Celebrate The King w/ Elvis Flicks
& Peanut Butter & 'Nanna Samiches

It's August 16th and that means it's an anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley. And that's a sad thing, my friends, because Elvis was a damn cool guy.

During his life Elvis Presley made a whole bunch of great music, took what must have been several million publicity photos, starred in 31 movies of questionable quality, reinvented himself time and again, kissed a whole hell of a lot of girls, and pouted, wiggled, sweated, shook, crooned, and preened like none before or since. And even though the guy was well aware that he was a living American icon, it's pretty apparent by the roles he took on, the scenes he performed in, and the goofy outfits he let wardrobe put on him in his string of silly but fun movies that he never took himself too seriously. Like I say, damn cool.

And plus he had cool hair. And his taste in shoes wasn't half-bad either.

In celebration of the King's life the Parkway Speakeasy Theatre in Oakland is doing a free showing of Elvis' 1962 semi-classic Follow That Dream, with special raffle prizes and peanut butter and 'nanna samiches. Check out the movie trailer, slip into your favorite white jumpsuit, and come join the Isotope and all our friends at the Parkway for a night of hunka-hunka shaka-shaka.
