Concert and Performance Dates

This one's been a long time coming...!

Back in 2004, The ECC performed in the Avant Garage festival around Halloween.  The festival features musicians performing live soundtracks to silent movies, and The ECC had previously appeared in a few.  To up the ante, we tried out a fun idea: A live soundtrack DJ'd with soundtracks from other movies.

It was a hit.  Bigtime.  The idea worked beautifully, the audience loved it, and it was one of the most talked about ECC shows of that time.  (Take a look for yourself!)

And it was never performed again.

For years we've wanted to do it again.  It wasn't long after that show that The ECC relocated to San Francisco, and we figured a chance would come.  But the silent movie for that show was the silent horror classic Nosferatu, which is a tough booking when it's not Halloween.  So year after year passed without a chance to restage the success of our Reels Of Steel show on the west coast... or anywhere.


Finally, it's happening: Reels Of Steel will be performed next Saturday April 3rd at Other Cinema, the weekly experimental cinema night of mashup movie madman Craig Baldwin.  The night's theme is Remix Masters and also features Kembrew McLeod's excellent new documentary Copyright Criminals and shorts by Negativland and others.

Don't miss this show!  It's been six years since the last... who knows when the next chance will come!
