Nitehawk’s Country Brunchin’ presents the criminal love story BONNIE AND CLYDE with a live pre-show serenade by TATTERS AND RAGS!
Meet Bonnie and Clyde, two young lovers who just happen to be criminals in a roving gang that will kill anyone who gets in their way! Based on the true life story of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker’s violent bank robbing spree in the early 1930’s, Arthur Penn’s Bonnie and Clyde is a more romanticized account of the string of robberies and subsequent newspaper headlines following these two archetypal lovers to their bitter end. With its trendsetting fashions, dangerously gorgeous stars and ample mix of sex and violence, the film is regarded as one of the first in the New Hollywood era and an enduring classic.
Tatters & Rags have been playing since 2008, at times being a drone post-punk folk band, other times being a sweaty, whiskey-fueled electric honky-tonk band. Fans of the band state that their eclecticism is part of their charm, and it’s always accompanied by a frenetic energy that makes them one of the most exciting live bands in New York City.
