After having the opportunity to screen the film during the Austin Film Festival last year we are happy to announce that the film will have it's official Austin premiere at The Alamo Ritz on April 24th through April 27th and we are ridiculously proud to be sponsors of this event. The film is a perfect snapshot of a very special time in the Austin music scene and we highly recommend catching a screening. The trailer, more info on the film and links to perfect tickets are all below.
Reversal Films is proud to announce the opening of the new music documentary Echotone at the Alamo Ritz on Sunday, April 24th. The film is set in Austin, Texas, and immerses itself in the city’s rapidly evolving music environment and the growing pains that surround it. The film focuses on the city’s plentiful and potent creative class, examining their struggle to hold on and forge ahead in a city on the rise.
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.
