On Thursday March 5th, the long awaited World Premiere of “Skum Rocks!” narrated by Alice Cooper will finally screen for the fans! In what Michael Wench has called ‘the most important rock and roll film of the past thirty years,” “Skum Rocks!” will unleash its stark look at one of the most controversial bands of the past forty years.
The night, all to benefit CHARLEE of Dade County will bring the stars out in Miami.
With an old Hollywood style premiere, complete with celebrities, red carpet, spotlights and limos will give Miami a night to remember. “What they are doing here is really amazing,” said film director Clay Westervelt. “This film deserves a large premiere, just the scope of the celebrities in this film is astounding and to launch this massive project and doing something great for CHARLEE, well, to me thats just what this band is all about.”
“CHARLEE has been serving children and families in Miami-Dade County for almost 32 years. We are extremely grateful that CHARLEE was chosen as the beneficiary of the Skum Rocks premiere and after party,” said Executive Director Suzy Schumer. “The funds raised from the event will allow us to continue to provide vital services in our community..”
The film premiere and red carpet will be at the Colony Theatre on Lincoln Road with the after party concert at Miami’s Grand Central.
“We wanted to do something for the city which has embraced this band.” said rhythm bassist Todd Middlebrook. “This city is like a second home to me and this just feels good to do.”
In typical Skum fashion, the after party will be over the top with Quiet Riot and Eddie Money on stage with Skum as well as special guest The Urge. “This will be the homecoming people will be talking about for years, to finally show this story and play on stage with the likes of Eddie and QUIET RIOT. You can make this up,” said lead bassist Pat Burke.
“Charity is a passion of mine,” said Guitarist John Eaton. “To do this event and have this all benefit CHARLEE, who is not going to go to a classic time and hear some great rock and roll. Anyone who knows us will be there to show the country what this city can do for this great cause.”
