What I'm not seeing this weekend, but you might want to -

Should I plug things I'm not going to be able to see?  There's an argument both ways.  But here's go nothing - basically because the press release for this video screening really tickled my fancy:

The Wesley Willis story IS ROCK-N-ROLL!

Channel Zero And The Bad Poets Society Proudly Present
“Wesley Willis’s Joy Rides” (2008)
Directed by Kim Shively & Chris Bagley

See the incredible but TRUE story of the homeless man whose lyrics & fearless singing style took the Chicago music scene By Storm! Composer of such songs as “I Whupped Batman’s Ass”, “Kris Kringle was a Car Thief” and countless others, Willis was the ultimate Outsider Artist.“Wesley Willis: Joyrides” is a unique documentary experience about one man’s journey out of homelessness and schizophrenia to Rock-n-Roll Redemption.

Friday April 8th at 8pm (sharp!)
Admission 6.50 (Cheap!)
The Somerville Theatre, Screening Room
55 Davis Square.
Somerville Ma 617-625-5700

CHANNEL ZERO, Boston’s Cheapest Entertainment Franchise now in it’s sixteenth year of genteel video transcendence.

I know - it just screams out The Hub Review, doesn't it?  On the other hand, I personally dig anyone who follows his or her own rules of capitalization, wherever they may lead - and who's not a fan of "genteel video transcendence"?  Tonight!  "Wesley Willis's Joy Rides" - be there or be square!  Rock on, Channel Zero!
