New Bonnie 'Prince' Billy Film From FolkYeah's Britt Govea

Posted By on Fri, May 14, 2010 at 7:28 AM


Now this is a match made in heaven (aka Big Sur). Bonnie 'Prince' Billy helped indie music promoter Britt Govea, the guy behind (((FolkYeah))), start doing those amazing shows along the coast by agreeing to be one of his first bookings. Govea started setting up shows for Billy in Big Sur and has since moved into putting on events in the Santa Cruz Mountains as well as in San Francisco and Oakland. (He's hosted performances by Chris Robinson, Animal Collective, and Pegi Young, to name just a few). Now Govea can add filmmaker to his credits, thanks in part to Billy. Together with Brian Ziffer, he directed a short movie starring Billy called Hombre Senscillo. The poster for the film is the bad-ass image above.

You can watch Hombre Senscillo starting Monday over at Pitchfork, or go to a very special screening July 1 down in Big Sur at the Henry Miller Library, one of my favorite spaces in all of Northern California.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
