The Legend of Merv Conn Grows

Described by The Washington Post as "a Washington fixture for 70 years," accordion player Merv Conn is about to get his 15 minutes of fame. Conn, 86, is the subject of The Legend of Merv Conn, a new documentary by filmmaker Jeff Krulik.

Conn's 87th birthday is this Sunday, and Krulik -- most famous for cult documentary Heavy Metal Parking Lot -- will be screening the new film (and arranging a 21-accordion salute to the birthday boy). Get all the details.
