Wednesday To-Do: 'Independent for Governor'

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 2010 at 9:07 AM

7 p.m., University of Central Arkansas's Reynolds Performance Hall. Free.

At my house, I still have one of the many, many spray paint-stenciled "Rod Bryan for Governor" cardboard signs that popped up around the state — especially in the Stifft Station/Capitol View neighborhoods — during the elections of 2006. In fact, I'm pretty protective of it. I like to think that one day I can tell my grandkids about the year my buddy who hung out on my porch during house shows and let me loiter in his record store decided to up and run for governor. Thankfully, it's a story I won't have to stumble through now that Huixia Lu's long-awaited documentary about Bryan's unconventional, one-liner-packed summer of politics is finally being released. The (fantastic) trailer for "Independent for Governor: An Idealist's Grueling Run" hit the Internet last week and, as of press time, Lu, the Cannes Festival-featured UCA professor, is still pruning her final cut of the film for next week's world premiere. Expect a good bit of gadfly politics, a Ho-Hum heavy soundtrack and a flood of one-liners from Rod "Quips Ahoy!" Bryan.
