ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES FILM TO PREMIERE AT SXSW

Tuesday 3rd March, 2009

Warp x are pleased to announce the completion of All Tomorrow’s Parties, a kaleidoscopic journey into the parallel musical universe of the cult music festival of the same name.
 
All Tomorrow’s Parties is a DIY concert film featuring performances from a eclectic mix of some of the most influential or groundbreaking artists including Battles, Sonic Youth, Belle And Sebastian, Grizzly Bear, Portishead, Daniel Johnston, Grinderman, Mogwai, Slint, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Gossip, Iggy and the Stooges and The Boredoms.
 
The film is a semi-found bricolage made from Super8, camcorder and mobile phone footage much of it contributed by over two hundred filmmakers, fans and musicians over the festival’s recent history, with key contributions from Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) and Vincent Moon (The Take Away Shows, Arcade Fire).
 
All Tomorrow’s Parties is a fiercely independent festival that many music lovers regard as one of the most important music events in the world.  In an intimate and communal atmosphere, free of corporate sponsorship, it serves up a heady combination of alternative music, crazy golf and chalet-living, with musicians and fans living side by side.  At each festival a band or artist is chosen to gather up their favourite artists who perform over a weekend in an out-of-season holiday camp by the sea.  Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore described the festival as the ‘ultimate mix tape’.
 
All Tomorrow’s Parties will have it’s World Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, screening on 14th, 19th and 21st March.

To celebrate, we will be having a party on Tuesday March 17th, Emo’s Main Stage starring:
