1930'S "REEFER" EXTRAVAGANZA w/ Live Music by THE BIJOU BUMS Friday, November 30, 2018 7:00 PM


Admission $10.

The evils of Marijuana addiction will be revealed in this evening of vintage films and live music.

Travel back in time to the 1936 when America was in the grip of Marijuana Hysteria and nobody was safe from the evils of this deadly narcotic. This was a time when "Hopheads" and "Dope Fiends" prowled the streets of America looking for "Reefer"!

The Bijou Bums will be performing live featuring Jerry Siggins, Shawn Mafia and Chris Perry playing rare "Reefer" songs from the 1930's by artists such as Fats Waller and Cab Calloway. Singer and songwriter Jerry Siggins is the leader of the 1950’s vocal group THE DIAMONDS who had many hits such as THE STROLL and LITTLE DARLIN’. Shawn Mafia is a local singer, songwriter and Depression Era music specialist. Christopher Perry is a professional pianist who specializes in vintage piano styles.

The vintage 1936 exploitation film MARIJUANA WEED WITH ROOTS IN HELL will be shown in an uncut, uncensored version.

Also on the bill: The western short HIGH ON THE RANGE and a marijuana clip from WAGES OF SIN. A surrealistic 1930's Betty Boop cartoon entitled BIMBO'S INITIATION will also be shown..

Zoot Suiter Chris Perry will give a short lecture on "Reefer 101" revealing the vintage language of Reefer Addicts and Dope Fiends.

Free Mary Jane will be given away! (Yeah, right!)

This show will run until at least 9:30pm.

The Bijou opens at 6:30pm.
