Notes from the Road

October 2010

CIFF 2010: ‘Bitter Feast’ (Joe Maggio, 2010)

Bitter Feast warns potential viewers what they may encounter right in the title. Yes, it's a horror movie about food culture. Unfortunately, it's not much of a feast, but it will leave something of a bitter taste.


Saves the Day: 1 Oct 2010 - Ramapo College, NJ

Saves The Day literally stole the show with a great live performance, great live set and an unparalleled energy.


CIFF 2010: ‘The Robber’ (Benjamin Heisenberg, 2010)

Based on the life of Johann Kastenberger, better known as "Pump-gun Ronnie", The Robber succeeds by subverting the normal routine for a film about robbers.


The New Deal: 24 Sept 2010 - Electric Factory, Philadelphia

Seeing the New Deal is simply to experience the musical bending of rock and electronic elements into a unyielding experience.


‘LennonNYC’ Finds It Easy Living With Eyes Closed

Michael Epstein's newest entry to PBS's American Masters series looks great, sounds better, and offers very little we didn't already know about John Lennon -- and glosses over a lot that we do.


Eels + Jessica Hoop: 1 October 2010 - Chicago

Eels returned to Chicago to play a 90-minute set that was heavy on rock 'n' roll and light on soft vulnerabilities.


Eels: 26 September 2010 - Washington D.C.

What do the Eels and ZZ Top have in common? More than you might expect...


The Tallest Man on Earth + S. Carey: 27.Sep.2010 - New York

The Tallest Man on Earth, though solo, had no problems selling out Webster Hall Monday night or conveying complete control alone onstage.


September 2010

Vampire Weekend rocks Radio City Music Hall for its final night playing NYC.


Billy Idol + Slash: 10 September 2010 - Chicago
