COMING: OBSCENE at MOBS + This and That


This Friday, Movies on a Big Screen and the Book Collector team up to bring us OBSCENE, a portrait of Barney Rosset and Grove Press.  

Grove Press was the first US publisher of some of my all-time favorite books, including Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer, and publisher Barney Rosset fought the good fight for freedom of expression in America.  OBSCENE is an award-winning documentary about Rosset and Grove Press, and features a laundry list of counterculture superheroes like Jim Carroll, Ed Sanders, John Sayles, etc etc etc.    MOBS unfailingly brings killer stuff to the region, and this looks like one of their best yet.  
Movies on a Big Screen is located at the corner of 4th and F Streets in WEST Sacramento.  And yes, that’s WEST Sac.
Also on tap this weekend is This and That Thrift’s annual NEW STUFF BLOWOUT.  They sit on all of their new-in-the-package donations all year, and then bring the stuff out just before Christmas.  December 6 is the day, folks– brand new stuff at Thrift Store Prices!  Get there early for best pickings!
This and That thrift is on Folsom Blvd, across the Street from Mr Pickles.
