If you're in the Chicagoland area next Tuesday, the 24th, and want to see a great documentary about a psychedelic rock legend, then you should definitely pay a visit to The Music Box Theatre. Sound Opinions is hosting a screening of the Roky Erickson documentary You're Gonna Miss Me. For those of you who don't know, Roky Erickson is the pioneer behind the 13th Floor Elevators, one of the groups who were responsible for developing psychedelic rock. The film explores Roky's influence as well as his personal life and his mental illness. It sounds like it should be a very compelling film. Here's more information about the screening from the Sound Opinions Mailing List:

We just watched it last night and it was amazing. I'd never heard of Erickson or the Elevators, but he's definitely "not of this world" as they say in the documentary. Heartbreaking, funny, and powerful. Amazing to think what his life must have been like. Thanks for this post.
