Big Smash! Productions continues its dedication the music movies with a presentation of 2006's The Passing Show: The Life and Music of Ronnie Lane. The April 1 show at The Cyrk will correspond with what would've been the Lane's 63rd birthday and will feature a written introduction by Small Faces/Faces member Ian McLaglan. The bio doc features numerous musical clips and interviews with family, friends and colleagues including Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, McLagan, Kenney Jones, Glyn Johns, Henry McCullough, Joe Ely and many more.

I'm going to be perfectly honest here and admit that I had no idea who this band was. Inevitably, that meant a trip to Wikipedia, where I learned that Small Faces was "possibly one of the most acclaimed and influential mod groups of the 1960s." Which kinda embarassed me. So then I checked out some vintage stuff on YouTube. Learning is fun!
