TVOTR at Pitchfork Fest (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
TVOTR

Members of TV on the Radio are presenting the film version of their recently released album Nine Types of Light on September 7 at Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn. According to Nitehawk Cinema's website:

Nine Types Of Light is as much an film as it is a album by TV On The Radio. The movie is meant to be a visual re-imagining of the record, and includes a music video for every song on the album. The band personally asked their friends and the filmmakers they admired to help direct the music videos. Tunde Adebimpe, the director for the full Nine Types Of Light movie, storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future.
Tickets for the event are on sale now, and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to win are below, along with a video of the entire film.

The screening is the day before TV on the Radio play Williamsburg Waterfront with Broken Social Scene (9/8). Tickets for that show are still on sale.

All dates, video, and contest details below...

Black folks love Heineken. Don't hold it against them.

It wasn't Heineken, it was Heineken Light. It's awful. It's a stretch to even call it beer.

There are nine types of Heineken Light??

You know, you may as well have TVOTR's music be in Heineken commercials from now on. Seems fitting now.
