Director Wes Anderson’s films warp the viewer to another slightly altered world. Cliche I know, but it’s true. Whether the plot takes place in stop-motion fox hole, a shoreline of
Electric Jellyfish Viet Cong Man O’ Wars, or in the house of a highly dysfunctional/ slightly incestual family, the audience always seems to get lost in the dark humor universe of quirky characters, timely music selections, and revenge-laden plot lines.
This Saturday night, local collective Subculture, the team that brought FTL this year’s Record Store Day at Radio-Active Records and the uber-packed Back To The Future event at Gateway Theater, will provide Green Room with an extreme makeover unlike any other; each corner of the venue will be dedicated to one of the director’s films: The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom, The Life Aquatic, Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr Fox, and Rushmore (no Bottle Rocket because that movie is boring as cuss). The entire venue will be dressed from head-to-toe with art from some of the brightest local and national artists. Upper Florida-based indie bands Levek and Saskatchewan will be performing on the GR stage, playing both songs from the movies and originals. Conceptual DJ sets by Jolt Radio and Andie Sweetswirl, custom screen printed tees by The Fine Print Shoppe, food by Riverside Market, Indie Craft Bazaar vendors, a photobooth, tons (I mean tons) of giveaways, and many more surprises. Just know that even if you’re not a fanboy of Wes’ movies, you’ll be floored by both the visuals and sounds in Green Room this Saturday.
