Happy fall, friends and enemies! It’s been an eventful summer in Boogieland in all my various film, music, and (less lucrative) handsome-boy enterprises. Here’s the rundown of what I’ve been up to as a meager explanation as to why I’m bad at updating websites:
- THE MAYOR OF ROCK & ROLL had a successful Boston premiere at the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival in August at the Brattle Theater. In all sincerity, I was completely overwhelmed by the love and support the audience and festival people showed for the film. Truly one of the great days of my creative life, so I am eternally grateful. If you haven’t seen it and (more importantly) want to, follow the movie’s official web page and Twitter @MayorRockNRoll for any announcements about future screenings. Hopefully, we have a few more in the cooker.
- In other movie news, I’ve been busy stretching my acting chops in MAYOR director Mark Phinney’s upcoming film IT’S NOT FUNNY ANYMORE (provided I’m not cutting room floor fodder). Spoiler alert: I have a beard in that one. I have also been busy writing, directing, and producing a series of shorts that are in various levels of production and post-production, teaming up a lot with the talented mofos at Infinite Canvas Films. The best place to stay updated on where you can see those is on Twitter @brendanboogie. I’ll also be updating this space, likely months after the fact. As is my wont.
- Music! I’m still a musician, I think! We are scheduled to mix the new Broken Gates record this month at Watch City Studios. I know it’s been a while since we’ve played out live with any regularity, but I’m proud of these tunes and look forward to getting them out to you. Also, I have been honored to be playing bass with the Nate Leavitt Band. We are playing the Bowery Electric tomorrow night in NYC so stop by and check out one of the finest songwriters working today.
- Sandwiches! Had a cheesesteak in Philly. It was fucking good.
So that’s it for me. How have you guys been? Still nursing that groin pull? Well, I told you – you’re too old to play jai alai at such a competitive level. I know the Miami cartel bosses put a lot of money on your games, but sometimes you’ve got to know when it’s time to gracefully bow out and join the witness protection program, you know? Seriously, you’ve become such a cliche. Get out of my sight! You disgust me!
