Jobriath A.D. + Scalarama Leeds programme launch

Jobriath A.D. + Scalarama Leeds programme launch

Details

The first chance to see the new 2017 Scalarama season trailer, pick up flyers and local guides, and there’s live music and a film screening, of course, organised by Film Fringe.

The film Jobriath A.D (2012) is Kieran Turner’s fascinating documentary about 70s glam rock musician Jobriath.

Jobraith is considered to be “the first openly gay rock star” and was dubbed “the American Bowie”. He was also, tragically, one of the first rock stars to die of AIDS.

He is a fascinating and exraordinary 20th century figure, his short career was preceded by incredible hype, with much of the publicity focused on his homosexuality rather than his musical talent. Dropped by his record company, he died in the Chelsea hotel in his 30s.

The film is narrated by Henry Rollins and before the screening Leeds band DAS PAIN will do a short set of Jobriath songs.
