Proudly low budget and just as proudly absurd, this comedy directed by J. Anderson Mitchell and Jeremy Kipp Walker tells what happened when General Trius (Nils d'Aulaire), whose planet was on course for a catastrophic collision with a comet, came to Earth looking for a new home for his people.

His mission was to kill earthlings and take over the planet, but when he heard music, something unknown on Hondo, he became an earthling-lover, as well as a banjo player. Kevin (Jay Klaitz), sent from Hondo to take over the general's mission, is equally captivated by music, and he and the general, performing in their spacesuits, win over the New York club scene and save both planets. - [New York Times]

The story of Future Folk, the duo of General Trius and the Mighty Kevin from a distant planet called Hondo, was documented in a film last year. This year, Trius and Kevin are currently heading across the North American portion of Planet Earth to screen the film and play live. The tour, sponsored by our friends at DOSTUFF, pulls into NYC on July 23 at Knitting Factory. The NYC screening and show -- like all the dates on the tour -- is free with RSVP. Admission based on capacity, first come, first served.

All Future Folk dates are listed, along with the trailer for the film, below...

I'm always amazed at how negative hateful and just wrong most bv neckbeard comments get. I mean if you guys could pull yourself away from your porn addiction for just one day you may lighten up.
