I often see the phrase “Support local _____.” Sometimes that blank is filled with “music,” sometimes “art” or “artists,” sometimes “film” and even “business.” In Montgomery, you have opportunities to support all of that.
Wednesday is the premier of the locally-made film The Devil’s Hand. The first showing begins at 7 p.m., the second at 9 p.m. at the Tipping Point in the Hampstead area of town.
There is a $5 entrance fee, and if you want a copy of the DVD, they will be taking orders. The $8 gets you the DVD, and it helps the filmmakers cover costs associated with sending the film to festivals.
Also, the Tipping Point has a great craft beer selection, so enjoy one of those and help support a local business.
Thursday is the latest Löwbraü Art Collective show. From 6:30 to 11 p.m., Head on the Door is turned into an art gallery featuring mixed media pieces from a variety of local artists.
This showing features art by Trey Baldwin (of Hail the Titans), Zach Burnett, Jason Fifield (of …and the Lawyers), Samantha Lee, Jeff McLeod (of NO), and Kevin Sanders.
There is no entrance fee.
On Friday, BPM is playing at Head on the Door. Montgomery’s own reggae band starts at 10 p.m., and there is no cover.
In other news, the folks at Helicity Montgomery just launched a nice, new website: helicitymgm.org.
