TUESDAY NIGHT: Skype Q&A with Big Brother bassist Peter Albin

The Rosendale Theatre is excited to host Peter Albin, the bass player for Big Brother and the Holding Company, via Skype from San Francisco for an audience Q&A.  Albin is interviewed in the film, and told Rosendale Theatre, “The film includes footage I had never seen before, and a semi-acoustic version of “Me and Bobby McGee” that I’d never heard before. It is accurate and sensitive and I was very moved by it, unlike other films about Janis.”

JANIS: Little Girl Blue was written and directed by Amy Berg, Academy Award nominee for “Deliver Us From Evil.” It is narrated by singer-songwriter Cat Power.

“This is a meticulously researched film that makes good use of its incredible access. There’s enough to keep more casual fans interested, and devotees of the singer will be blown away — excited to find new angles and stories they didn’t know before.” Peter Hartlaub (San Francisco Chronicle)

Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got. Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers. I’m one of those regular weird people.

On stage I make love to twenty five thousand people; and then I go home alone.
If I hold back, I’m no good. I’m no good. I’d rather be good sometimes, than holding back all the time.     ~ Janis Joplin

See this film on a big screen with big sound, surrounded by people who care about music just as much as you do.
