Connan Mockasin preps ‘Jassbusters,’ screening “absurdist” film on fall tour
Connan Mockasin will be on tour this fall and it looks to be something special, not that he ever does "normal.' At it he will screen Part 1 of Bostyn 'n Dobysn, "the world's first absurdist melodrama" that is described as this: "Based on comics and short films Mockasin made 20 years ago, Bostyn ’n Dobsyn is a five-part film about a music teacher, Bostyn, his student Dobsyn, and Bostyn's band, Jassbusters." After the screening, Connan and his band will appear in character as Jassbusters, which is also the name of Connan's new album that's due out this fall on Mexican Summer. After the Jassbusters performance, Connan's also expected to do a solo set.
After dates in LA, San Francisco, Toronto, Montreal and Europe, Connan will bring Bostyn n' Dobsyn to Brooklyn for a show at Murmrr Theatre on November 7. Tickets for Murmrr go on sale Friday, July 20 at noon.
