KCRW Partner Screening: Blaze
August 18, 2018 • 5:15 pm PDT
BLAZE is inspired by the life of Blaze Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. The film weaves together three different periods of time, braiding re-imagined versions of Blaze’s past, present and future. The different strands explore his love affair with Sybil Rosen; his last, dark night on earth; and the impact of his songs and his death had on his fans, friends, and foes. The braided storyline terminates in a bittersweet ending that acknowledges Blaze’s profound highs and lows, as well as the impressions he made on the people who shared his journey.
This KCRW Partner Screening will be held on the SMC Center for Media & Design Campus, home of KCRW HQ, in conjunction with KCRW Summer Nights happening from 7-11pm. Come early for a free screening and stay late for great music, good food, and fun! This KCRW Summer Nights event will feature a special DJ set by Henry Rollins.
