NICE GUYS DON'T WORK IN HOLLYWOOD

posted May 30th, 2013

1940s avant-garde filmmaker and subsequent Hollywood outside-insider Curtis Harrington directed everything from cult-adored horror films like Night Tide, Games and What's the Matter with Helen? as well as beloved 70s-80s TV dross, Charlie's Angels and Dynasty. With a career arc beginning in 1940s, his deeply intuitive and evocative approach to filmmaking were heralded by luminaries of the era like Maya Deren and Kenneth Anger (whose Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome featured Curtis in a starring role). In the 1950s, Curtis worked as... (read more)

The Lost Chapters of THE DRAG CITY NEWSLETTER MAY 2013!!!!!

posted May 29th, 2013

The following items were found to be missing shortly after the Drag City May Newsletter went live on Friday night. These two sections were a part of a larger vision of America that the Newsletter was meant to convey. If you read it and didn't feel one way or another about America, it's probably because these two chapter were missing. Don't blame the chapters for not making the final cut. It's not their fault that they were cut-and-not-pasted in the desperate final moments of editorial... (read more)

TAKE IN SOME OPEN AIR WITH BLUES CONTROL

posted May 28th, 2013

Blues Control released Valley Tangents nearly a year gone by, during the summer of our end-of-times, 2012. Luckily for all, the end-of-times proved to be a new age of enlightenment more than anything, with Blues Control at the forefront, extending the meadows of their Valley Tangents with no signs of straying into slate, porous rock, ocean or mountain. Valley Tangents provide lush and lively excursions for all who graze on its grasses, and recent torrential downpours yield a fresh new organism on which to feast... (read more)

SHE'S ON TOP: SIC ALPS VISUALIZED

posted May 24th, 2013

With the fresh-released "She's On Top" EP object close in the proverbial rear-view mirror as it is in real live, Sic Alps gallantly drop the first of three videos (Final Cut-style - ah, Pink Floyd - where's the ground you didn't cover first?!?) from their three-song 12"EP! Directed by William Francis-Bashore Keihn, "She's On Top" rollicks San Franciscan-style just as you'd hope - like a mysteriously-flavored treat! What's in this thing? How's that wonky homonoid doing that creepy-crawl? Where's the owner of... (read more)

HEAR THE SOURCE FAMILY TODAY, SEE THE SOURCE FAMILY TOMMOROW

posted May 17th, 2013

The Source Family documentary is this season's art-house go-to cinematic experience - everybody's talkin', but we can't hear a word they're saying! That's cause Drag City Films, while proud of the promotion and distribution of it's latest film, is the younger child, the baby, if you will, in the Drag City family - and since the elder child is about the records, we're hustling hard this week to get copies of The Source Family Original Soundtrack into the hands and eventually ears of a fascinated...

SCOUT NIBLETT DRAWS GUN

posted May 13th, 2013

Hey batter, hey batter! It's Up To Emma is in the lineup of New Drag City releases today - and in fact, Scout's on deck and approaching the plate! This is the Scout Niblett you know and love and have all waited for - new, nude and rude (a state of mind, people - clothes are mostly ON, as are the new, nude and rude perfomances) plus intimate and familiar, to boot. Like a dress or a gown that's trans-formative yet lives in the... (read more)
