Claudio and Bruno pointing out Dario Argento's accidental reflection in the window of this scene in Suspiria during soundcheck. I've seen Suspiria probably 20 times since the 80s and never noticed this before!

Meet & greet at the Wyrd War gallery.

Claudio signed my beautiful print of this Conquest poster art by the Ghanaian mobile cinema artist Leonardo. 

Claudio had never seen this rare 1978 Dawn of the Dead board game by SPI Games that is part of our current exhibit at the Wyrd War gallery.

Scenes from the projection booth.

384 stabbing shards of glass can't be wrong.

I don't always act like an Italian opera queen, but when I do it's on stage with Claudio Simonetti! Thank you A.K. Wilson for capturing the spirit of the night in a single photo. 

"If you had told 15 year old me that someday I'd be up here on stage introducing one of my absolute cinematic musical heroes...I probably would've been less cranky in high school!" Hey Portland! Thanks for showing up and giving me the night of my life last week! We sold out The Hollywood Theatre in less than 24 hours...back in July...for our screening of Dario Argento's DEEP RED (1975) featuring Claudio Simonetti's Goblin performing live! Special thanks to everyone who purchased meet & greet tickets and joined us at the Wyrd War gallery for a very intimate evening with the maestro and his band. It was an incredible experience for all involved and I can't thank Claudio enough for being the most humble and gracious musician I've ever had the pleasure of hosting! Next up in my autumn cinematic soundtrack concert series is John Carpenter's THEY LIVE (1988) featuring Academy award-winning composer Alan Howarth live in concert after the film! Our 7:30pm performance sold out in 24 hours, so we added an encore 11pm show! Get your tickets now
