NY Underground Film Fest screening
The very cool Nick Hallett has curated one of the Universal Acid videos into a screening at the New York Underground Film Festival, called How the West May Save Us Yet. It's all west coast music videos, by some really rad people. Our contribution is Abe Linkoln's remix of my performance of Push It. Come see it in all it's high-res, big screen glory! And say hi to me! I'll be in town for my show at Scope.
NEW YORK UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL SCREENING:
HOW THE WEST MAY SAVE US YET
THURSDAY, MARCH 9 at 10:30 pm
ticket price $8.50
Anthology Film Archives at 32 Second Ave @ 2nd Street
(F to 2nd Ave, 6 to Bleeker, L to 1st Ave)
From Olympia to Los Angeles, musicians and film artists up and down the Pacific coast are getting together to liberate the music video from its status-quo context as self-promotional tool and transform it into a new, confrontational art form, displacing major-label preen with honest, direct address and DIY visual kinesis Despite having next-to-nothing budgets, production values are way high.
Assembled by musician and curator Nick Hallett, the reel is a follow-up to last fall's '23 Reasons to Spare New York,' a syllabus of the Big Apple's new psychedelic wave. This screening will likewise involve its fair share of the heavy, heady visuals (this is the west coast, man!) Just imagine what MTV would look like if it still broadcast subversive, anti-consumerist, revolution-invoking, and seizure-inducing films, soundtracked by bands that actually push the boundaries of sound.
