Il fantastico Viaggio del Bagarozzo Mark, and the most recent Back to the Goblin. Other famous scores never performed live anywhere will be included in this show.

The line up for this show will include original members since 1975 Claudio Simonetti and Maurizio Guarini (keyboards) and Massimo Morante (guitar). The band is rounded out by drummer Titta Tani and bassist Bruno Previtali that joined in 2010.

Immediately following Goblin’s performance will be an incredibly rare 35mm screening of Argento’s career-defining giallo masterpiece, Suspiria.

To celebrate Goblin’s first shows in Los Angeles, co promoters Death Waltz Records is releasing a tour-exclusive EP featuring four brand new versions of the Goblin classics Suspiria, Tenebrae, Profondo Rosso & Roller. These re-recorded versions by the recently reunited band not only manage to capture the spirit of the original recordings but instill them with an urgency and intensity that is truly representative of their recent live performances. The EP will only be available on the US tour and will be pressed on blood red 180g vinyl featuring exclusively commissioned artwork by legendary poster artist Graham Humphreys (Evil Dead, A Nightmare On Elm Street).

Beyond Fest is also producing a limited edition poster for the event. Designed by Graham Humphreys, the poster will draft off of the artwork featured on the Death Waltz Records EP and is available exclusively at the show.

There are two tickets available: VIP and General Admission. VIP tickets are priced at $75 (plus booking fee) and limited to 65 tickets. VIP tickets include: access to band sound check, pre show meet and greet with the band, commemorative event poster signed by Graham Humphreys (variant version of that detailed above), and first entry into theater for the live performance and Tenebrae screening. General admission tickets are priced at $30 (plus booking fee) and provide access to the live performance and Tenebrae screening.

Tickets go on sale at 10 AM, Saturday July 27th through  BPT_logo_main

Meltdown Comics friends Amity and American Cinematheque announce Beyond Fest!

Creative collective Amity and the American Cinematheque announced today that they are partnering to create Beyond Fest, a festival featuring the best in world genre programming, October 13 – 27, 2013 at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

Goblin-Poster-01

Dedicated to delivering the elite in horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and badass cinema, Beyond Fest will globally program a diverse and eclectic mix of gala premieres, rare retrospectives, and special events, all of which are anchored in bringing firsts to the community of genre fans in Los Angeles. Beyond Fest’s programming slate launches with the announcement of the first Los Angeles performance of Italian Prog Rock pioneers Goblin, who rose to cult fame through their work with horror maestro Dario Argento.

“We’ve always wanted to bring a world-class genre festival to Los Angeles, so we figured we’d do something about it with Beyond Fest,” said Christian Parkes, principle at Amity. “As fans ourselves we want to create something that is comparable to the very best festivals out there, and partnering with the American Cinematheque allows us to do exactly that: we want to give the film community here direct access to what others are seeing around the world.”

“There are so many great films being produced in every corner of the world, and we want to reflect that when programming Beyond Fest,” said Grant Moninger, American Cinematheque programmer. “By focusing on world cinema, it gives us the opportunity not only to select the very best films out there, but it also allows us to program films that might not be seen in a theater in the US.”

Reflecting Beyond Fest’s  commitment to original and diverse programming is the announcement of Goblin  performing on October 22nd at the Egyptian Theatre. Playing Los Angeles for the first time in their 40 year history, Goblin will perform a full, live set pulled from their most iconic scores, including: Dario Argento’s giallo classics Suspiria, Tenebrae, and Deep Red, and George A. Romero’s seminal Dawn of the Dead. Immediately following Goblin’s performance will be an incredibly rare 35mm screening of Argento’s 1975 masterpiece, Deep Red.

To celebrate Goblin’s first show in Los Angeles, co promoters Death Waltz Records is releasing a tour-exclusive EP featuring four brand new versions of the Goblin classics Suspiria, Tenebrae, Profondo Rosso & Roller. These re-recorded versions by the recently reunited band not only manage to capture the spirit of the original recordings but instill them with an urgency and intensity that is truly representative of their recent live performances. The EP will only be available on the US tour and will be pressed on blood red 180g vinyl featuring exclusively commissioned artwork by legendary poster artist Graham Humphreys (Evil Dead, A Nightmare On Elm Street).
