I 2013 Cinemateket in Copenhagen held their annual International Musik Filmfestival with the best program ever!
Among the highlights of the program was DIG! – about the music industry’s battle to sign The Brian Jonestown Massacre and/or The Dandy Warhols. One of the best music documentaries ever made.
Nothing happens in Kathmandu on the art and culture scene. So seeing this program was difficult – especially since I was working at Capitol during the battle and remembered the hype.
The good thing about Kathmandu is that that everything is possible. So what was meant as a funny comment to my friend and festival curator the Torsten Hvass why don’t we make a Musik Film Festival in Kathmandu – I MUST see DIG! ended up becoming reality.
3 months later we kicked off Kathmandu International Filmfestival 2013. And I saw DIG! for the first time.
Kathmandu, 2 June
Why all this talk about BJM?
Check out this program below – then you will know why 🙂
On 9 September The Brian Jonestown Massacre enters the stage at the Reverence 2016 in Valada only 1 hrs drive from Lisbon.
Not only are they headlining the program on the 9th – on the same day plays another top act The Raveonettes from Denmark.
The following day is retro day with old favorites like The Damned, The Sisters of Mercy & Killing Joke topping the program.
BUT the the band I’m personally looking forward to see is Oresund Space Collective – their Spacerock / Spacepop / Spaceimprovisations is the most interesting music coming from Denmark I’ve listened to in many years.
We love music at Tings.
And all kinds of music as long as it’s original and well produced. If you are curious about what you can expect to hear in the Lounge check our our Neverending Compilation Tings Tracks that consists of 500 tracks.
Not any particular genre, not any particular bpm, not from any particular period, not any particular part of the world… just good tracks. New and old. But always tracks with a twist – a remix, mashup, an outtake, a cover…
