As part of this year’s San Francisco International Film Festival, Merill Garbus and the rest of tUnE-yArDs will be providing live soundtracks to a handful of short films starring Buster Keaton. Oakland-based guitarist Ava Mendoza, who was recently named one of Guitar World‘s “10 Female Guitarists You Should Know”, will also be joining the tUnE-yArDs crew.
If somehow the films are still the main attraction for you, here’s the list of shorts: One Week (1920), Good Night, Nurse! (1918), The Haunted House (1921), and The Cook (1918). It all goes down April 23 at the Castro Theater. Find more info and buy tickets here.
Here’s the video to the tUnE-yArDs track “Bizness” to get you in the mood:
