This movie is set to release just in time for the X-Mas session and is on my hit list. It won a Grand Prix at Cannes and has a pretty outstanding rating on Rotten Tomatoes and from all the buzz I’m hearing about it, a likely Oscar contender. It’s been a while sine we’ve heard from the Coen brothers and lucky for us, they have paired up with T Bone again to win over the hearts of movie and folk music buffs alike. Premiering at TIFF on December 20th, this movie is a must see! Did I forget to mention that Justin Timberlake is also apart of this cast?… yah…. a must see.

Since Jay Z is married to Beyonce he can do no wrong as she is angel sent from diva heaven. God I love her.
Anyways, Jay had a little private rap show (apparently my invite got lost in the mail) and he invited some of the elite art folk in the New York vicinity to bare witness to his rappers delight. Even Marina Abraovic got an invite… Art is all in the eye of the beholder however you can’t argue with the fact that this guy has got some serious swag.

Checked out the Volcano Choir show at The Pheonix last night, and Sylvan Esso opened for them. They were absolutely unreal. I haven’t always been impressed by opening bands, but these guys were amazing. Their first song (featured here) started off slow, but when the beat dropped in I was instantly sold. Great selection by Volcano Choir. I’ve been listening to them all morning, and think you should too!
Side bar: check out The Pheonix’s site for upcoming shows. They’ve got a pretty solid line-up for the next few months. Tempted to check out MS MR and Daughter.
Last night I checked out the Yeah Yeah Yeahs at Echo Beach. What an unreal show that included a giant eyeball being thrown out into the crowd. An awesome way to ring in Canada’s birthday. In fairness, I hadn’t listened to the band in awhile when I bought my ticket, but the show has definitely reminded me how sick a band they are. Give their new single “Despair” a listen.
