Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury

Schedule

Friday, Nov. 9 at 7:30pm
Stage at KDHX

“Parallel Love” relates the unusual story of the band Luxury, which begins much like the story of many bands, with hopes of success and stardom.  “Parallel Love” takes an unexpected turn when it is revealed that Luxury were involved in a frightening touring accident in 1995 that resulted in serious injuries to the band members. After a lengthy recovery, the band continued, but their story becomes even stranger in subsequent years, when first one member (bassist Chris Foley) and then another (singer Lee Bozeman) and finally a third (guitarist Jamey Bozeman) become Eastern Orthodox priests. The fourth original member, drummer Glenn Black, doesn’t join his bandmates in the priesthood, but his own traumatic life story — revealed only later in the film — is equally compelling. Director Matt Hinton became the band’s fifth member post-crash, so “Parallel Love” offers a particularly intimate insider’s view, and the members — especially the sardonic Lee Bozeman — prove hyper-articulate raconteurs.
