All Tomorrow’s Parties

Synopsis:

Tuesday, December 1st @ 8:00 PM & 11:00 PM


All Tomorrow's Parties

Ever wonder what summer camp with Nick Cave, Daniel Johnston and Iggy Pop would feel like? The kaleidoscopic All Tomorrow’s Parties is a headlong plunge into the transatlantic music festival of the same name, in which an out-of-season holiday camp on the coast of England is transmogrified into a swirling combination of cutting-edge music, crazy golf and chalet-living, all curated by a single band or artist. A riotous romp through the festival's past several years, the film's got live performances from a ridiculous amount of great bands both new and old: Sonic Youth, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Gossip, Mogwai, GZA, Iggy and the Stooges, Slint, Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, Belle and Sebastian, Patti Smith, Battles, Grinderman (featuring Nick Cave), Portishead and more. In the spirit of the fest, All Tomorrow's Parties is also a bursting bricolage originating from the found or contributed HD, Super-8, camcorder and mobile phone footage of over two hundred filmmakers, with key sequences from co-director Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation). And did we mention that there will be splitscreens? All great concert films deserve a few splitscreens. DJ Michael Stock (Part Time Punks) will be manning the decks both before and after the screenings!
Dir. Jonathan Caouette & various, 2009, digital presentation, 82 min.

Co-presented by Amoeba Records, Part Time Punks and L.A. Record
