part of Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road Double Feature with ALICE IN THE CITIES
(1975) dir Wim Wenders w/Rüdiger Vogler, Hans Christian Blech, Hanna Schygulla, Nastassja Kinski [103 min; DCP] A young aspiring author (Vogler) sets off on a journey to find himself, broaden his horizons, and rid himself of the gloomy irritability and despondency that plague him in his hometown. But, in the end, he must face the painful truth that, unlike in the 19th century novels that he admires, a journey alone no longer leads to the desired goal of self-transformation. Instead, his path leads him into an unbroken series of failures, through his own fault and that of all the people he meets on his way.

part of Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road Double Feature with WRONG MOVE
(1974) dir Wim Wenders w/Rüdiger Vogler, Yella Rottländer [112 min; DCP] Technically, ALICE IN THE CITIES is Wenders’ fourth film, but he often refers to it as his first, because it was during this film that he discovered the genre of the road movie. The German journalist Winter (Vogler) – traveling home after a failed attempt to write a story about America – finds himself saddled with little Alice (Rottländer), when he meets her mother the day before his departure. When the mother doesn’t show up to meet them in Amsterdam as promised, Winter and Alice set out to try to find Alice’s grandmother on their own. During their search together, their initial mutual dislike gradually transforms into a heartfelt affection.

If you saw the Kirchen/Cody show last year, then you know just how easily these two road warriors re-connect . The Commander will Join Bill & his band, Too Much Fun, for this very special Honky-Tonk Holiday.
This show will feature seasonal songs from Rock 'n' Roll, Blues, Rhythm and Blues, and Country; forgotten classics from the golden age of music such as Red Simpson's "Truckin' Trees For Christmas" and Hank Snow's "Reindeer Boogie", Albert King's "Santa Claus Wants Some Lovin'", some Commander Cody stuff like "Dadd'y's Drinkin' Up Our Christmas", Christmas tunes from Chuck Berry, Merle Haggard, Elvis and much more, celebrating an American musical tradition where country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass and the Western swing of Texas and California honky tonks. AND of course your old favorites from the Kirchen and Commander Cody classics.
Commander Cody was the fearless leader and keyboard man of the the Lost Planet Airmen and Bill Kirchen was the original guitarist. They were a hell-on-wheels, rip snortin' party band with The Commander leading the musical mayhem and controlled chaos, sporting his legendary antics and sparking up even the toughest crowds and Bill puttin' the twang in that Hot Rod Lincoln sound, which was a runaway hit in 1972. They found themselves on bills with the Grateful Dead, The Doors, The Jefferson Airplane, Alice Cooper, Led Zeppelin & The Eagles; headlining The Fillmore & other legendary rock clubs. Their album "Live From Deep in the Heart of Texas" was named as Rolling Stones 100 Greatest of all time. They were the essence of American Roots Music with songs like "Truck Drivin' Man," "20 Flight Rock," "Down to Seeds & Stems Again," "Lost in the Ozone," "Smoke Smoke Smoke that Cigarette" and "Diggy Liggy Lo."
Bill Kirchen, the "Titan of the Telecaster," has been on stage & recordings with Nick Lowe, Doug Sahm, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Ralph Stanley, Gene Vincent, Link Wray, Danny Gatton and Hoyt Axton. He received a Grammy nomination in 2001. In 2002 he was inducted into the Washington Area Music Association Hall of Fame along with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana) and John Phillip Sousa as well as winning 10 additional Wammies including Artist of the Year and Musician of the Year. In previous years, he won 2000 Rock/ Roots Rock Instrumentalist of the Year, Roots Rock Album (Raise A Ruckus) and 1999 Instrumentalist of the Year at the WAMA Awards, as well as being a multiple winner in 1997 and 1998, receiving ten awards, including Songwriter of the Year.
Nick Lowe calls Bill, "A devastating culmination of the elegant and the funky, a really sensational musician with enormous depth." Indy Week calls him "One of the best guitarists in the land." I call him "lightning in a bottle."
