Boston duo The Great Pattern came into our studio in to play this great live set in December.
As promised, we’ll be posting full recordings of our show online just in case you don’t catch it all live.
See you on Thursday! Well, I won’t actually see you. Or even hear you. But you’ll hear me and that’s what counts.
If you’re in or around Boston, I’d definitely suggest you check out the Independent Film Festival Boston. Starting tomorrow and lasting until May 4th, the IFFB will show 93 films that you’re not likely to see in major theaters.
A few that caught my attention:
Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop: a documentary following Conan in the months between leaving The Tonight Show and starting Conan, during which he was contractually prohibited from appearing on TV.
13 Assassins: Takashi Miike’s new epic samurai film that’s got me drooling.
I’m also interested in seeing some shorts. Short films are always nice because… well, they’re shorter. You go in expecting less and they’re often pleasantly surprising. If you don’t like a short, don’t worry because another one will be on shortly. They play in collections so it’s like 7 movies for the price of one.
I’m somewhat intrigued by Tatooine: “The original Star Wars trilogy re-imagined in glorious cut paper animation.” 1) it’s the whole trilogy in two minutes 2) it’s funny to think of this in contrast with all the re-mastering that’s happened with the original trilogy.
My advice: check out the fest’s website for the schedule and info on all the movies, find some that you’d like to see, and buy the tickets online asap. The tickets are going fast, and it’s cheaper if you buy them online.
Be sure to let us know what you think of the festival and of course we’ll talk about whatever we see on the show!
