Upstater Rex Fowler is one half of the venerated folk rock duo Aztec Two Step, an outfit that’s been a firm favorite of the coffeehouse and folk festival circuit since forming in 1971. And now Fowler’s added another role to his creative endeavors, that of a filmmaker. Recently, he completed work on 200 Cadillacs, a feature-length documentary focusing on Elvis Presley that screens next week as part of celebration of his 80th birthday at the Towne Crier.

Conceived and co-produced by Fowler, 200 Cadillacs showcases the often forgotten generosity of Presley, one of the biggest pop culture icons of the 20th century. Following the film, the director will lead a Q&A session. The evening will conclude with a live concert of the King’s early Sun and RCA records classics performed by Rex and his Rockabilly Kings, who are comprised of Fowler and Hudson Valley favorites Billy and Muddy Roues on electric guitar and slap-back bass and Joe Geary of the Wiyos on drums. The venue will also offer some special “Eat Like Elvis” selections on the evening’s menu.
