Nick Cave

What sets 20,000 Days... apart from most documentaries is that it doesn't follow the usual linear and chronological narrative; it instead it opts to jump around -- quite often -- blurring the lines between fiction and reality. In the film, Cave himself says that writing and creating stories is about throwing together two of the most unlikely things, and seeing what happens. That train of thought forms the basis of his songwriting technique, as well as the entire film's concept. It contains scenes in which Cave has conversations in his car with friends, friends who disappear as abruptly as they appear, leaving him driving quietly alone. Were these conversations scripted within Cave's mind, or were they real? Scenes like this are scattered throughout the film and kept me constantly intrigued. [BV Chicago]
20,000 Days on Earth, Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard's new film of which Nick Cave is the subject, recently screened at Chicago's CIMM Fest (check out an excerpt of Milos Markicevic's review on BV Chicago above and read the whole thing here) and now it's set to screen at multiple North American cities in conjunction with Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' upcoming tour.

In NYC, the film screens on August 4 at Florence Gould Hall Theater at The French Institute. At that date, and a select few others, Nick Cave will be there for a conversation and solo performance. All screening dates are listed below.

The Bad Seeds tour hits NYC soon before that on July 26 at Prospect Park and July 27 at Hammerstein Ballroom with Nicole Atkins on both dates, and Devendra Banhart also on night 1. Tickets for both shows are still available.

Posted by Anonymous | June 4, 2014 11:02 AM

Posted by Anonymous | June 4, 2014 12:22 PM

^3 or 4 songs and not worth the 100 ticket price

why don't you call the venue and complain? ;)

The show was well worth the price. Also, this was put on the US distributor of the film, so not sure how much Nick had a say in the price of tickets. Seeing the way people were parting with $50 for a movie poster being sold at the show, I doubt it was much of a concern for those that attended. As for your I Told You So points, you were off for this show, here is the setlist of the show...

-Sad Waters
-Into My Arms
-The Mercy Seat
-Mermaids (First time he has played this solo)
-Watching Alice
-The Ship Song
-God is in the House
-And No More Shall We Part
-Love Letter

I think Nick would have loved to have played more songs and answered less questions. Amazing show, small venue. The only complaint is people requesting songs that he plays every show...The Mercy Seat & Love Letter. If you were going to ask him to play something, at least you could have made it something not often played.
