April Showers bring the damaged and fried "Western" of 1970's Deadlock on Wednesday April 10. From German director Roland Klick, it's a simple and sordid tale of a fight for a suitcase of cash in a near-deserted desert whistle-stop. The Kid, Mr Dump and Mr Sunshine battle it out, all in a very weird mood and with perfectly awkward English dubbing.

Perhaps known as an entry in the Sauerkraut Western genre, it feels like a nod to Leone but with nary a horse in sight. Only cars, guns, desperation and Can. The recurring theme is by the German juggernaut (along with their terrific 'Tango Whiskeyman'), hypnotically weaving throughout the proceedings.

It will be all Can records all night, starting at 7, along with hot frankfurters on the grill. Movie on a touch after 8, and stick around for more tunes afterwards.

Free, donations appreciated. BYO or sample what's on-hand!
