Following the screening, a small panel question and answer session will take place with Evan; his co-cameraman, Brian; the show’s promoter, Jeff Blinder; and others who help make Spazz Fest possible. Admission is free. So come on out and get yourself in the mood for Spazz Fest V–it’s just a month away!

Consider These

Qiet – “The Indie Song”
from Pet Driftwood (Composition #8)
out 25 February 2014
Qiet is a ‘vaudeville’ or gypsy rock band out of Charleston, West Virginia. The sextet sounds like a proud village as they heartily belt out “The Indie Song.” It’s hard not to feel good after hearing this tune.

We Were Promised Jetpacks – “Peace Sign
from E Rey (Live in Philadelphia)
out 25 February 2014 on Fat Cat
We’re not usually big on live albums, but if this cut, “Peace Sign” is indicative of the album, we’re in! WWPJ are on a mini-tour of the US before hitting Austin for SXSW, get their live schedule here.

Jessy Bell SmithJohn Mouse
from The Town
out 28 February 2014
The chanteuse from Guelph, ON, delivers a cutesy pop tune on “John Mouse” on a album full of soulful blues and jazz-inspired songs.
