D TOUR DVD release party/screening

Thursday February 18th Doors 7pm movie @ 8pm

A Rock and Roll film about Life, Death and Bodily functions

Pat Spurgeon is the charismatic drummer of the Oakland, California based indie rock band Rogue Wave and has only one kidney, which is failing. Pat’s search for a new organ and his inspiring ability to balance health and work form the center of D tour. As the film begins, he has a tube inserted in his stomach for twice-daily dialysis, a process that simulates kidney function. Even if dialysis should be done only in a sterile environment, Pat wants to gig and the band hits the road on what they dub their D(ialysis) Tour. Interweaving live performances from a benefit concert, Jim Granato's award-winning documentary is a unique travelogue, raising issues of friendship, self-preservation, identity, health care, indie rock and, most notably, organ donation.

Curated and attended by director Jim Granato
