Yesterday afternoon, I spontaneously decided to pop this bad boy in to the DVD player. (Note the $2.99 price tag. Thanks, Amoeba!)
Beastie Boys: Awesome I shot that! is a very creative concert film in which the director handed out something like 50 cameras and asked people to film whatever they felt like filming (One guy filmed himself peeing...). After the show, all of the footage was masterfully edited together.
It came out a few years ago, and I wasn't dying to see it. Mostly because I had read a bad review of it.
Turns out, it's great! Not only was it extremely creative, it was also very immersive. I really felt like I was experiencing a Beastie Boys show. The Doug E Fresh appearance alone, about half way through, is worth its weight in gold!
Speaking of concerts, that night I saw the Pixies in real life. Yay!
They put on a great show. This tour is a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Doolittle, so they played the entire album in the album's original sequence. They also played quite a few rarities and a handful of hits.
I love Frank Black (the singer) so much...
kingfuraday was there, too. In the picture above, he's super tall and in yellow. We talked after the show, and I got to meet his cute friend Dan. :)
No more concerts for me for a while! (Psst...this Friday, Matt and Kim at House of Blues)
