1993.08.17 Laemmie's Sunset 5 Theater, West Hollywood "GIFT"

Post by Mike »

I know this isn't a show but I'm still curious about it.
I know Perry and Perk definitely didn't attend this premiere but does anyone know if Dave or Eric did?
I've heard that Casey was there but is there any proof of this?

I don't recall anyone from the band being there, but it was a long time ago. Casey, yes.

Thanks tvrec. :thumb:
I was pretty sure I'd read or heard that she was there.
I haven't looked yet but I may have a newspaper article or something that mentions her being there.

I know for a fact Perry and Perk didn't attend seeing as they were here in Ohio on tour with Porno For Pyros.
I kind of doubt Eric would have went but Dave on the other hand is a possibility.

The date looked curious to me when I first read this thread, so I went back and did some digging around. The pass that you have a scan for here is NOT for the World Premiere. Even though it lists the screening as being the Los Angeles premiere, it had already screened in Los Angeles earlier that same year.

The date for the first screening is 19 February 1993.

This date is for the world premiere and it was screened, curiously enough, at Laemmle's Sunset as part of Sound and Vision: Hollywood Salutes the Grammys. (Event 19C)

This is the screening I attended--not the August one--so my reports of Casey being there don't apply to August, and her crying wasn't due to Perry touring but, rather, not attending.

Just to add on to the last post, the "World Premiere" scan under the discography has the Feb info, too, so those dates should be clarified for the film's entry.
