A Golden premiere

by R. Reese Fuller

If you're going to be in Austin this upcoming week for South by Southwest, be sure to catch the world premiere of The Promised Land: A Swamp Pop Journey. It's a documentary that focuses on Lafayette's Lil' Band O' Gold - "8 members, 25 egos, 6 livers." You've got three chances to catch it - at the Alamo Lamar Cinema 1 on Tuesday, March 17; the Continental Club on Wednesday, March 18 (for a crawfish boil, too); and the Austin Convention Center on Thursday, March 19. For more info, check out the Web site for Room 609 Films. Also check out the trailer below:
