Trunk Show by Jonathan Demme to Premiere at SxSW


The South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference and Festival announced that Jonathan Demme will premiere his new Neil Young performance film, Neil Young Trunk Show, on Saturday, March 21, at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas.

Neil Young Trunk Show was filmed over two nights at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia, PA in December 2007 which we had the privilege of attending.

(Thanks Chad!)

Great that you were there! It seems it's gonna be a very good movie from that wonderful tour! No Hidden Path! Can't wait for the Blu-Ray. In my opinnion Jonathan Demme can shoot a movie on every NY tour. Well, maybe sub-tour... Because it's looking more and more like he's on a neverending tour.

On the ‘Fork In The Road‘ album:
The forthcoming album will be preceded by the single ‘Johnny Magic‘ due out March 23.

Is this news? I didn't know Johnny Magic would be the new single. At least it was the most wonderful eperience to see Neil record the video for Johnny Magic. So funny that he recorded it while Johnny was watching a monitor at his garage.

I'm so excited to see this video someday...when it's released on DVD/Blu-Ray, hopefully.

Also, I'm very happy that this was filmed when Ralph Molina was with the band. I mean Chad Cromwell is a great drummer and all, but without a doubt, Ralph just fits with Neil and his music better. :)

Sorry Anonymous, sometimes I really find it hard to stay in "serious mode".
Look, alls I know is there's a lot of songs with Piano in them with Neil ticklin' the "ivorys' played from the boot of the lincoln ..Hence Trunk show.
