Elephant 6, the collective made up of Neutral Milk Hotel, Of Montreal, Apples in Stereo and many other indie rock favorites, have been working on this feature film Major Organ and the Adding Machine for a while, and on Sunday, they’re screening it at the Roxie. AND playing some songs. Their show at the Independent the night before is sold out, so if you don’t have tickets to that, you might want to hurry up and buy tickets to this.
OR, you could try to win tickets by entering our contest. Leave a comment below relating a personal anecdote about any Elephant 6 project or any instance of a group of musicians making a foray into the realm of cinema, and we’ll pick two winners based on merit. Each winner will get a pair of passes. Contest ends at 8pm on Thursday.
You know how you’ve been meaning to go to Dollar Day at Golden Gate Fields for like a hundred years and you’ve still never been? You should go finally, seriously. I did recently, and it was a lovely day.
The photo ops are plentiful:
The ponies are majestic:
You guys need to start reading Summer Is Rad if you aren’t already. Its author (a longtime Missionite so far as I know) calls it a “picture blog,” and that’s what it is. It’s a bunch of pictures, not necessarily related to one another, often not credited. But what a collection! The curation here is superb. Good stuff (like the above for instance omg) all through the day, day in and day out.
I know there are a lot of blogs like this out there, but this one is just a little special for some reason.
