Dennis and Lois
Dennis and Lois met in 1975 at legendary rock club CBGB, bonding over a shared passion for music. More than 40 years later, these aging super fans are still going strong, befriending their favorite musicians, selling band merchandise as volunteers, housing touring rockers in their toy museum-like home and traveling all over to catch live shows. Director Chris Cassidy’s upbeat portrait is about enjoying life at its fullest, with a punk-rock edge.
Now more than ever, the music they love has become the one thing that keeps them going. The gigs, the artists, and the body-jolting road trips are what Dennis and Lois live for. We should all live our lives so fully.
Post-screening Q&A will be moderated by music journalist and WXXI contributor Jeff Spevak.
