Kimpton Pittman Hotel
Opening this August, the Kimpton Pittman Hotel breathes new life into one of the city’s most historic buildings and serves as the first hotel to open in Deep Ellum. Originally built in 1916, the Knights of Pythias Temple served as a cultural hub and gathering place for the community. Throughout the 20s the Temple played host to special events, businesses, and live music from jazz and blues legends. Fast forward to 2020, after having fallen into disrepair, the space has been reimagined and restored to once again serve as a place for community, collaboration and celebration of the arts. The Kimpton Pittman Hotel has created this collection, in partnership with Good Records, to honor the musical heritage of the building and allow guests to bring some of the Pittman magic to their homes. We hope you enjoy!
Creem: America's Only Rock 'N' Roll Magazine
Presented by Good Records
Capturing the messy upheaval of the '70s just as rock was re-inventing itself, the film explores CREEM Magazine's humble beginnings in post-riot Detroit, follows its upward trajectory from underground paper to national powerhouse, then bears witness to its imminent demise following the tragic and untimely deaths of its visionary publisher, Barry Kramer, and its most famous alum and genius clown prince, Lester Bangs, a year later. Fifty years after publishing its first issue, "America's Only Rock 'n' Roll Magazine" remains a seditious spirit in music and culture.
