UPCOMING (Wed. Nov. 18): "I Am Thor" film screening & live performance by Jon Mikl Thor at Small's in Hamtramck
On Wednesday, November 18 Small's Bar in Hamtramck is hosting an exclusive screening of the documentary "I Am Thor," an official selection of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
The film will be followed by a performance by the bodybuilding champion and heavy metal singer himself- Jon Mikl Thor and his band THOR.
Jon Mikl Thor was a bodybuilding, steel bending, brick smashing rock star in the 70's & 80's whose theatrical band THOR hit the scene alongside Metallica and Kiss, but never achieved the gold record status of its contemporaries. After a brief but memorable film career saw him starring in the cult classics Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare and Zombie Nightmare, Thor all but disappeared from the entertainment map. But ten years into retirement, and incapable of living like a normal mortal human being, Thor attempts a comeback to achieve the level of success that had eluded him his entire career - a comeback that nearly kills him. Tracing the rise, fall, and rebirth of a determined performer over the course of a career that has seen more than its fair share of highs and lows, I AM THOR paints a fascinating and sometimes unbelievable portrait of this larger-than-life icon.

8 p.m. doors, 9 p.m. film followed by performance
