On Wednesday, January 31, 2018 we invite you to join us at Galaxy Theatre in Uptown Gig Harbor for a fun night featuring a screening of the engaging and inspiring film, Her Aim is True.
Her Aim Is True brings together musicians and rock photographers in an inspiring and unforgettable journey revealing unlikely rock 'n' roll photographer, Jini Dellaccio who visualized punk before it had a name and embodied indie before it was cool. In 1964, a middle-aged Dellaccio was hired to photograph raucous garage bands in her backyard, shooting in natural settings around her Gig Harbor home to create innovative album covers. Soon she was capturing unprecedented portraits of Neil Young and early performances by The Who, Rolling Stones, Mitch Ryder and Mamas & Papas. An anthem for individual creativity, the film celebrates a legacy lost and found as it traces Dellaccio's ingenuity, spirit and style through participants in a gritty music subculture that like, Dellaccio, would set the bar for their descendants.
January 31st would have marked Jini Dellaccio's 101st birthday! What better way to celebrate than by screening Director Karen Whitehead's incredible documentary on Jini's life?
