Goner Message Board / Memphis / Beware the SIVADS OF MARCH! - featuring the Reigning Sound!
Posted: Mar 2, 2010 5:38 pm
As a longtime lurker, I'm finally moved to participate so I can post this message alerting all Goners and other interested parties to this (probably) one-time-only event, which I find myself co-coordinating:
You've experienced Africa in April, you've enjoyed Memphis in May, now get ready for THE SIVADS OF MARCH, a four-day (March 25-28) tribute to the late Watson Davis, aka "Sivad, the Monster of Ceremonies," beloved host of the "Fantastic Features" horror movie program that ran from 1962-72 on WHBQ-TV Channel 13 in Memphis, introducing terrified and delighted young'uns (such as myself) to "Night/Curse of the Demon," "A Bucket of Blood," "I Was a Teenage Werewolf,'' to name just three of the movies we'll be screening at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.
Also: a Sivad art show; panels and meet-and-greets with Sivad family members and associates, including the man who organized the famous Sivad appearance in 1963 that attracted 30,000-plus kids to the Fairgrounds; Sivad "holy relics" (we hope!), including the original cape, top hat, makeup kit and his musical instruments (the Ghoulaphone, the Skeletone and the Coffinola); and a March 27 concert featuring the Reigning Sound, whose latest album, "Love & Curses," is named for a Sivad catchphrase.

Here's the story announcing the event in The Commercial Appeal, with links to the (oft-changing) Sivads of March website, etc:

Sivad's currently creeping out the denizens of Bath:
