One of the highlights of 2009 for me was the All Points West Festival in Jersey City, and one of the highlights of that festival was the amazing set there by Gogol Bordello. Imagine my surprise when I learned that the entire set was filmed and is being released this Friday to theatres in 3D!
It's part of “LARGER THAN LIFE…IN 3D", a concert film triple header also featuring sets by the Dave Matthews Band at Austin City Limits and Ben Harper at the Mile High Festival in Denver. According to the film's press:
"Shot in Digital 3D--which renders a cinema quality comparable to that found in this fall’s other big 3D releases (A Christmas Carol and Avatar)--the format essentially brings viewers onstage, giving them a stunning 360◦ view of each live performance."
The film will be in theatres for one week only (Dec 11-17), and is playing country wide. More info on places and tickets can be found at: http://www.inconcert3d.com/
And 2 lucky extrawack! readers will get to go there (with a date) on us! The 15th and 20th emails to email@example.com with "DMB 3D" in the subject line will be sent a pass for 2 to see the movie at any theater any night during the movie's run! Offer valid for US addresses only (sorry Papua New Guinea!).
In the meantime, here's a taste:
