Brian Jonestown Massacre / Dandy Warhols doc ‘DIG!’ screening at Nitehawk with director Q&A
Filmed over the course of seven years, Ondi Timoner's 2004 documentary DIG! follows the careers of The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Dandy Warhols, who began as partners in crime but became bitter rivals. Full of memorable exchanges, onstage meltdowns and fistfights, every kind of rock n' roll excess imaginable, real life Spinal Tap moments, broken sitars, and some great music, too, DIG! is a modern classic that is compelling even if you've never heard one note of either band. The film is getting a 15th anniversary, 35mm screening at Williamsburg's Nitehawk Cinema on June 27 with a Q&A with Timoner to follow. It's part of the BrooklynVegan-presented Music Driven series and tickets are on sale now. You can watch the trailer and few clips below.
Meanwhile over at Nitehawk Prospect Park there are two upcoming Music Driven screenings: a 35th anniversary screening of Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense on June 11 (sold out) and on July 11 they'll screen The Cure concert film Anniversary 1978-2018 which was filmed at the band's 40th anniversary in London's Hyde Park (tickets).
