Celebrating Gil Scott-Heron's Birthday: A Film Screening

Tickets: Free Entry w/ RSVP

Age 18+

In honor of Gil Scott-Heron’s birthday, S.O.B.’s will be hosting a night of music and viewing of the films “Black Wax” (1983) and “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” (2003). 

Gil Scott-Heron, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner, was a longtime friend and performer of S.O.B.’s, first taking the stage in 1991. In his later years, S.O.B.’s founder Larry Gold managed Gil’s career. His legacy is that of a musical and poetic genius, with spoken word over driving beats — humor-laced, sharp critiques of politics, racism and mass media — that made him a global voice of protest for decades. 

S.O.B.’s will always honor the legacy of Gil Scott, and will never let that legacy fade, despite how much time may pass. We invite you to honor him with us, and support our mission to keep his name fresh in the minds of all who care about music, art, and activism. Gil’s family and friends will be in attendance. 

Dinner & drinks will be available. Tables are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. For groups of 10+, please contact booking@sobs.com to arrange a reservation.
