Drew & Brent Live Film Performance

By Mike Everleth ⋅ October 14, 2008

This is a quick note (quick so i can get it up before the performance actually starts) to say that Drew & The Medicinal Pen and Brent Green will be playing live improvised soundtracks to their films at The Stone in Brooklyn tonight at 9:45 p.m. Playing with them will be Brendan Canty of Fugazi — one of my favorite bands, by the way — and Rodney McLaughlin.

I’ve written about Drew several times on this site. I really enjoy his music. And, for another Drew event, I wrote about Brent in this post. Both guys are terrific filmmakers and great musicians with a similar sensibility. Throw a Fugazi member in the mix and you’ve got a nice show on your hands. If I still lived in Brooklyn, I’d be there.

Full info regarding the show is below. And to give you a little taste of what to expect, I’ve embedded a brief video clip of one of Brent’s previous performances. Plus, please visit Drew’s MySpace page to give his music a listen.

P.S. Looking over The Stone’s calendar, another good show will be playing tomorrow night. Dynasty Handbag Nao Bustamante, aka Jibz Cameron, also will be playing live along with her films. I favorably reviewed her hilarious short film The Quiet Storm in this roundup of shorts from the ATA Film & Video Festival.
