A quick awesome video here.
Enjoy. I love jamming. Roger, in case you’re wondering, and you should be, has a solo album on the way.
In connection with Plexifilm‘s release of the Kill the Moonlight DVD (which came out Tuesday), there will be a screening of the film in Los Angeles. The movie will be followed by a Q&A session with the film’s director, Steve Hanft. This will all be happening at the Echo Park Film Center in LA on Saturday March 25.
Here’s the relevant info from an e-mail Plexifilm sent me:
Los Angeles Events for KILL THE MOONLIGHT and GIGANTIC
Two Plexi related events are happening this Saturday at The Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles:
Saturday, March 25th
3pm – GUEST LECTURE SERIES WITH AJ SCHNACK AND SHIRLEY MOYERS
Meet the director and producer of GIGANTIC (A TALE OF TWO JOHNS) among other cinematic wonders!
8pm – KILL THE MOONLIGHT 16mm Film Screening and Q & A with director Steve Hanft
all happening at:
The Echo Park Film Center
1200 N. Alvarado Street (@ Sunset Blvd)
Los Angeles, CA 90026
The winner in the Best Music Video category was Subtle’s ‘Swan Meat’ (sidenote: you may remember that Subtle remixed ‘Farewell Ride’ for Guerolito). Mum’s ‘Will The Summer Make Good For All Our Sins’ was also nominated (and also lost). The public choice winner for Best Music Video was the Gorillaz’ ‘Feel Good Inc’.
Nacho Libre update: iTunes and quicktime.com will soon feature “confessionals” from Jack Black shot during the filming of Nacho Libre. There will be two per week starting March 15 and going for two and half months. In a crazy case of meta-promotion, there is a trailer out advertising these confessionals, which you can download here.
How is this Beck related? Well, Beck is scoring Nacho Libre. An earlier trailer for the movie featured already featured a new Beck song and it is likely that some/all of these confessionals will also have some new Beck tunes.
In fact, the new trailer linked above has a better version of the same song we’ve already heard, so that’s pretty darn exciting. Scratch that, I’m just stupid. This is a song that is in the other trailer, but not the Beck one. At least, I don’t think it’s Beck.
Confused? I’m sorry. I know that was poorly written, but I’m tired and can’t bring myself to edit it right now.
Don’t know what possessed me, but I started a Whiskeyclone myspace page:
Feel free to add us if you’d like!
Is this the start of a real tour? Bend is pretty near where the Sasquatch Festival is (where Beck will be performing the next day), so maybe this is a one-off deal. I certainly hope he does a real tour though.
mellow_777 points us to an interesting comment by Ross Harris a.k.a. Rossangeles a.k.a. The Enchanting Wizard of Rhythm: Steve Hanft made a real video for Sissyneck that was never released. I sure hope this turns up somewhere.
While we’re talking about videos/films by Steve that we’d like to see, I’d also like to mention Computer Chips and Salsa. This was a tour documentary Steve made (or started to make) during the crazy-long Odelay tours. It would be awesome to see that too.
Also, I’m stoked about the Kill the Moonlight DVD release.
PS from Ghost: YouTube also has a video by Ross for “Funky Little Song” here.
UPDATE: Ross has posted another comment saying that the Sissyneck video was shot at the same time as the Where It’s At video, and is basically an extended version of the line dance scene. He also says that he’s gonna see if Steve has a copy of it, which hopefully means we’ll get to see this eventually!
