LA Times on tomorrow's Seventh Python premiere

The Los Angeles Times has run another feature on The Seventh Python, the Neil Innes biopic from our pals at Frozen Pictures that has its world premiere in less than 24 hours at Martin Lewis' ninth Mods & Rockers Film Fest (a division of American Cinematheque).

Susan King writes:

"Over the last four decades, the 63-year-old singer-songwriter has fronted the beloved British group the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band; performed and written songs for the comedy troupe Monty Python’s Flying Circus; and played the John Lennon-esque Ron Nasty in the 1979 Beatles' spoof 'The Rutles,' which was created by Innes and Python Eric Idle. "So it's fitting that Innes is front and center at the ninth edition of the American Cinematheque's Mods & Rockers Film Festival at the Egyptian Theatre. The festival's opening tonight features the world premiere of the 2008 documentary 'The Seventh Python,' as well as the 2007 documentary 'The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band 40th Anniversary Concert.' And on Friday, Innes will perform in concert. "'It's really nice,' Innes says from England about the Mods & Rockers' honors. 'A lot of people can't get around the fact that I have met all of these people and worked with all of these people and still kept out of the limelight. I don't like that side of it.'"

Showtime is at 7:30 pm. Neil Innes himself will be there; a Bonzo Dog Dooh Dah Band concert film follows, and on Friday, Neil is performing an unprecedented solo show at the Egyptian!
