The Seeds: Pushin' Too Hard
On Saturday, March 7, the Plaza Playhouse Theater is pleased to present "The Seeds: Pushin' Too Hard", with very special guest director Neil Norman.

The long form 110+ minute documentary directed by Neil Norman for GNP Crescendo, premiered on August 16, 2014 at the Egyptian Theater at the American Cinematheque in a sold out showing.

Using vintage footage, rare photos, memorabilia and audio, and fresh interviews with band members and associates as well as notable fans and observers, Pushin' Too Hard relates the bizarre rage-to-riches-to-rags tale of the rock quartet who took Los Angeles by storm in the mid-60s.

The Seeds  keyboard player Daryl Hooper, guitarist Jan Savage, drummer Rick Andridge and charismatic singer Sky Saxon  were all emigres to early 1960s Hollywood. After building a crack reputation in underground clubs such as Bido Litos, the group bust out in late 1966 with the classic anthem "Pushin' Too Hard," which went Top 40 nationally in early 1967.

The band's story is examined in detail in The Seeds: Pushin' Too Hard. All four original Seeds are represented, alongside auxiliary members, band associates, and contemporaries such as Kim Fowley, Bruce Johnston of The Beach Boys and Johnny Echols of Love. Major fans like Iggy Pop and The Bangles weigh in on what The Seeds meant to them. Narration is by noted author Miss Pamela Des Barres.

The Seeds: Pushin' Too Hard is directed by Neil Norman, produced by Alec Palao and edited by Dan Schaarschmidt. Award-winning director Norman and four-time Grammy nominee Palao have spent six years developing the project. The movie is accompanied by a major overhaul of the Seeds' catalog and the gripping original soundtrack on GNP Crescendo and Ace/Big Beat Records in the UK.

Tickets to this one time showing are $25 and available online, at Seastrand (919 Linden Ave., cash or check only) and at the theater box office one hour prior to showtime.
