Still dreaming of San Francisco, I'm loving this footage* of Dr John coming over all bawdy vaudevillian, playing Such a Night with The Band at their last ever gig at the Winterland Ballroom in San Fran on Thanksgiving, 1976. I can’t tell you how much I love the Dr’s look: silver shoes, velvet smoking jacket with sparkles and a pink silk bow tie. Boys: take note for an amazing date outfit.
I've had Such a Night stuck in my head since watching Colors last weekend. A young Sean Penn, Robert Duvall, set in 1980s LA, awesome soundtrack, directed by Dennis Hopper and a car chase scene that ends with a car exploding into the Watts Towers. What more could you possibly want from a film? Have a great weekend! x
*From Scorsese's The Last Waltz.
