Jun 19, 2012

A little-known Atlanta musician who helped invent the jam band scene and inspired bands like Widespread Panic and Phish is finally getting his due.

Col. Bruce Hampton has been compared to Captain Beefhart and Frank Zappa, and a new documentary film, Basically Frightened, explores his music and why he never became more famous.  The film will show in Chattanooga on Thursday, June 21st at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre.
