Dolls / Burn To Shine 2
Unwanted bit of knowledge from the evening: David was wearing pants so tight they would have embarrassed Robert Plant. He hangs to the right, if you care about that sort of thing.
The second Burn To Shine dvd is going to be released on August 23. This second film features these Chicago-based bands:
Wilco, Shellac, Tortoise, Freakwater, Tight Phantomz, Pit er Pat, The Ponys, The Lonesome Organist, and the Red Eyed Legends.
I saw this a few months ago at The Warehouse. Very nice. From the Trixie site:
Burn to Shine is a film series produced by Fugazi's Brendan Canty and directed by film maker Christoph Green. ...
We travel from town to town and film bands performing in houses that are about to be demolished or burned to the ground. They document the doomed house, the bands, and the demolition, put it together in a 45 minute movie, put it out on DVD and move on to the next town. Each DVD/town has a different curator that is entrenched in the respective music scene and who can pick out what he or she considers their favorite bands. This allows us to put the bands in a geocentric context.
You can order it from the Trixie site. Go buy it.
