About Todd P Goes to Austin:TODD P GOES TO AUSTIN is a cultural snap-shot of America’s underground,  do it yourself music scene featuring unforgettable live performances from Matt and Kim, Dan Deacon, Mika Miko, The Death Set and many more.

With the help of legendary DIY rock promoter Todd P, Brooklyn has become ground zero for these exciting young musicians. Using footage that includes material shot by the bands themselves, TODD P GOES TO AUSTIN exposes what life is like keeping your head above water while touring at the underground level.

Part art gallery and part musical culture brand, Ghostly minest he international landscape for talent with a look towards the future and without the restriction of established genres or classification.  The label’s confidence was emboldened by an an initial roster of forward-thinking acts like instrumental hip-hop prodigy Dabrye, electronic beatsmith Matthew Dear, electronic/indie rock pioneers Midewest Product and a musical firebrand Dykehouse, approximating a minimal-yet-rich ronic template that married cold funk to mutant pop music, culminating in a palettable and perplexing array of sonics.  Launched by a then 19-year old, Sam Valenti IV, the label was inspired by spending his formative years as a DJ and a love of visiting record stores and attending gigs. Their video features one of their newly signed artists, DJ/Producer Michna.

CALL FOR ENTRIES: short films about music

(RANT BEGINS)

Bodega have been invited back to 303Grand, this time for The PerkStreet Lounge!

PerkStreet is a financial services company that offers an online checking account as well as provides perks to it’s members in the form of cash, music downloads and coffee.  As part of their launch promotions, PerkStreet is creating a pop up lounge at 303Grand’s space, featuring a program of events to include discussion panels, screenings, DIY, music and food.

On November 15th we are looking to screen short films or videos that relate to music, one of PerkStreet’s, well, perks! Take a look at the full program schedule but in a nutshell here goes : PSFK will be hosting a Good Ideas Salon, Burdastyle will be running a DIY crafting session, Brooklyn Based will be giving a chocolate-making demonstration and Shoestring will be waxing lyrical on how to stay frugal….

The sweet, lowdown: Your films should be no more than 3-12 minutes, you must be from Brooklyn (in New York terms, you must live in a BK hood!) and have directed/produced/conceptualized the film or music video by you or your production crew.

This will be a special VIP event for selected press, industry and creative types only.  We’ll be shouting about you all over town from Facebook to Twitter, sending out dedicated email blasts and bragging to press. Basically we’ll have your back and make sure some incredible eyes get to view your work. You’ll also get to spend the afternoon with us - eating, drinking and laughing will be absolutely necessary.

Deadline:  Wednesday, November 5th

For information on how to submit your entry, please email us at: meetbodega@gmail.com

November 5th-22nd
303Grand Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
