2013 Night of the Living Tribute Band Call – Out!!
It’s OFS’s annual Halloween Party, Saturday, October 26, 2013! Any musicians looking to play this year’s event?Now is the time to think about which band you wanna bring to life for one night only!
Here’s the fine print: Your band cannot currently be in a “cover/tribute” band performing in venues (for example: Hell’s Belles), and if your group is chosen you cannot play in more then one confirmed band for the show, we also try not to have duplicate the bands that have previously been done.
Submit two songs via email or cd (to the OFS offices: 416 Washington Street SE #208, 98501) Attention: NOLTB Committee: firstname.lastname@example.org Deadline: July 31st, 5:00pm.

Dir.: Louis J. Gasnier / 1936 / US / 66 min / High Definition Digital
A staple in health classes in the 1930s and a perennial laugh-fest if you’ve had the luck to run across it showing on late night TV, Reefer Madness is the ultimate guide to the REAL dangers of that dreaded drug called marijuana. Give thanks that this film has the courage to warn us of the side effects that can result from smoking the “devil’s weed.” These include excessive laughter and crazy piano playing, which lead to loose morals, suicide attempts, and even MURDER. All of this lunacy is illustrated through the tale of an all-American teenaged boy named Billy, who just happens to fall in with the wrong crowd. An entertaining product of its time, this OFS showing of Reefer Madness is made even more fun by Hecklevision, an audience participation act in which your texted comments will be displayed on the movie screen as the film plays, a la Mystery Science Theater but without the robots!
