Tunes On Film: It Might Get Loud coming October 16

October 5, 2009

It Might Get LoudThe alliance of music and film is taken a bit for granted these days, but let’s be honest: The two are inseparable. Take, for example, this, this and this. And that’s with omitting the way-obvious scene in Say Anything where new-wave-kid John Cusack proudly blares Peter Gabriel‘s “In Your Eyes” out of his ghettoblaster to woo his girl… something that no self-respecting new wave kid would have done, but we digress. (It’s not available online due to copyright restrictions, anyway.) The point is music and film are a match made in heaven, something Hollywood learned well in the ’80s and ’90s and that independent filmmakers have taken even further in the years since. 

The latest example is coming to the Moxie Cinema screens a week from this Friday. (In other words, 10/16.) (more…)

Time to rock onscreen: Rock On Music Video Competition screening is TONIGHT

August 17, 2009

rockonmusicvideocompIf you stopped paying attention to MTV about the time it traded Simon Rex for Carson Daly (a Stihl-to-Craftsman upgrade in the world of tooldom), let the music video medium suck you back in tonight. Moxie Cinema is screening the competing videos in the Rock On Music Video Competition, where local filmmakers teamed up with local bands to produce videos for songs. It’s the last chance to catch the videos on Moxie’s big screen and it starts at 7 p.m. Also worth noting: One representative from each video team is required by rule to be at the screenings, so if you like what you see you’ll be able to tell them in person. With videos made for Bender, The Black Raven Creative, Defected, The Love Breakers, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, STRIP and Worba, there should be an enticing variety of videos to see. Tickets for this and all of Moxie’s other Monday shows are $6. Consider it the music video artform’s “hello again,” with the added incentive of featuring bands you’ve supported in your music scene… and with no VJs anywhere in sight.
