This Friday at 10 a.m., and next Tuesday at 8 p.m., The Scenesters will be screening at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. For those who don’t know, Slamdance is the scrappy, indier cousin to Sundance, which happens concurrently in the same city. And for those (perhaps same people, perhaps others) who don’t know, yours truly was the music director for the film. Here’s a trailer. More info on the festival screening here.
Todd Berger, a good friend and the director/star of The Scenesters (which I supervised, musically speaking), was recently interviewed over at The A.V. Club. I actually had nothing to do with setting this up — the movie’s been generating considerable buzz on the festival circuit — but the shout-out in the opening paragraph doesn’t hurt none. Among the numerous bands featured in the film: The Franks, The Sonics, American Watercolor Movement, Tobacco, Thee More Shallows, Gavin Castleton, Wallpaper, Le Switch, The Cribs, Barr, Her Space Holiday, Fog and The Airborne Toxic Event.
