"Open Country' screening to benefit KDRT

What: 'Open Country' film debuts in Davis benefits KDRT

When: 3/10/24

Where: Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St., Davis

Tickets online or at the door

Davis residents Glenda and Jesse Drew recently completed a documentary film on the history and politics of country music, an effort that's been a labor of love for the couple for many years. It is a gift, they say, to "community organizations, down-home music venues, alternative film spaces, union halls, and grassroots projects, as a means to spread the word and to help generate some funds and resources to continue doing the good work you do."

Premiered recently in the Drews' old Mission District neighborhood in San Francisco, "Open Country" makes its Davis debut on Sunday, March 10, 2024 at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall. The Odd Fellows are generously co-presenting the event with Davis Media Access (DMA) as a benefit for KDRT 95.7 FM, the low-power FM community radio station DMA launched 20 years ago.

Doors open at 6 pm, with screening at 6:30. Tickets: $10 donation in advance, with an option to purchase tickets at the door with a sliding scale; live music by local musician Casey Thompson. The filmmakers will introduce their documentary and hold a Q&A afterwards. The Odd Fellows bar will be open as well.
