OVB EVENTS: PHOTO REVIEW OF OIFF’s Presentation of “THE OTTAWA ROCK LOTTERY” Documentary
As promised, here is our photo review of last nights happenings @ The Mercury Lounge. The tag line of the infamous Rock Lottery is, ” Why have a scene when you can have a community?”, and last nights gathering was proof in the pudding! The evening consisted of The Indefinite Project’s highly entertaining documentary; a half serious self parody on band ethos. The night also offered up a variety of music videos produced by Ottawa musicians and their collaborating filmmakers.
One of the many works screened was Kalle Mattson’s video gone viral entitled “Thick As Thieves”, an animated travelogue across space and time ending in mankind’s destruction at the hands of a cardboard Robot. The video was featured on Vimeo’s Staff Picks and the views havn’t stopped since!
The audience was also treated to a special performance by Atomic Wednesday, a combination of Uke and poetry, Brad Morden the former and Ian Keteku the latter. Check out a recent video the pair made while on tour in Europe. It goes by the name, THE PATH.
Amos The Transparent skeleton-ed the evening with an amazing set and word of their recent video release. The band was in full form and our photos don’t lie!
Thanks to Samantha Everts, Nina Bains and the entire OIFF crew for hosting and concieving of such an amazing project and event! The OIFF Spotlight Series is shaping up very nicely and OVB is excited to hear news of the next event!
