I was introduced to the wonderful sounding South African band, Look Out Kid, by PSD favorite Tiger Darrow. Click thru for an interview with Look Out Kid’s talented Andrew Orkin who discusses the band, South Africa, NYU and much more.
“Rough, raw and unapologetically inspirational, LET FURY HAVE THE HOUR is a charged journey into the heart of the creative counter-culture in 2012. In a time of global challenges, big questions and by-the-numbers politics, this upbeat, outspoken film tracks the story of the artists, writers, thinkers and musicians who have gone underground to re-imagine the world – honing in on equality, community and engaged creativity – in exuberantly paradigm-busting ways.”
At this year’s fantastic 24fps International Short Film Festival one of the award-winning films that stood out to me was Shawn Christensen’s, Curfew. Click thru for an interview with Shawn about his career, the short, and the wonderful feature news he has!
Kristoffer Diaz highly entertaining and moving play has transformed the Wyly Theater into a rowdy Wrestling (or ‘Rasling as my former Sports Broadcasting professor used to call it – Bill Mercer you rule!) Ring. Click through for more info on the wonderful play, a few film festivals, Eddie Vedder and some more awesome things happening in November.
“The Colurs combine contemporary pop production with the songwriting aesthetics of Brian Wilson, Todd Rundgren, and The Beatles, and lush orchestral arrangements reminiscent of scores by Frank Churchill and Oliver Wallace (from Disney’s Alice In Wonderland, Bambi, etc.), to create a fresh new sound.”
I was able to chat with Max Townsley and Drew Erickson aka The Colurs. They also played an “acoustic” version of their song Washed Away. Click thru already!
This Friday, July 13th, documentary DECONSTRUCTING DAD makes it theatrical debut at NYC’s Quad Theater for a one-week run. PSD was able to chat with the Writer/Director/Producer of the film, Stan Warnow.
In what has quickly become one of our favorite things to do in Dallas during the summer, the Homegrown Music and Arts Festival returns for its third edition this Saturday, May 26. As per usual, the fest will take part at Downtown Dallas’ Main Street Garden Park, and will feature 14 regional and local acts (including a few PSD faves).
