Sup Doc Podcast LIVE presented by SF Sketchfest: HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT!
We’ll start the show by watching the incredible documentary HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT. Then our hand-picked panel of comedians will discuss it.
Heavy Metal Parking Lot documents heavy metal music fans tailgating in the parking lot outside the Capital Centre (which was demolished in December 2002) in Landover, Maryland, on May 31, 1986, before a Judas Priest concert during their Fuel for Life tour (with opening act Dokken).
‘Sup Doc, a biweekly podcast devoted to discussing documentaries has joined ART19. The show’s hosts, Paco Romane and George Chen, combine their background in culture and comedy to deconstruct current and classic documentaries.
