Rare Female Rock & Soul Performance Clips on Wednesday Night

Posted By on Tue, Feb 2, 2010 at 8:00 AM

These drizzly, wet, cold February nights are tailor-made for watching movies. Local rock historian Richie Unterberger offers a side of music education with his film screenings, pairing rare clips of interviews, concerts, and television appearances on a select theme during his regular, monthly-ish nights at the Park Branch of the San Francisco Library (1833 Page St., in the Upper Haight). 

Tomorrow night, Feb. 3, he focuses on female rock and soul performers from the '50s to the '80s. That list will include bits on Wanda Jackson, Brenda Lee, Francoise Hardy, the Ronettes, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Barbara Lynn, Dusty Springfield, Lulu, Janis Joplin, Grace  Slick with the Jefferson Airplane, Nancy Sinatra, Joni Mitchell, Nico, Patti Smith, Shonen Knife, and others.

There's no charge for Richie's screenings, but definitely get there long before the 7 p.m. start time or you'll have only your natural padding to comfort you against the hard basement floor.
