‘Dosa Hunt’ To Debut in Williamsburg

Members of Vampire Weekend, Das Racist, Yeasayer, and Neon Indian appear in the film which will debut at Nitehawk Cinema on Friday 10/5, Saturday 10/6, and Monday 10/8! Dosas and samosas provided by Anjappar. From the Nitehawk:

“The Greatest Hunt For South Indian Food In NYC Ever Committed To Film!”

DOSA HUNT is an independent short documentary featuring Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij, Das Racist’s Himanshu Suri & Ashok “Dapwell” Kondabolu, Yeasayer’s Anand Wilder, Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo, jazz pianist Vijay Iyer, and Stereogum’s Executive Editor Amrit Singh — a group of music-world friends on a quest for their hometown’s best dosa. The traditional South Indian crepe is delicious enough to make a movie about, though our heroes’ journey doubles as an exploration of the shared and respective cultures of a vibrant group of NYC artists in the wilds of their city. DOSA HUNT is a snapshot of a transitional generation in America’s immigrant/art experience, in hot pursuit of good food.

The film’s premiere and opening run are at Nitehawk Cinema on Friday 10/5, Saturday 10/6, and Monday 10/8. Each ticket comes with dosa and samosa provided by Anjappar, while each screening will be followed by a Q&A moderated by music television great John Norris and an afterparty with free beer compliments of Kingfisher and DJ sets by DFA Records artist REWARDS (Friday), Jagjaguwar Records’ artist Small Black (Saturday), and Quinn Walker of Frenchkiss Records outfit Suckers (Monday).

Friday and Saturday doors and drinks start at 11PM, seating and food service is at 12:15AM, the screening is at 12:30AM, and the Q&A panel commences immediately thereafter. (Monday’s doors are at 1PM with the same schedule of events.) It will be a lot of fun, you should consider coming.

[VIDEO] Yeasayer at Music Hall of Williamsburg – 2.09.2010 – Full Concert

Watch the full concert at baeblemusic.com

Baeblemusic posted a full concert video of Yeasayer playing the Music Hall of Williamsburg back in February. If you need a refresher:

The band rips through their set, mostly new jams, as well as some definitive favorites off All Hour Cymbals like “2080” and “Sunrise”, both with updated synth-y tones, and both greater-than-or-equal-to any previous performance. But tracks like “O.N.E.” and “Madder Red” win the night. It is clear almost everyone in attendance has spun the record several million times before showing up, and know every word, and every beat drop. It is next to impossible to get a New York crowd to move. Yeasayer have people pole dancing the stage.
