for the Scene. It was a chance for me to totally geek out on all sorts of purple music, as well as ask him about his experiences in the industry. I'm proud of this piece, and I look forward to whatever y'all might think.
Also, he'll be introducing the Midnight show of Purple Rain at the Belcourt on Friday night, and I am stoked.

Tonight's installation of The Light + Sound Machine has a Halloween triple feature for the ages. '70s Age of Manson prescience, millennium angst Austrian found footage, and a sensual overload from the Czech New Wave. One night only, all on 16mm. Do not miss it.
the legendary Sandra Bernhard was a dream. She's always been an inspiration to me going back to 1988, when I first encountered her work terrorizing David Letterman, and also her spectacular one-woman show Without You I'm Nothing. I'm ecstatic to see her tomorrow night here in Nashville, as I've only ever seen her live once before, in New York at The Beacon back in the early late '90s on the Excuses for Bad Behavior Tour. Respect to one of the ladies who did it her way.

the latest film from those lovable freaks Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, and you should see it if you can. I have no idea what is going on with its release plan, but it's a jolting breath of fresh air and it's a grand theatrical experience to have.
cast and crew interview/discussion/press conference. The film is exceptional, very Verhoevian, and part of its pleasures are seeing it with an audience being buffeted about by its gloriously sick twists and turns.
