Summer Music Season is in its fourth year at the Electric Palace cinema, in Hastings Old Town, featuring a range of specially themed events.

David Quantick, Hastings’ own resident music journalist and Emmy-award winning comedy writer, will host the screenings, and live guest appearances include Jordan, one of the legendary names of 70’s punk rock.

David will attend a number of screenings and divulge his encounters with bands featured in the movies, from his time working for music magazines like NME, Q and Uncut. David won an Emmy award earlier this year, for his work writing Veep, the hit comedy series about American politics.

This year’s remaining Summer Music Season films are: on Saturday July 23 Bayou Maharajah at 8pm, on August 4/5/7 Marguerite, and on August 27 at 7.30pm film and Q&A (28 August 8pm - film only): Anarchy! The McLaren Westwood Gang with Q&A hosted by Ted Polhemus with punk’s anti-heroine and Vivienne Westwood model, Jordan aka Pamela Rooke. On Thursday September 8, 11am and 8pm will be Heart of a Dog, and on Saturday September 10, Finding Fela.
