Members of Journey to Appear at Castro Theatre This Thursday for SF Int'l Film Festival

Posted By on Tue, May 1, 2012 at 4:13 PM


"Don't Stop Believin'" is the name of a song by Journey that you may have heard at karaoke a few times. Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey is also the name of a new documentary about the band and its new Filipino singer, Arnel Pineda, that will screen this Thursday at the Castro Theatre for the closing night of the San Francisco International Film Festival.

Film festival screenings often include special guests, but this Thursday's will be extra special, at least for Journey fans: Along with director Ramona S. Diaz, we're told that all the current members of Journey will also be there for the screening (and, we hope, the after party).

Yup, that means hanging out with Neil Schon, Ross Valory, and Pineda --who was discovered on YouTube by the band and hired to replace original Journey singer Steve Perry -- all in person, this Thursday in S.F. So anyone who regularly butchers Journey songs at their local bar is required to show up and meet the unwitting gods of karaoke. It's simply the only respectable thing to do.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
