The Talkies / Bogda Art Show / Tangerine Festival Photo Recap

January 31, 2008

From one weekend to the next…

“Night of the Living Dead” is playing February 1st at 11:55 p.m and February 2nd at 9:30 p.m.  George Romero will be providing commentary on the Feb 2nd showing.

Visit thetalkies.net for ticket information.

“The Talkies is the long-time pet project-come true of founder Tim Massett that first came to fruition in October 2006.  It is essentially cinema shouting back against the DVD/home theater. It’s a 35mm, two-night event. The first night we screen a classic film in 35mm. The next night, not only does the director join us, but he or she also provides running commentary throughout the screening. The audience watches and listens along to both the director and the film. It’s taking something the DVD offers (the alternate commentary track) and making it oh so much better.”

Twitch blog mentions the event here.
Joey Marchy at Urban Jacksonville mentions it here.

The Talkies’ first guest was Herschell Gordon Lewis “talkied” along to a super great print of his classic film 2000 Maniacs and even sold tickets to his own event from the San Marco Theatre’s box office.

New Years, No Time..

January 9, 2008

The last 5 weekends I’ve been almost exclusively out of town on tour with bands or at fests. That, coupled with my full time job that I DO need to be in Jacksonville to do, has left this site fairly sparse in the way of updates. Here’s some catch up.

Random Update 2.0

* We’ll be changing our hours of operation soon. Starting the week of January 21st we’ll be open only Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Details on the times soon.

* This Sunday, Jan 13th at Doozers Pub (7636 North Main Street Jacksonville, Florida 32208) – these three great bands…

mekagont.jpg

Mekago N.T – Southern Florida’s newest thrashing maniacs. Pummeling fast, raw and heavy. Five tracks of old school heavy grindcore with a twinge of dbeat. These are surprisingly lengthy and brutal songs with heart. Features members from TORCHE and SHITSTORM. Listen

howl.jpg
Howl
(RI) – “Bong ripping, labyrinth metal.” listen

judelive.jpg
Saint Jude (RI) – listen

* Dylan, your favorite Shanty Town Bartender, as well as guitarist for the local band Shitagoddamn, has started scanning the formitable pile of punk show fliers of Jacksonville days past. He’s been uploading them to a flickr account here.

* RADO is pulling together a neighborhood watch group for Riverside.  Read about it here, you know – before you get shot.

Monsters + Art = Friday the 13th…of July

June 15, 2007

On July 13th there will be a house show going on in Riverside! For one night only, anything from Monsters and Goblins to Creatures and Zombies will be covering the walls of 2646 Herschel in Riverside. Featuring over 20 artists from all over North Florida, the Monster Show will feature an OPEN call for entries. Thats right, YOU, can submit something. The only rule being, the work has to be about monsters. What kind of monster? you decide. Drawing, painting, or sculpting? its up to you. if you can dream it we will take it. All entries must be dropped off at Inertia Records by Wednesday July 11th. All skill levels will be represented at the show so dont let your crappy drawing skills keep you from submitting. its a monster. you cant mess it up. the uglier the better. so go grab your crayons, pipecleaners and paper bags and get working. you have less than one month!

all questions can be emailed to Clay:
claydoran(-at-)gmail(-dot-)com (put monster show as subject (spam sucks) )
or buddy up with the artshow’s myspace here
