Special Screening of "The Life of the World to Come"

In celebration of the October 6th release of the new Mountain Goats album, "The Life of the World to Come," 4AD, Housing Works and Other Music will be presenting a free screening of Rian Johnson's film of the same name at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, this Sunday, October 4th. In this film, John Darnielle (the Mountain Goats) performs The Life of the World to Come on piano and guitar. Shot in the same building where, as an eight-year-old piano student and new transplant to Claremont he performed Bach minuets for the state examiner, the movie takes the songs from the album and restores them to their raw original states: skin, blood, and bone. This special screening will be followed by a discussion/Q&A portion with director Rian Johnson and John Darnielle, and a cocktail hour.
HOUSING WORKS: 126 Crosby Street, NYC
Doors at 5:45PM / Free Admission / Limited Capacity
