David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption NYC 2019 lineup: Garbage, Mercury Rev, Phoebe Bridgers, Wye Oak & more


David Lynch is bringing back his Festival of Disruption to NYC on May 17 & 18 at Brooklyn Steel. While all the details haven’t been announced yet, Night 1 (5/17) features performances from Wye Oak, Mercury Rev and Fugazi offshoot The Messthetics, while the second day (5/18) features Garbage, Phoebe Bridgers and a DJ set from Nancy Whang. “Come to the Festival of Disruption, where we are dedicated to disrupting the old bad and bringing in the new good, which is peace, happiness, and good will to all,” says Lynch, adding, “Let’s Rock!”

Saturday also includes a separately ticketed daytime screening of  Mulholland Drive at Music Hall of Williamsburg followed by a Q&A with star Justin Theroux and Lynch (who’ll join via Skype). Tickets for the NYC Festival of Disruption go on sale Friday, March 22 at noon.

If you need more Lynch, he recently announced his own MasterClass on “Creativity and Film”:

In his MasterClass on Creativity and Film, David teaches you his approach to making films that defy the limitations of traditional storytelling. Learn how David catches new ideas and translates them into visionary narratives and atmospheric environments through cinema. Discover how he works with actors and other creatives on set, approaches production and postproduction, and embraces the art life in all he does. By deconstructing his process for catching new ideas and allowing them to guide each step in bringing his vision to the screen, from writing scripts to making the final cut, David teaches you to connect with your own creative capabilities and apply them to film and other forms of art.

In this online class, you’ll learn about:
• Attracting powerful ideas
• David’s creative process
• Writing screenplays
• Guerilla filmmaking
• Casting and working with actors
• Production design
• Lighting and cinematography
• Postproduction techniques
• Music and sound design
• Moving beyond traditional storytelling

Phoebe is also busy with Better Oblivion Community Center, Mercury Rev just released the guest-filled tribute to Bobbie Gentry (which Phoebe contributed to), Garbage continue to celebrate 2.0‘s anniversary, and Wye Oak play NYC tonight as part of the Ecstatic Music Festival.
