Last month we shared a Q&A with the directors of Bushwick, about a Texas army invading the Brooklyn neighborhood. In honor of the movie’s release and his first time scoring a film, Aesop Rock is performing tomorrow night at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The hip-hop artist and producer– who was raised in Long Island, broke through in New York City, and recently moved to Oregon– has said he agreed to do the soundtrack in part because he “lived in Bushwick long ago.” Tickets to tomorrow’s show are $25 and Bushwick hits theaters and video on demand this Friday. Check out our Q&A with the film’s directors, Cary Murnion and Jon Milott, to find out why they set a civil war movie in the neighborhood, and what filming there was like.
If for some reason you can’t get out of bed Saturday afternoon, we have reason to believe that mysterious headliners Trip Metal Inzane All-Starz, playing at Aviv on Saturday night, are in fact Wolf Eyes under cover of darkness. So if you trust us on this one, maybe you’ll get to see Wolf Eyes play in a more genre appropriate setting. And hey, you won’t have to risk finding yourself on the meat market’s chopping block, so to speak, if you choose DIY venue over bar show.
Also, if Aviv is your poison of choice, you’ll be treated to the moonlight sonatas of metalic noise-rock outfit Couch Slut. We’re fans enough of female-fronted scream noise, but Dog Leather warrants more than a nod of the head. This fancy combo, a rare blend of DJ Dog Dick and Sewn Leather, amps out some seriously anxiety-inducing noise, dripping with enough horror film sound effects to keep us staring into space for days.
