Review by Gerry Jenn Wilson
For those about to rock . . . be
prepared to salute Canadian Filmmaker/Director/Rock and Roll Diva
Extraordinaire . . . Ms. Paula ("Fuck Y'all") Tiberius for giving birth
to one of the finest " FemmeFatale " Raw Empowered Rock 'n' Roll films that this Punk Globe "Trashmaven" has ever had the pleasure of reviewing!!
is a flammable tale of a wild n' wanton dreadlock-clad minx named
"Goldi" who is destined to seek out "The Holy R&R Grail!"
Goldi's mundane day job as a cappuccino barrista is merely a stepping stone to finance her 1st axe -- a sweet vintage Melody Maker guitar -- and pay the rent on a room she
moves into in an all male punk rock house . . . where the lads are frisky and the mice are even friendlier!!!!
is not afraid to stage dive headfirst into Toronto's R&R cesspool
and throw caution to the wind at a gig, at Lee's Palace, where she
rocks out to
" Robin Black and the Intergalactic Rock Stars."
goes back stage to meet the band and the next thing you know she is
doing the "Between the Sheets Watusi" with hair dresser/ turned singer
" Robin (Fucking) Black!" Punk Globe's cinema queen "Goldi" is no one trick pony!
the groupie label, Goldi begins turning her roommate's relatively
unknown boy band around after making guest appearances with them at
Lee's Palace singing the Teenage Head" hit favorite, "Lets Shake!!!"
The crowd goes wild and "Goldi Fever" begins to spread in the T.O music
scene . . .
Goldi's guest appearance leaves the fans wanting more! . .
. . . Meanwhile back at the
bandhouse all that glistens is not Goldi!..The boys decide to kick her
out of the project right when the going gets good!! . . . What is a poor
"Goldi Grrl " to do!?..(Not being a lassie to pout alone), our golden
heroine decides to "Tie One On" at a Cheerleader gig where she is
caught smooching one of the band members in the back alley of Lee's
Palace (by a disgruntled girlfriend) who proceeds to kick Goldi's
blonde dreadlocks to the
curb. . . not a pretty sight!
the going gets tough -- Goldi's gal pals come to her emotional rescue
and save the day by pooling together their tip money and purchasing
Goldi the beloved Vintage Melody Maker guitar of her dreams! Magically
. . . Goldi gets her "Groove Back " by song writing, recording her
first demo, and forming her own band . . . breaking free from the
suppressive boy band rules . . . and finally dancing to the beat of her
own rock and roll dream!!
gives director Paula Tiberius killer kudos for creating " GoldiRocks,"
and special "Shout-Outs" for supporting l"Teenage Head" and bringing
The Real Canadian Music Scene ON!!
