So GonzoFest 2015 was a huge success!!! This growing local music and arts festival honoring Louisville native and famed outlaw journalist, Hunter S. Thompson has gone from an idea for a memorial celebration at the Monkey Wrench bar to a several thousand person event featuring live music, the arts, booze, craziness and fun!
To document this progression and this unique and potent festival, Nick Storm and Storm Generation Films have put together one hell of a Crash, Bang Wallop of a DVD Documentary film featuring never before seen footage, interviews, readings and more!
Take home a part of history and take a behind the scenes look at Hunter’s GonzoVille and the and the hometown that our hero left behind in body but never in spirit.
Watch as Louisville is renamed ‘Hunter’s Gonzoville’ and the giant banner is hung in the Highlands — Hunter’s old stomping grounds.
Relive the biggest Louisville GonzoFest yet, and go inside the festival to hear first hand stories of Hunter S. Thompson along with music, poetry, spoken word and a giant Hunter puppet in downtown Louisville!
Featuring poems and stories with Ron Whitehead, music and memories from David Amram, Frank Messina reading ‘Big Sur’, Hell’s Angel’s copy editor Margaret Harrell sharing personal letters and stories and many, many more!!!
All proceeds from the DVD sales will go to the Gonzo Foundation and GonzoFest Louisville. GonzoFest Louisville will use the funds in an effort commission a bronze life-size statue of Hunter located in Louisville.
