Pencil This In: Scott Walker on Film, LAist Shutterbugs @ Where
The NuArt begins a one-week engagement of Stephen Kijak’s film Scott Walker: 30 Century Man. It’s a portrait of the enigmatic musician who’s been described as the best-kept secret in modern music. David Bowie is an executive producer of the biopic, and he along with Radiohead, Brian Eno, Damon Albarn, Alison Goldfrapp, Johnny Marr and others are interviewed about Scott Walker and his music. There’s an opening night cocktail party tonight, too, at Liquid Kitty. They’ll have $2 drink specials with your ticket stub.
Two of LAist’s music photogs -- Koga and Benjamin Hoste (along with Simon Cardoza) -- are exhibiting their work in “Exposure: A Photography Show” in Silverlake tonight and the following three Fridays at Where Gallery. Come early (7:30-9 pm) to mingle and meet the photographers, and stay late (until midnight) to hear some of the best bands (unplugged) and DJs on the Silverlake scene. Bands on tap tonight: Le Switch, Manhattan Murder Mystery and a special guest. There’s a $5 cover after 8:45 pm.
Today marks the start of a 10-day SoCal celebration of the work of Japanese filmmaker and artist Takahiko Iimura. Tonight at 7:30 pm, Iimura will make an appearance at the UCLA Film & Television Archive at the Billy Wilder Theater (Hammer Museum) along with a screening of his seven “Film Poems” from the 1960s-70s.
