Film Streams more than a dream; Voxtrot, Mariannes tonight

Category: Blog — @ 12:29 pm August 3, 2005

Yes, I know to day’s Lazy-i feature story about the origins of the Film Streams independent movie house project (read it here) isn’t technically a music story and that Lazy-I is technically supposed to be focused on music, specifically music of the Omaha and/or indie rock variety, however I still think the subject matter is more than appropriate considering how the theater will be entwined with the Slowdown bar/music hall/offices owned and operated by the fine folks at Saddle Creek Records. And also considering that the two entities are essentially partners. Cut me some slack, will ya? I’m as excited about Film Streams as I am about Slowdown, me being the avid filmgoing that I am — I probably go out to the movies at least 50 times a year and with Film Streams opening next year, I could see that number easily double.

Tonight’s show: Austin’s Voxtrot with The Mariannes at O’Leaver’s. Listening to “The Start of Something,” a tune on Voxtrot’s MySpace and all I can say is these guys must listen to a lot of Smiths albums. For The Mariannes, consider this a warm-up gig before they take the big stage Aug. 16 opening for The Faint at Sokol Auditorium.
