Jose G (Junip) @ Irving Plaza in 2010 (more by Toby Tenembaum)

Jose Gonzalez will in fact be the musical guest at Rooftop Films' screening of the movie about him...

Rooftop Films is excited to announce that Jose Gonzalez will be the headlining artist for the 2011 Summer Series Live Music program. Rooftop's music programming has long been ahead of the curve and is an integral part of what makes Rooftop events so distinctive. Rooftop Films is proud to continue this tradition with Mr. Gonzalez's performance, along with concerts by rising stars such as the Brooklyn based bands Widowspeak, playing on May 27th and Snowmine, playing June 3rd. Additional bands will be announced shortly.

Mr. Gonzalez will perform on Sunday, June 19th, ahead of the new documentary The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of Jose Gonzalez, in which filmmakers Mikel Cee Karlsson and Fredrik Egerstrand follow the fascinating Swedish artist for three years at home, in the studio, and on tour around world.

Tickets for the Jose show and movie are on sale.

As previously mentioned, Prylf and other special guests will be performing with the musical movie "Sound of Noise" tonight (5/19). (And the timing of this is actually a coincidence but) Ela Orleans, who I just highlighted one post ago (and who also plays a show tonight) plays with the Rooftop film screening on 5/26.

Jose Gonzalez ALSO plays a NYC show tonight, but as part of his band Junip at Bowery Ballroom as part of their tour with Acrylics. High Highs are also on the bill. Tickets are still available.

Junip will be back NYC this summer to play a free show in Prospect Park with the Books and Doveman on June 17th, two days before Jose makes his 'Rooftop' appearance.
