Such a set-up recalls the prehistoric days when PTA edited his films from VCR to VCR; and recalls the production company of EWS : "Hobby Films".

PTA—shooting his "event film" as if it were a home movie!

Always take his scoops with a grain of salt, but his most recent one about Euphoria ended up being true and he was the first to claim this was going to be $100 million before the trades mentioned it a few days later, so who knows. He's had some bad misses, too. The "secret" David Lynch movie being the biggest lol

Saw Julia Jacklin & Mitski last night. Beautiful show, seated in a hall from 1889, the Auditorium Theater - where the Joffrey ballet company performaned for two decades.



Julia's set was all guitar and amplifier, one woman carrying a whole lot of power in her lyrics and gain-steeped chords. Really dug Crushing and Pre-Pleasure so it was an ultimate joy to watch her perform those tracks by herself, filling the auditorium. Behind me, before the show started, highschoolers - "You're ready for your AP tests?" - had to google the Aussie songstress. "Is she verified?" After a particular howl of a song, she wins at least one 'em over. "Oh, I'm dding Miss Jacklin to the playlist ~"

Mitski's was an all-together romantic-suite with a whole lot of southern influenced jamming. New arrangements of her canon with organ, fiddle, rollicking toms and fresh choreography. Notably there's a whole lot of light and shadows going on with the set design, complimenting the poetic morbidness of her latest album. Love to mourn and cry in the same set! Sick stuff. Her drummer, Bruno Esrubilsky - the whole band really, Patrick Hyland on guitar iz her production guru, Jeni Magana's been on electric and stand up bass for a decade with her now, but to highlight my favorite of the gang - went into deep zones and back.

Two amazing Slowdive gigs at Copenhagen in January.
I saw Dina Ögon last Friday and they were amazing. I think Tyler The Creator hailed them a while back.

I have tickets for Dinosaur Jr and Judas Priest in the summer. Nick Cave and the bad seeds in October.

But the one I'm mostly looking forward to is going to Horsens in Denmark in July to see The War On Drugs. For the third time in three years. And Mew is opening up for them so it's going to be extra special (no pun intended!)

For the real yo!

Edit: I recommend you all bdrmm a shoegaze ish band signed on Mogwai's own label. If they come to the US make sure don't to miss them!

Nice to see the Barry Jenkins' The Underground Railroad coming to Criterion.

Jenkins often states in interviews that PTA is one of his inspirations.
