Attn: Music Doc Fans

Just a quick tip for those of you interested in music documentaries, Pitchfork.com is giving a free week-long preview of a documentary called We Fun.  I’m a sucker for music documentaries, and this one prominently features Jared Swilley (above) and his bandmates in the Black Lips.  The doc does a good job of giving a quick and entertaining overview of the Lips and a small group of like-minded bands and the scene they’ve created in Atlanta.  Some like Deerhunter, you’ve probably heard about.  For the most part, though it was an interesting introduction to some characters and some bands that I will have to investigate further.  There’s some good concert footage of the bands playing in various local venues and houses, including a couple good ones of the Lips, known for their live shows.  In fact, the picture I have behind my blog title is a pic I snapped of Cole from Black Lips climbing onto the ceiling at Black Cat in DC and hanging there, guitar in hand, above the hands of their fans.

Just a warning, there are definitely some NSFW material, so probably not a worktime distraction.  But check it out soon before it’s gone.  Though it will be available for purchase.
