Melbourne Says Let There Be Rock at Gallery of Modern Art Cinematheque, Until June 5th

OK, I'm catching an event in progress.

Over 5 weeks (April 29- June 5) Let There Be Rock at Gallery of Modern Art's Australian Cinemateque in Melbourne offers an impressive line-up of rock movies from documentaries and live shows, musicals to dramas.

"From Elvis Presley in Jailhouse Rock 1957 and The Beatles in A Hard Day’s Night 1964 to Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White in It Might Get Loud 2009 and Animal Collective’s visual album ODDSAC 2009, ‘Let There Be Rock’ surveys over 50 years of music on the big screen."

Amongst the movies still to come are Wattstax (1973)  and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Murder Ballads (2008) on May 21.


On same day Six Ft Hick: Notes from the Underground (2010) screening featuring Brisbane band Six Ft Hick will be followed by discussion with band.

I will check if Netflix has 9 Songs (2004) from Michael Winterbottom: "An American exchange student and a Londoner fall in and out of love and lust while attending a series of concerts which includes performances by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Primal Scream, The Von Bondies and Franz Ferdinand" which will show on May 27.

As you can see everything from Raw Power to 70's Soul...

Musical Pastry, Patisserie Musicale, Natalie Spins Sweet Treats, Sixties Style

May 16
Taking a side trip from her culinary endeavors on Saveur Passion, French food blogger Natalie Merceron spins sweet treats, Sixties style, creating a new genre, Musical Pastry (Patisserie Musicale), all by herself. Did she get some of her inspiration fron the cover of Let it Bleed (1969)? I wonder how many examples of cross-pollination between music and pastries are out there. One for the vynil junkies.
