Join us for a Stranded in Canton after-party with The Thank You Friends Alex Chilton Revue Band. Celebrate the chaos, the cacophony, the characters and the music of a time and place that only William Eggleston and Alex Chilton could create and capture in sound and vision. Screen the film, Stranded in Canton, at Crosstown Theater and then re-live the music with Ross Johnson, The Klitz (Amy Starks, Gail and Marcia Clifton), Adam Hill, and others at an after-party in The Green Room.

About The Klitz:
Los Angeles had the Go-Go’s and the Runaways. New York had the Angels and the Shangri-Las. In Memphis, the most talked about girl group was The Klitz. The band sprang onto the Midtown scene in 1978 and quickly worked its way into local rock-and-roll lore with Alex Chilton serving as their impresario.
About Ross Johnson:
Ross Johnson’s name may only be familiar to a cult of faithful followers, but he’s one of the true heroes of the Southern alt and punk rock underground. From his days riding shotgun with Chilton, to his efforts helping found the Panther Burns to his work with outfits like the Gibson Bros. and ’68 Comeback, Ross has been a dedicated soldier in the trash rock trenches for four decades – while creating a catalog of truly brilliant and bizarre solo recordings on the side.
