Echotone Austin Premiere | April 24th - April 27th at Alamo Drafthouse Downtown
The film follows Austin musicians like Black Joe Lewis, Cari Palazolo and Bill Baird along their daily routines and features performances by Ghostland Observatory, The Octopus Project, the Black Angels and more. Along with live musical footage and visceral aerial views of the city in development, Echotone also includes passionate debates with artists and city music leaders on issues like urban planning, sustainability, artistic integrity and rabid independence.
One of the central themes of Echotone, how musicians and creatives try to find their place in a developing city, is an issue that extends well beyond Texas and should be familiar to anyone actively involved in music scenes on the rise around the country.
Echotone will be available nationwide on September 6, 2011.
