Do the kids still like Fugazi?
Dear Fran and Will--
How’s it going? How’s the pilot coming?
I know I had mentioned to you this awesome “Dark Toons” show we’ve got coming up on Sept. 9, and here are the details, below and attached as a .pdf. It’s guaranteed to be one of the biggest film and music events in New York this year: we’ll be screening enjoyably evil animations, with a live score to the films of Brent Green by members of FUGAZI and CALIFONE. Plus an after-party with Free Dewar’s Scotch Whisky. Not to be missed!
You can also get more info at http://rooftopfilms.com/show_06-shortsdarktoons.html
We would really appreciate it if you could help spread the word about it. Maybe Fran’s animation students could come? (We even do group discounts, if you want to make a class trip out of it — they won’t need to rent a bus, like with Ottawa.)
So, if you can, please pass it on to friends, animation fans, Fugazi fans, and other cool people. Thanks.
