Road Trip: Sonic Youth – Sleeping Nights Awake

25 06 2008

Our friends over at the Austin Film Festival are presenting a screening of Sonic Youth: Sleeping Nights Awake today at the Alamo Lake Creek. Yeah, it’s pretty far and, well, it’s not really our favorite of all of the Alamo locations but for Sonic Youth, we will be making the journey.

 

Here is some more info via the AFF website:

AFF Presents…at the Alamo Lakecreek
“Sonic Youth: Sleeping Nights Awake”

WRITER/DIRECTOR Michael Albright in attendance!

Take a behind the scenes look at one of the most influential indie bands of all time when a group of seven high school students set out to make a documentary on Sonic Youth!

As part of a non-profit called ‘Project Moonshine’, these teens were given cameras and a few days to be let loose and record a day in the life of Sonic Youth. The film is filled with behind-the-scenes interviews, original performances and the enveloping experience of a Sonic Youth concert from a new perspective. The result is a point of view that is authentically refreshing; a unique situation that allows the students to approach the band with an honesty and innocence that’s hard to find in veteran documentary filmmakers.
