The Moxie Theatre was rented by Debra Granik and anyone having anything to do with Winter’s Bone was invited for free to attend a screening of 1) the extra footage, 2) the making of Winter’s Bone and 3) Hillbilly Up, a testimonial from local persons in the movie about what it means to be a hillbilly and do they think of themselves as one. Let me tell ya, it was good. After all the RSVP’s came in from the movie folk it opened to the public, once again free. I was glad I went.
Afterward many in the audience went next door to an un-named pub (really I never could find the name and meant to ask the owner but forgot) and hung out for a while. The fish and chips were tasty! They didn’t have bottled water, my beverage of choice in a bar, but assured me the tap water was seriously filtered so I went for it.
After that about 20 or so went down the road a spell to Bo Brown’s house for a jam session. Nice. Nice place, nice music, nice crowd, great gumbo and cornbread!
It is fair to say a good time was had by all.
