This Weekend — Montreal and Austin, TX

8 12 2010

Reminder about this weekend and next Monday night in Austin — Adam O’Callaghan, who staged a massive Raymond Scott centennial celebration a couple of years ago in Montreal, has now organized a two-night event at the historic Rialto Theatre in downtown Montreal.

This will be a unique multimedia event at the beautiful Rialto, with the Montreal premiere of my film, and I’ll be doing a Q&A after the film both nights.

Rialto Theatre

Adam’s “Le Nouveau Raymond Scott Quintette” will perform some of Raymond Scott’s most famous chamber jazz compositions from the late-1930s.

Otis Fodder of The Bran Flakes, currently commissioned for the creation of a Raymond Scott remix album, will play Scott themed music into the night.

Really looking forward to being back in one of my favorite cities and working with Adam.  Here’s a link to official listing for the event

Alamo Drafthouse

And  two days later  I’ll be at the legendary original Alamo Drafthouse Theater (American spelling) in equally legendary Austin, Texas for a showing of the film as part of their Monday Music Signature Series.  The Alamo is a real favorite of dedicated lovers of  film, a great venue with a unique style and atmosphere that shows films that span all styles and genres, and I’m honored my film has been chosen to be part of their program.  I’ll be there for Q&A and all that good stuff…  Here’s a link:

Hope to see and meet a lot Austin area Texas fans of Raymond Scott there, (and I’ve heard from quite a few previously hoping for a showing there, so glad I can now report this is happening).
