At Last: Antony and the Johnsons

I love the simplicity of this:


Finally, finally, after about 3 years of waiting, Antony and the Johnsons will be releasingantony hegarty an EP on Oct 7 entitled Another World. To celebrate the release, Antony is playing two US concerts, one in LA and one in Harlem, with full orchestration co-arranged by the brilliant Nico Muhly. Those dates are here. There will also be two dates in the UK. Antony's next full length, The Crying Light, will apparently be released on January 21, 2009.

If you somehow missed I Am A Bird Now, which won the Mercury Prize for Best Album of 2005, do yourself a favor and grab a copy. Or if you aren't in the mournful mood, you can check out Antony's flawless vocal contributions to Hercules and Love Affair's self titled album. This should get you up and dancing:

The Grindhouse Film Festival returns to LA's New Beverly Cinema TONIGHT (Tuesday) with two more mindblowing films from the glory days of the grindhouses and drive-ins. For this special event we'll have an incredible Linda Blair double-feature from the 80's with rare 35mm prints of SAVAGE STREETS (1984) and CHAINED HEAT (1983). We expect to have a couple of special guests in attendance, and we'll also be celebrating the recent release of SAVAGE STREETS as a 2-disc special edition DVD by BCI Eclipse.


The event starts at 7:30pm, and admission for the two features plus a reel of rare exploitation trailers and our world-famous free raffle is still only $8.

RADIO'S BEGINNINGS 

Radio Drama (also frequently referred to as Old Time Radio or OTR) really began in the 1920s. Before that, there was audio theater which consisted of plays performed for radio broadcast.

The result was a worldwide explosion in what was an instantly popular new art form. Within months there were radio dramas being produced across the USA, as well as in Canada, Ceylon, France, Germany, India, Japanand the UK.
