The film festival will also feature a few other music-related films, including a documentary on Genesis P-Orridge entitled The Ballad of Genesis & Lady Jaye on June 23rd which will be followed by a free concert by Thee Majesty (which features Genesis). Singer-songwriter Goh Nakamura stars in the feature Surrogate Valentine which screens on June 23rd which will be followed by a concert at nearby Frankie's Lounge.
