The Surprise Tour Film Screening, 6-8 p.m., The Gallery Below, 718B N. Weber St., facebook.com/thegallerybelow.
This is going to sound like an April Fool’s joke, but bear with us: Monday’s screening will be your only opportunity to catch this film in Colorado ever, and your last opportunity to catch it at all until April 1, 2020, when it will be screened in another state. That is the point of The Surprise Tou
r, a documentary about erstwhile art-punk band The Best Thing Ever. Known for their creative performances (such as a bathroom tour, where they played concerts in bathrooms across New England), The Best Thing Ever embarked upon a surprise tour in 2007, playing unannounced concerts in weird locations. The documentary about that tour is itself a surprise every year, and we’re looking forward to seeing what it has in store. We’ve never seen it before, and odds are we’re never going to see it again.
