We have the rare opportunity to attend the local premiere of The Covellite International Film Festival winning documentary, Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury, about the Indie-Christian-Punk band, Luxury, and three of it’s members who became Orthodox Christian Priests. The film director, Matt Hinton, will be at the premiere and available for Q&A.
Tickets are available from the Hollywood Theater Website and you can also view the trailer.
You can listen to the recent NPR interview on the film here where you can also sample songs from the band’s latest album.
This premiere presents a unique and fun opportunity for the local Orthodox Christian community to turn out for an “extracurricular” activity.
Parallel Love asks a question you don’t hear very often: What happens to a rock-and-roll band when three-fifths of its members become Eastern Orthodox priests? That’s what Luxury, a band from Athens, Georgia, had to deal with after a devastating auto wreck they suffered on tour in 1995 while just on the cusp of success. Best described as The Smiths-meet-Fugazi, Luxury’s hyper-articulate musicians tell their poignant story—and play their soaring melodies on top of wild post-punk instrumentation—in this vibrant, gripping film. “I couldn’t take my eyes off it,” says Paste Magazine.
