The Monkees’ HEAD - Catch this stunning masterpiece (really!) twice at the Ritz for Music Monday

See this near-universally acknowledged classic of American film while you can.

The Monkees’ HEAD - Catch this stunning masterpiece (really!) twice at the Ritz for Music Monday

HEAD: Music Monday Dec. 10 and Dec. 17. At the Ritz. Click here for more details and to buy tickets.

Sponsored by Austin's greatest music store, End of an Ear Records, and Austin's most essential vintage furniture and decor store, Room Service. Jack Nicholson (yes, THAT Jack Nicholson) co-wrote and produced The Monkees' surrealistic madcap exploration through uncharted psychedelic territory.

The pre-fab four's feature film debut is so chock-full of goofball segments and pie-in-the-face high art that you'll go cross-eyed with the best possible combination of confusion and laughter. It's one of the oddest, most inventive movies you will ever see, and an acknowledged landmark of American film.

This must-see journey through the craziest circles of late-'60s subconscious also contains cameos by everyone from Frank Zappa to boxing superstar Sonny Liston and even ex-Mouseketeer/beach bunny Annette Funicello! A truly mind-ripping adventure in chemically altered comedy!

Please Note that the Dec 10th and 17th Music Monday screenings of HEAD will screen digitally in high definition. Unfortunately, our friends at Rhino have misplaced their 35mm print. We're keeping our fingers crossed that it will turn up by next Monday's show, but in the meantime enjoy this psych classic in crisp digital with the remastered audio cranked ALL the way up.
