Thrill Jockey wanted to celebrate the significance of the contributions of Poster Artists to our advocacy of our artists. To celebrate their contribution we have comissioned an exclusive set of limited-edition Silk Screened posters. These Posters will not be sold any place else. Participating printers are at this time Dexterity Press, Crosshair, Sonnenzimmer, Birdmachine and Ryan Duggan. The Artists were given no directives at all, just told to create any poster they would like. It does not have to mention Thrill Jockey or our 20th birthday, although several do. Thrill Jockey will not be keeping any of the proceeds generated by these posters - 100% goes back to the artists.
Help us film the Anniversary shows!
- Thrill Jockey is asking for concertgoers to take video at our upcoming Anniversary shows, and submit them to us to include in our documentation of the series.
Filmmaker Gabe DeLoach, director of the upcoming Double Dagger documentary If We Shout Loud Enough, will be creating live videos from the Thrill Jockey 20th Anniversary shows in Baltimore and New York. But he can't do it alone.
Take some video of your favorite band playing at Ram's Head, Death by Audio or Webster Hall this week. Take some video of that weirdo dancing next to you, or of Gerrit and Van playing dice in the alley. Take some video on the train on your way to the show, on your drive home, or of Dave Heumann eating a sandwich next-door.
Use your phone, use your Flip, use your digital camera from 2001. Sent it all to email@example.com (directly or using your favorite file transfer service) by September 30 and Gabe will include it the footage he is collecting of the shows. Not all submissions will be used in the final videos.
The final videos will be posted online, archived at Thrilljockey.com and sent to that "blog" the kids are reading. Thanks for your help with this, and we're excited to see you all at the shows!
White Hills to appear in the new Jim Jarmusch film Only Lovers Left Alive
Written and directed by Jim Jarmusch, Only Lovers Left Alive stars Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Anton Yelchin.
Against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers, an underground musician (Tom Hiddleston), deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover (Tilda Swinton). Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon interrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister (Mia Wasikowska). Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
White Hills play themselves in a live concert scene set in a Detroit Rock Club. The band spent a week in Hamburg, Germany shooting the scene, which includes Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin, this past July. The song featured in the film is Under Skin Or By Name from the album Glitter Glamour Atrocity.
The band first worked with Jarmusch at the ATP festival in Monticello, NY September 2010 when he asked them to perform at the festival he was curating alongside The Stooges, Boris, Sonic Youth and Sunn O))).
Only Lovers Left Alive is slated to premiere in 2013. White Hills will be touring the U.S. throughout September, including two stops at the Hopscotch Festival and a headlining slot at the Thrill Jockey 20th Anniversary show in Brooklyn before touring Europe throughout late September and October.
