Todd Haynes Will Direct My Morning Jacket Concert Webcast

So is American Express and Vevo like the concert webcast version of HBO? Sure seems like it. So far, they've lured Spike Lee, Terry Gilliam and David Lynch to direct concert webcasts for John Legend & The Roots, Arcade Fire and Duran Duran, respectively, and now they've nabbed another high profile helmer.

So is American Express and Vevo like the concert webcast version of HBO? Sure seems like it. So far, they've lured Spike Lee, Terry Gilliam and David Lynch to direct concert webcasts for John Legend & The Roots, Arcade Fire and Duran Duran, respectively, and now they've nabbed another high profile helmer.

Todd Haynes will get the behind the cameras for a concert by My Morning Jacket and it's not the first time he's crossed paths with the band. If you recall, in his not-quite-a-biopic "I'm Not There," My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James appears singing "Going To Acapulco" (with Calexico helping out on the musical backing). Whether or not Haynes will bring some kind of distinctive touch -- maybe he'll dress the band in immaculate period attire? -- to the proceedings or will just let the music speak for itself remains to be seen.

Anyway, if you're a fan of the director or band or even better, both, the concert will stream on May 31st, which also happens to be the day My Morning Jacket's new album "Circuital" comes out. And if you missed Haynes' "Mildred Pierce," for shame -- it is still one of the best things we've watch so far this year. Check out a trailer for the webcast below. [New York Times via Pitchfork]
