I Am The Movie: The Movie



Last year we sorted through hours of video footage and photographs from when we first recorded and released our debut album, I Am The Movie. We realized we had such great footage from those days that we thought it would be cool to put together a documentary inspired stylistically by Fugazi’s Instrument.  We asked our friend Melissa Kraemer to lead the project and she did an amazing job editing together the story of I Am The Movie through the songs, from start to end. 

We are releasing this video documentary, now called I Am The Movie: The Movie, on May 13th through our longtime label Epitaph Records.  I Am the Movie: The Movie will be available on limited edition DVD in the original floppy disk packaging that the album was released on, as well as through digital outlets like iTunes and Amazon.

You can watch the I Am The Movie: The Movie trailer here:  http://youtu.be/OQ2mEooDNHE

To celebrate the release of the documentary, we will perform the album I Am The Movie acoustic, for the first time ever, in it’s entirety, start to finish at the 240-cap seated McNally-Smith Auditorium on the campus of McNally-Smith College of Music in St. Paul, MN on Tuesday, May 13th at 7PM.  Tickets are $25.00 and will be on-sale on Friday April 18th at 10 a.m. via www.etix.com or at the Depot Tavern

The lengths I went through to capture these stills from ‘A Life Less Ordinary’ should never be revealed. But hey new desktop backgrounds so yay


Remember in 2010 in Boston when Justin of Motion City Soundtrack lost his voice so a bunch of other artists including Max Bemis, Kenny Vasoli, and Chris Conley filled in on vox for Motion City Karaoke?

Chris Conley singing Hold Me Down, still one of my favorite shows I’ve attended.

All I want for you to be is happy or something…
I guess anything is better than the time you spent hoping I’d get it sorted out.

Happy 32nd Birthday to Claudio!
