    I watched the trailer and heard the song by Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah so I might as well tell this story.
    About 15 years ago one of my old good friends that i hadn’t heard from in awhile called me up and invited me over for the fourth of July at his sister’s house. So I went over and partied with him and his older sister, and her boyfriend that I had never met before. The boyfriend was a pretty cool dude so we all got wasted that day and we started talking about music, then he put on an album and that song started playing. He said ” this is my band” a couple of times but I was drunk and an idiot so I thought he just meant that was his favorite band or something. I had heard the song a million times before on classic rock stations and thought it was a cool song but not something I would listen to on my own often so I just agreed with him that it was a good song and the topic pretty much turned to something else. Anyways, we continued to get wasted and then I left and never saw the guy again but then a few days later from my friend who had invited me over that the guy was actually a member of the band that wrote the song, which blew my mind and I felt like an idiot for not talking more with the guy about his band

    ( late note-Ok now that i have typed this whole long story I checked out the band on wikipedia and there isn’t much info, but I guess maybe he was John Jeremiah? The other band members listed seem way too old, the guy I knew was in his late 40s or so)

    also getting tickets .my retail job is being a jerk about asking for time off in November but I’m sure I’ll figure something out

      Very cool story, John. The author of the song is actually Skip Haynes. I had to get permission from him to use it in the film. He’s a super-nice guy.

      I’m thrilled you’ll be able to come to one of the screenings. I look forward to reconnecting in person next month!
