This Week in Music is out! Notable: Surfside 7 is finally open on Linden Street! Wahoooo!!!
While we (kind of) patiently wait out Cohere Bandwidth construction this winter, we keep looking for ways to support and connect with our community. Because that’s our favorite part anyway, and it requires zero hard hats. Fortunately, our friends at SpokesBUZZ have just the ticket for keeping our minds off our winter woes. And better yet: it’s a movie ticket! Our favorite nonprofit is bringing back Cinemusico — their music-meets-movies event series that brings songs and cinema together onscreen. The event includes the usual music community camaraderie, with local bands screening their music videos prior to a feature-length music-centric film. Cohere Bandwidth is proud to sponsor the first Cinemusico of 2015 on Thursday, Feb. 26 at 6 p.m., at the Lyric Cinema Cafe.
While the last week in February might seem like a distant point on the horizon, let us explain why you should buy a ticket NOW:
- SpokesBUZZ hasn’t hosted a Cinemusico event since 2012 … and the community tends to turn up in force, bands AND fans
- This particular Cinemusico will feature music videos by known rockers and current SpokesBUZZ bands Wiredogs and Shatterproof …
- …AND a brand-new video from SpokesBUZZ alumni band Wire Faces. They haven’t release a music video in 9 months, not since Space Age Trees. It’s like we’ve all been pregnant with anticipation.
- The new Wire Faces video includes a star-studded cast of young local actors, including members of Slow Caves and Yettie
- …PLUS it is the product of the geniuses over at NoCoast Artists, including director Tomas Herrera
And that’s just the stuff that happens before the featured movie starts. Cinemusico’s featured movie this time around?
That’s right, the Rob Reiner rock-mockumentary that Time Out London named The Best Comedy Film. EVER. The only movie that IMDB rates on a scale of one to ELEVEN. The movie that celebrated its 30th birthday last year but still remains ridiculously relevant to rock and roll. We’re so excited to see it with you that it’s as if there’s a cucumber in our pants. And if that doesn’t ring any bells for you, well then you’d really better be there to brush up on your legendary rock films.
Our favorite part of the whole event is the part where we get to hang out with some of our beloved local musicians and laugh and clap and watch music movies together. We’re not gonna lie. However, it’s also pretty neat that a portion of the evening’s proceeds will support SpokesBUZZ, which is why we’re so happy to kick down for the cause. We hope you’ll get a ticket and join us for Cinemusico on Feb. 26!
