I’m going to be out of town this weekend, but after getting this morning’s e-mail from the Cinefamily I’m kicking myself for what I’m going to be missing. This Sunday they are teaming up with Feral House and Process Media to present an evening of events from one of my favorite cults. From their invite:
Was The Process Church truly “one of the most dangerous Satanic cults in America”? Or were they an intensely creative apocalyptic shadow side to the flower-powered ’60s and New Age ’70s. Scores of black-cloaked devotees swept the streets of New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, and other cities selling magazines with titles like “Sex”, “Fear”, “Love” and “Death”, and a theology proposing the reconciliation of Christ and Satan through love. Marianne Faithfull, George Clinton and Mick Jagger participated in Process publications, and Funkadelic reproduced Process material in two of their albums. The inside story of this controversial group has at last emerged with Feral House’s LOVE SEX FEAR DEATH by Timothy Wyllie and other former members. Tonight, Feral House and Process Books present a re-creation of an actual Process Church “Sabbath Assembly” ritual. Author Wyllie (Father Micah) will follow to discuss the cult and his time within it in a multimedia presentation. The Sabbath Assembly band, comprised of Imaad Wasif (Tee Pee Records), Jex Thoth (I Hate Records), Kevin Rutmanis (hepa-Titus, et alii), and David Christian (of No-Neck Blues Band), will perform Process hymns and songs throughout. Join us!
Show starts at 6PM at the Silent Movie Theater on Fairfax, It’s $15 and if I were you I’d buy tickets online ahead of time. Damn I’m pissed I’m missing this!
