Chasing Parked Cars crosses the border again for the first time in over a year (apparently, all restraining orders have expired) as we hit Capri On Main in Gaffney, SC. This is our first show at this incredible theater, and it promises to be a good one! Come out for an interactive comedy experience you won’t soon forget! So, Who Is Chasing Parked Cars?
Chasing Parked Cars is a small group of friends with big ambitions. We all have a great sense of humor and we never take ourselves too seriously. We love pointless conversations and bringing life to the zany characters swimming around in our heads.
NO COVER Fri/May/4th/8:30/Free! An acoustic night with Onward Soldiers front man Sean Gerard as seen on Sun Studios
Posted on Feb.21, 2012
Due to an unforeseen event in the band members family, Sean Gerard will be performing this show acoustic.
If it ends with “FEST”, these guys have played there. California to Maine, Florida to Oregon and everywhere between. In 2011 they took Bele Chere in Asheville by the hand and lead them into the bands new wave Rock, Americana, Psychedelic rendition. North Carolina’s Onward, Soldiers are the product of fortunate coincidence. Sean Thomas Gerard relocated to Carolina’s coast, haphazardly landing his self-recorded demo in the hands of drummer, and co-founder of Winoca Records, Kevin Rhodes. They teamed up with several local musicians, lead guitarist, Lincoln Morris and bassist, Jarett Dorman. Onward, Soldiers were in Memphis earlier this year and taped an episode of Sun Studio Sessions. Season 3 of 13 new full half hour shows will air on select PBS affiliate and public television stations in January, then rolls out across U.S. the rest of the year. Actress Sophia Bush named Onward, Soldiers one of her favorite bands which led to a feature in One Tree Hill (Warner Brothers) with their first single ‘Let the Time Roll By’, 2011. See it here

Friday Night Short Films Premiere in Gaffney at the Capri Theatre. Abe Dueñas, a local filmmaker will premiere three of his latest short films Friday night, along with his first short film “El Caniquero” .
El Caniquero will start off the show, and is a film about a one eyed sharp shooting marble player. Jose is faced with a tough decision, after shooting out his sisters tooth by mistake. He must decide whether to play the game he loves one more time, to help his friends.
Dulce Vida will be the second film to show. Far from home in Lake Norman, Marcel, an eccentric but talented baker must come to grips with his two co-workers decision to now offer donuts in their high-end Patisserie. Marcel further complicates matters by insisting his best friends and dog, Tata, come to work with him while missing his family back home.
The Lot will show last, and was funded by a grant from the South Carolina film commission. It is a short film about Sam, a out of touch used car salesman. Sam has good intentions as a businessman. We notice this right away as he gives his only employee, Ernie, a free lesson on how to do business. But he has failed to stay in touch with how consumers shop for cars these days. This is evident with his latest customers, a married couple (Alex and Kimberly). Failing to notice right away that the wife is heading the deal, Sam tries to catch up to her way of doing business the entire film.
All of these films were shot in Gaffney, and would not have been possible without the support of local businesses and individuals. The Capri Theatre, Daddy’s Joe’s, Dee Tee’s, Mechanical Services, Mike’s Bike Shop, Pieces from the Past, La Vaquerita, The Cherokee Chronicle, The City of Gaffney, and Limestone College have been tremendous supporters of film in Cherokee County, and their involvement is greatly appreciated. Support like this, makes films on this level possible.
