AC/DC: LET THERE BE ROCK / ABBA: THE MOVIE

AC/DC: Let There Be Rock (archival 35mm print!) ? 8:00pm
Interviewer: ?Do you think that there will be a Third World War?? Angus Young: ?I am the Third World War.? ? AC/DC: Let There Be Rock

Bathed in colors as vibrant as an adolescent acid trip, their amps stacked skyward and blaringly loud, stands the scruffy supergroup AC/DC. In front of them, thousands of rock-enthralled Parisians, banging their heads into oblivion and offering up cigarette lighters in tribute to these Aussie Gods of Riffery. Let There Be Rock is a megavolt surge of pure, testosterone-pumped, bell-bottomed bliss that will keep your toe tapping ?til it turns black. With Bon Scott on vocals, (stuffed into a hell of a sexy denim getup) and the impossibly energetic Angus Young playing the ever-loving fuck out of his axe, tearing back and fourth across the stage in wild beat-induced gyrations! Packed with a ton of awesome footage including an extended sports-car-vs.-plane race, incoherent drunken interviews and the urban adventures of this young studly band of scoundrels, Let There Be Rock is one of the most thrilling, thunderous filmed concerts of all time.
Dirs. Eric Diyonsus & Eric Mistler, 1980, 35mm, 95 min.

An incompetent radio DJ tries to get an interview with the Swedish pop group during their famous week-long 1977 tour of Australia.
