The Album Leaf (STATESIDE PRESENTS) $20 Live Solo Set & Film Screening

Doors 7 PM show @ 7:30 PM sharp

The Album Leaf (Sub Pop Records) is the acclaimed solo project of Jimmy LaValle, the San Diego-based songwriter whose music is inspired by a number of genres including classical, jazz, and post-rock — LaValle constructs his own songs in a similarly eclectic manner, utilizing everything from ambient noise to field recordings to radio transmissions. Michael Raine’s new documentary film, BEYOND THERE documents The Album Leaf’s first ever tour of China and other parts of Asia. Filmed during their last international tour, The band treks across Asia in a final attempt to gain traction in the changing landscape of music distribution. BEYOND THERE features stunning live performances and a rarely seen, intimate glimpse at the anti-rockstar side of a band on the precipice of change.

SK8 or Die & Paranoid Park

Ska8-or-dieWEYLAND

Jocko Weyland presents a selection of rad skateboarding videos with a live improv-accompaniment by shredder JLownsbury & friends. Tonight’s second act is Gus Van Sant’s underappreciated skater feature, Paranoid Park. In this film, an unsolved murder at Portland’s infamous Paranoid Park skate park brings detectives to a local high school, propelling a young skater into a moral odyssey where he must not only deal with the pain and disconnect of adolescence but the consequences of his own actions. One of the most darkly intense films of Gus Van Sant’s fascinating career.

“…the work of a player who has fully internalized old time and bluegrass and who is now reshaping them into a brand new, highly individualized form…this guy isn’t naive; he’s a master” (Justin Farrar, Strawberry Flats)
billdaniel.net
“In his work, Daniel is attracted to outsiders in the most literal sense — people who live on the outside of civilization, for whom, in Daniel’s eyes, mere survival is an act of artistic expression.” -RES Magazine
