Lost In Time, Lost In Love
Guy Schwartz & The New Jack Hippies participate at a music festival where the
business was not performed as well as the music. As the real party hours
approached on night #1, the promoters chickened out and shut the doors, and LunateX, BMC and Andrei
Morant were told that they will not perform or get paid. Even the ensuing arguments between artist reps
and promoters - and a visit by the police - couldn't stop the music. Film features great performances by
Dubtex, Motograter, Los Skarnales, Tin Henry, Chris Anderson, Levon Louis, CitiZEN Change, Brio Kids,
Hollister Fracus, Bad Acid Trip, Pilot Radio, The Handsomes, The Houston Police Department, and a
bunch of weird, middle-aged promoters who wanted to stop the party and have Ickoo (of The BRIO KIDS)
thrown in jail.
Directed Guy Schwartz - this is the first cut, and has a few glitches...
