Ironic Demonic

It’s been a long time since mainstream music has been dangerous. Take a look at Billboard. The only thing that today’s hit music is liable to influence is the degree and frequency of your twerking. If you want to relive the golden age of hiding cassettes from parents and riled-up Christian groups picketing concerts, you'll want to head to FilmBar. That's when Unfathomable Film Freakout presents Hell’s Bells: The Dangers of Rock 'N' Roll as an installment in the indie theater's monthly showcase of pedal-to-the-metal flicks.

The 1989 film is a Christian documentary about allegedly demonic tunes on the airwaves, including lust-inducing songs from Madonna and Satan-worshipping odes from metal bands. Host Eric Holmberg fights for the forces of good with a sweet 1980s ‘stache to boot.
