Jason & The Argonauts was one of my favorite movies to watch when I was growing up. The pursuit of the golden fleece and the 1963 special effects took my brain for a ride in a way only rivaled by Star Wars and Benny Hill. So it is with much excitement that Swimming in Bengal is playing an opening set in the lobby of the fabulous Crest Theater before a screening of this classic on Sunday, Feb. 28. Bengal at 6:30 and Jason at 7:00. More details can be viewed at the Crest’s site and Facebook.
Swimming in Bengal will have copies of its live Ashes For Gwynn CD available at the show. The band recently finished editing its next proper album, Drought Fire Drones, to be released on vinyl LP by the new Baggage Claim label. Details forthcoming.
