Heavy Metal Jr by Chris Waitt is a short film about an enthusiastic young heavy metal group from Stirling called Hatred. Stick around afterwards and talk some film and other stuff with us in the bar. As ever, we recommend reserving tickets for the screening (0141 332 6535).

MOGWAI on the big screen
Mogwai feature alongside Belle And Sebastian, Sonic Youth, Portishead, Daniel Johnston, Animal Collective, Boredoms, Slint, The Dirty Three, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, GZA, Iggy and the Stooges, Shellac, Patti Smith and many others in the new feature documentary ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES from Warp Films.
ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES is a kaleidoscopic journey into the parallel musical universe of the cult music festival of the same name. The film is a semi-found multi media bricolage shot by over two hundred filmmakers, fans and musicians over the festival’s history, with key contributions from co-director Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) and cinematographer Vincent Moon (The Take Away Shows, Arcade Fire).
The film premiered at SXSW and is being screened worldwide throughout the year. A DVD release is set for September. The UK premiere presented by Future Cinema happens on 24th June at the Edinburgh Picturehouse. It is a unique live cinema event which will see the venue transformed into a 1950s Holiday Camp, with the film being brought to life through a fusion of music and performance; with DJ's including Belle and Sebastian's Chris Geddes, midnight bingo, and live music culminating in a very SPECIAL HEADLINE SET from a top-secret Scottish act.
"Stunning...A truly immersive experience, All Tomorrow's Parties runs the gamut from raucous energy to magisterial grace...This remarkable film encapsulates and sculpts the ecstatic abandon of shared musical experience into a thing of opulent brilliance. All Tomorrow's Parties is a film to fall in love with." - SXSW Festival
"A cascade of sound and fury...the range of what this movie covers exhausts me...The highest compliment I can pay the film is that it made me want to attend the festival for real...not just your average concert film, [it's] in a class by itself...One of the singular film experiences i've had so far this year." - Hit Fix
I've started a twitter account (twitter.com/plasmatron)and wil be posting the setlists as well as loads of other pointless drivel if anyone wants to have a look. John has also started one (twitter.com/mogwaieat) which will be mainly for the band to review restaurants.Cheers. Stuart
