“I saw lightning bolts coming out of his ears”

I tend to like my documentaries a little on the freaky side.  So perhaps you’ll see why I’m so terribly excited to see the Source Family.   Cults, messiah, drugs, music, and more white outfits than Colonel Sander’s closet.  Here’s the run-down:

The Source Family was a radical experiment in ’70s utopian living. Their outlandish style, popular health food restaurant, rock band, and beautiful women made them the darlings of Hollywood’s Sunset Strip; but their outsider ideals and the unconventional behavior of their spiritual leader, Father Yod, caused controversy with local authorities. They fled to Hawaii, leading to their dramatic demise.

Check the screenings link to see if you’re lucky enough to live in a town that gets this.  The people of Providence, RI will get their chance to switch religions when the Source Family plays at the Cable Car beginning Friday, May 24th.
