"Song Sung Blue" will play at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 3 at the Landmark Century Centre Cinema, 2828 N. Clark, as part of the Midwest Independent Film Festival. Thunder herself and director Greg Kohs will appear in person.
"Song Sung Blue" tells a love story about two people who are apart only three days after 1989, who love each other in good times and in bad, and whose romance blossoms in shabby bars, smoky clubs and, once, in front of 30,000 people.
