Music/Film: Part of the Weekend Never Dies (The Review)

It's been probably way too long since we last wrote on the blog and frankly it was a necessary break. I'm not gonna bore you with sentimentalism/spirituality/reality checks (although just checks would be nice $$$) or anything remotely personal and introspective (cause I'm the worst at it). But after all, Manifest Destitute is a world for those who dream and those who Dance...and those who live each weekend like it was their last.

If you haven't seen Soulwax's "Part of the Weekend never dies" then you probably don't love Music all that much. If you haven't the faintest idea of What Soulwax or what 2 Many DJ's do/are, this nice little package will without a doubt indoctrinate you into the Gospel that is Nite Versions while making you believe Jesus is actually two brothers from Belgium whose goal is to save the world from bad music. Yeah ok...we really liked the documentary but trust me, we are pretty sure you will too.

"Director Saam Farahmand filmed Soulwax on their recent international dates, capturing all the excitement, chaos and humour of the world tour. Where the Beastie Boys filmed one gig with 50 cameras, Soulwax filmed 120 shows with one camera, in Europe, Japan, US, Latin America and Australia. The result is a snapshot of life on the road with one of the most exciting live bands in the world, and features their friends including 2manydj's, James Murphy & Nancy Whang (LCD Soundsystem), Erol Alkan, Tiga, Justice, Busy P, So-Me, Peaches, Klaxons and many more in interview, as well as behind-the-scenes footage, and LOTS of music".... go watch it (seriously, now!!!)
