The Point! is a tribute of our admiration to the film, the music, and the man himself: Harry Nilsson. To us, The Point! represents the most concentrated examples of what makes Nilsson Nilsson as well as the pinnacle of George Tipton’s inspired and original arrangements of Nilsson’s songs. The Pointless Forest will perform a live version of their original arrangements and edit of the movie, bring a date or two!
