If you’re a Van Halen fan and happen to be in New York City, you should think about heading to Tribeca Film Festival. A short documentary about the band is screening at the festival this week, “Lost Weekend.”
The 14-minute film tells the story of a Van Halen fan,Kurt Jefferis, who won MTV’s Lost Weekend contest in 1984 for the chance to party with the band for 48 hours. Jefferis was scooped up in a limo. flown out to Detroit and decked out in Van Halen merch to go cause a ruckus with the band – surely an unforgettable moment in his life, which he’s said left him “in recovery and shock for many days afterwards.”
Fans still have a chance to catch the final screenings of the doc this week, tomorrow and on May 4th.
