Brent Green

Best known for his darkly humorous, stop-motion, animated films that touch on themes of love, death, salvation, and the underworld, filmmaker Brent Green performs live this evening, narrating a series of new and recent films which will be screened alongside a live musical score performed by three extraordinary musicians: Jim Becker (Califone), Brendan Canty (Fugazi), and Fred Lonberg-Holm (Wilco, Freakwater). A self taught artist from Pennsylvania, Green writes, directs, builds, and narrates his short film animations, combining handcrafted figures with drawings and found props to create haunting, atmospheric backdrops for his alluringly twisted stories. For this evening Brent will premiere several new films and screen related recent works, including Old Country Songs, Louisville/Gravity, Walt Whitman?s Brain, Carlin, and Paulina Hollers. [February 13th @ The Kitchen in NYC]

Oh my God, who cares about FuGAYzi anymore. They are old and ugly.

anon @9:37 -- i know, fugazi is totally boring and unoriginal.

too bad they inspired (or were ripped off by?)every single band you listen to.

also too bad that this post has nothing to do with fugazi.

forgive me if you were being sarcastic and you actually appreciate what fugazi means, but i'm not as sharp or insecure as some of the other sharp, insecure people who frequent this site.

brent green rules. and so does brendan canty.
