have you ever seen the movie dig! about the dandy warhols and the brian jonestown massacre? well you should.
i was not really a fan of the local portland band, the dandy warhols, but after seeing the film, i have a new appreciation for them as they seemed to carve out a niche for their sound and worked very hard.
the film follows their relationship with the band the brian jonestown massacre and their "friendly" competition with this band. i checked out the music of brian jonestown after seeing the film and i really liked it. i'm not so sure of their new stuff (there is a constant rotation of bandmates). lorenzo really wanted to go see them, just to check them out, i on the other hand, think i will pass since it's a work night and wait for his report back.
whether you like either band or not, i highly recommend the film dig! for it's character study of the respective musicians.
the brian jonestown massacre is playing tomorrow night at the crystal ballroom.
