'Alien' to Get Live Music Treatment for Film Independent at LACMA
Following December's showing of Welcome to the Dollhouse, the screening-meets-live-music series Film Independent at LACMA: Bring the Noise will present Alien in partnership with dance-pop band Yacht.
The organization has just debuted the cover art — designed by Matt Owen — for the special event screening of Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi classic, scheduled for March 9 at LACMA's Bing Theater.
In the vein of Film Independent at LACMA's "Live Read" from filmmaker Jason Reitman, Bring the Noise has an acclaimed musician or band select a film of their choosing, remove the score and put together a new accompaniment for the film. Hunx and His Punx stalwart Seth Bogart handled music for Dollhouse.
Yacht hails from Portland, Oregon, with bandmembers Jona Bechtolt, Claire L. Evans and Rob Kieswetter currently based in L.A.
