Posted By on Thu, May 22, 2014 at 2:17 PM

Looking For Johnny, a new documentary about punk icon Johnny Thunders, gets a single screening in New Orleans tonight, Thursday, May 22 at Zeitgeist Movies. A founding member of 1970s proto-punk bands the New York Dolls and the Heartbreakers, Thunders' work has influenced the last 40 years of underground rock in ways matched only by the Velvet Underground and Iggy Pop's Stooges. Local rockers the Backstabbers will start things off at 8:00 p.m. with a live set paying tribute to Thunders. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Looking For Johnny writer-director Danny Garcia. Tickets are $10; $8 for Zeitgeist members. More info here.
