“Inside Llewyn Davis” Inspires a Dreamy Folk Concert

llewyndavis2Good music is set to collide with good filmmaking this December in the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, but for a few lucky ducks in New York City, that mash-up of awesomeness will arrive a few months early.

On September 29, some of folk music’s biggest stars will converge on New York’s Town Hall for a harmoniously glorious benefit concert entitled “Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis.”

Feast your souls on the heavenly lineup: Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Marcus Mumford, The Avett Brothers, Patti Smith, Jack White, Joan Baez, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, the Punch Brothers, and more.

Inside Llewyn Davis tells the story of a struggling singer-songwriter making his way through New York’s folk music scene in the 1960’s. It stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Garret Hedlund, John Goodman, and Justin Timberlake.

While normal people who attend normal showings will have to wait till December 6 to enjoy the melodious treat, fancy French filmgoers already gave the movie the Grand Prix Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Basically, it’s going to be good. Very good. Like little-golden-statuette good, if you know what I mean.

Tickets for “Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis” go on sale on Wednesday, August 21. I’ll see you all there in spirit.
