1974. USA. Dir: Roman Polanski. With Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway. 130 min.
LA, 1937: A private detective who specializes in catching adulterers becomes entangled in a much larger plot involving murder, corruption, and water… Perhaps Polanski’s most iconic film, Chinatown is touted by many as the “perfect script” but succeeds just as well in atmosphere, as homage to the Hollywood noir and foreboding love letter to the City of Angels.
Remember It’s Chinatown? Featuring Jon Patten ’11, Aaron Khandros ’13, Howe Pearson ’12, and Owen Callahan ’12, the band soundtracked the Wes Pacific theme song, dropped a raucous album, and generally bulldozed its way through Wesleyan’s music scene. For one night only, they’re back. Aaron Khandros ’13 sent Wesleying a naked picture of one of the band members that appears after the jump (NSFW), as well as this blurb:
Furthermore, Malachi Martin goes as far as to say “…no person can be Possessed without some degree of cooperation on his or her part,” and “The effective cause of Possession is the voluntary collaboration of an individual, through his faculties of mind and will, with one or more of those bodiless, genderless creatures called demons.”
It’s Chinatown doesn’t come around too often anymore.

IT’S CHINATOWN (that is, Aaron Khandros ’13, Jon Patten ’11, Howe Pearson ’12, and Owen Callahan ’12), whose show this past Friday was cut tragically short by some jokester tripping Alpha Delt’s fire alarm, have just made available their debut album, The People’s Republic of Chinatown, on bandcamp. It’s thirteen tracks of immediate, spontaneous rocknroll, the kind this campus needs — so find it here. Play it loud. Peek through the cowhole. Don’t think you have the time? Forget it, Jake; It’s Chinatown.
It’s Chinatown is proud to announce the release of our new super-self-important album: The People’s Republic of It’s Chinatown, born from the womb of Snowmageddon. Come see us at Alpha Delt Friday night at 10:00 PM for no money at all, and help us to peek through the cowhole! We’ll also have a bunch of free CDs. Fellow rocknrollers Alek and the Barkats will be opening.
Date: Friday, February 4th Time: 10:00 PM Place: Alpha Delt Cost: nothing!
