All praises due, once again, to the honorable David Lowery for informing me about an upcoming Museum of Moving Image sponsored screening of THERE WILL BE BLOOD at the Chelsea West on December 11th. Both PTA and DDL will be in attendance. While I'm sure I could find my way into a free screening sometime within the next few weeks, these are the reasons why I live in New York City and so I have sucked it up and bought a ticket for what promises to be a very special night. Go here to buy tickets for yourself.
Speaking of special nights, Max Richter more than delivered last night. The set list played like the COCAINE ANGEL soundtrack, something that I tried very hard to ignore, but it was just about impossible not to. Max said that he's trying to arrange a more legitimate tour in the spring, and I hope that comes to fruition, because I could certainly use a night like that in my life at least once or twice a year. Soooooo pretty.
But back to the honorable David Lowery, whose latest contribution to the "Ola Podrida Music Video Project" is another fine achievement. While the Ola Podrida record has no lesser tracks on it, album closer "Eastbound" is a particularly beautiful number. Teaming up with Barlow Jacobs (LOW AND BEHOLD), David delivers an inspired interpretation of the other David's sad and pretty song.
