    Default Stephin Merritt show - Cinefamily - July 11th

    Some of you may have heard about Stephin Merritt composing and performing a live score to the 1916 silent film of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. I believe he played it at the Castro in SF, and has an upcoming performance at the Seattle International Film Fest. Well, he's going to do it in LA too, on July 11th at the Cinefamily a.k.a. Silent Movie Theatre on Fairfax. This is the same place where Bryan, TallChris and I saw the Lee Renaldo/Stan Brakhage program a few months back.

    MORE INFORMATION.

    So Stephin Merritt played at Cinefamily at 3am Today and he short songs before each short films.

    I don't remember all the names of each short but a few I can remember are ;
    Dancing Pig(1907) I felt like this was his best song of the night.I just can't remember the lyrics right but it was really great.


    and

    Time Piece which he sang a song called if it's a toupee.

    The owner introduce Stephin Merritt with a story that when he asked him to do something for the fundraiser, Stephin asked what is the hardest time to fill for this 24 hour fundraiser and the owner replied 3am.With that Stephin replied "that's the time I'll do."
