Rooftop Films Brings Focus to New York Non-Fiction Short Films

Rooftop Films is turning its projector towards New York City and its residents this Friday night for its New York Non-Fiction Short Film screening. The majority of the filmmakers are New Yorkers themselves, with topics as diverse as a “cinematographical voyage” into Greenpoint, the Red Hook Pool, a 74-year-old jazz musician recording his album, and the Mysterious Hair Man of Williamsburg.

Drunk History Vol. 1 even manages to find its way in there somehow (Alexander Hamilton was a New Yorker — he was our delegate to the Constitutional Convention and the Congress of the Confederation who lived and died here.)

The doors at the Open Road Rooftop (350 Grand St.) open at 8pm, live music at 8:30, and the films are at 9pm. The after-party is an open bar at Fontana’s (105 Eldridge St.). If you haven’t been to a Rooftop Films screening yet this summer, this would be a great one to kick things off.

[PICS] Warpaint and Beach Fossils at the Knitting Factory 6.15.10

I cannot confess my love for Warpaint any further than saying that they are the sunshine induced sonic love child of HEALTH and Beach House, two FREEwilly favorites. I’ll let your love grow organically with this:

Welcome back Noisemakers, we’ve missed you! Here are some photos from last night’s show:

Al Lover – Woodsist Remixed (Free Download)

Alex Gundlach made a fantastic one-track remix album of some of his favorite songs by bands released on Woodsist. Download it for free HERE.

He writes:

This is a project I threw together over the last few weeks. Woodsist is probably one of my favorite labels out right now. Everything they put out is at least interesting, if now really f’ing good. Most of the records remind me of some weird psychedelic shit from the sixties I’d love to sample, with a post-punk aesthetics added for extra awesomeness. Anyhow, I like the music so much I decided to remix some of my favorite tracks from a few of the releases on the label. They are more beats using small parts of the songs than remixes, but remixes sounds cooler. So fuck it, it’s a remix album. Super low-fi, off-kilter, distortion heavy, weirdo beats. This is definitely an experimental approach to beat making for me.

Track list:

The Fresh & Onlys – What Goes in Circles

Ganglians – 100 years

Kurt Vile – Breathing Out

The Art Museums – So Your Baby Doesn’t Love You Any More

Woods – Born to Lose

The Mayfair Set – Three of me

Moon Duo – In The Trees

Meneguar – The Morning, The night

Fergus & Geronimo – Last Letter

Meth Teeth – I Was Wrong

Wavves – Vermin

Real Estate – Black Lake

Woods – Til the Sun Rips
