SHIMMY & SHAKE FILM SOCIETY - THE ROLLING STONES

SHIMMY & SHAKE ARE NOW ON EVERY WEDNESDAY. This week features a documentary on THE ROLLING STONES.

In the spring of 1971, nine years into their existence as the world’s greatest rock & roll band, the Rolling Stones learned to their great dismay that they were not only broke but would also have to leave England to avoid paying British income tax. They decamped to the French Riviera — aptly described by Somerset Maugham as “a sunny place for shady people,” where all forms of aberrant behavior had always been tolerated so long as the bill was always paid on time — and began recording their new album in the basement of Villa Nellcôte, Keith Richards’ sumptuous mansion by the sea. The result was the Stones’ only double album, the classic “Exile on Main Street.”

As a “not for profit” organisation membership is required and costs range from $15 for 3 sessions – $75 annually. SHIMMY & SHAKE will screen rock documentaries on a weekly basis, Tuesday nights at 7.30pm…..looking forward to getting feedback, so let us know what YOU would like to see! See you there!!!
