A viewing of "Brighter Days" to get the crowd going for the upcoming show,

$10 all you can drink before the viewing ..... 

ayund free popcorn to boot! 

Looks like they need to get a more recent photo. 

 

JJ Grey & Mofro's 'Brighter Days'

Tonight @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 6:30 p.m.

By Shepherd Express Staff

 
The hard-boogieing Southern rock act JJ Grey & Mofro will return to Milwaukee later this month for a Jan. 19 performance at the Turner Hall Ballroom. In advance of that show, the venue is hosting a free screening of Brighter Days, a concert film capturing the band live at Atlanta's Variety Playhouse last January. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with a $10 all-you-can-drink special that runs until the movie begins at 8 p.m. There will also be free popcorn.

FREE Popcorn? Damn, too bad I live hundreds of miles away. I love me some popcorn!
 
Do you think that someone could've expended the effort to obtain a current picture of the band for this advertisement??

Nice scoop, but I’ll just be holding out for the real deal.. 4 am daily wake up call does not support random ventures to MIlwaukee.. No shiz on the pic gigs… REALLY…

 

I hope to see a good turnout.. I’ve been badgering some noobs for a month now.. Guess it don’t really matter come the 19th.. I’ll be there with my tw and a big ole grin..

Now ya got me digging Sunshine… Look what I stumbled upon.. Perhaps someone with authority can confirm this?  A greyhound after party would be sweet ! Considering it would be my first time.. Hooray for me !

 

 

 

The Florida soul/funk/rock band JJ Grey & Mofro is blitzing Milwaukee with a film screening and two live shows in coming weeks.

The group's concert film, "Brighter Days," will have a free screening at 8 p.m. Thursday at Turner Hall Ballroom, 1032 N. 4th St.

The event includes free popcorn and a $10 unlimited beer and rail drink special that runs from 6:30 p.m. to the start of the film.

The band performs at Turner Hall two weeks later, at 8 p.m. Jan. 19. General admission is $17.50. The show will be followed by a free after-party at Tonic Tavern, 2335 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., featuring the Greyhounds, a side project that includes three members of Mofro.
