Banksy Documentary - Exit Through the Gift Shop (watch the first 5 minutes!)

Much earlier this year, we geeked out over the trailer for the upcoming Banksy documentary, Exit Through the Gift Shop. Now, with a full 5 minutes of the beginning of this months release, we have every right and rad reason to keep on grinning.




While the project was being touted as a feature film by street artist Banksy, the film actually has no credited director. The film starts out as a documentary by a video camera-obsessed Frenchman named Thierry Guetta. With a love for street art, and connections into the scene, Thierry sets out to capture the most elusive street artist...Banksy.


Naturally, the film becomes something much different, and far more elaborate. Screenings in NYC begin on April 16 at the Sunshine Theater and Lincoln Plaza.


Watch the first 5 minutes below.

Win a Runaways Movie Prize Pack!

Ok, ok...we'll admit that we're slightly more than super amped to see the new biopic surrounding the rise of The Runaways, the iconic 70's gal rockers, led by the inimitables Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. We've strayed from reading any pre-opening reviews, cause frankly, we don't care what anyone has to say...we'll judge for ourselves. How punk rock of us!


The Runaways follows Jett and Currie as they rise from rebellious L.A. street kids to rock stars of the now legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. They fall under the guiding hand of rock impresario Kim Fowley, who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits. Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning lead the cast of talents in the flick.


The movie opens with a limited release next Friday, March 19, and nationwide on April 9; however, if you simply can't wait for all the riotous radness to explode, either watch the trailer here, OR enter for a chance to win a severely massive prize pack. We're giving away one of these beastly bundles and we're also a little bummed we can't win this.

Beastly Bits #40

We're still riding a high thanks to the pleasantly warm weather here in NYC. Rad shows are coming to town more frequently and SXSW is but a week away, for all you Austin-bound beasts. Yep Spring is definitely in the air.


We're stoked, I'm sure you're psyched...hell, let's get some goodies real quick so we can get on to the rest of today's radness. 


RIP Corey Him.

Metric - Black Sheep (New Song on Scott Pilgrim vs The World OST)

After last year's teribbly brilliant release, Fantasies, Metric have offered to lend a hand to the upcoming film, Scott Pilgrim vs The World...in the form of a track on the soundtrack, as well as grabbing the reins behind one of the fictional bands in the film. It's all a little more than confusing, so I'll do my best to explain below.



Edgar Wright's upcoming adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's comic series, Scott Pilgrim, is due out on August 13. The music-centric underdog superhero tale is helmed by Michael Cera, with a handful of additional indie-loving actors in tow. (ex: Jason Schwarztman, Anna Kendrick and Kieran Culkin). The plot centers around Pilgrim and the girl of his dreams, whom he can only be with by defeating evil ex-boyfriends. On top of that, each character has their own band. Whew!

Which bring us to Metric. Their song, Black Sheep, is basically performed in character during the movie. See, the Canadian outfit will be handling all the music for Scott Pilgrim's fictional band The Clash at Demonhead, while their semi-sister band Broken Social Scene will be "playing" Crash and the Boys. The music for Scott Pilgrim's own band Sex Bob-omb will be provided by folk-honey, Beck.

Fans of Metric may recognize the previously-unreleased track, as the band has performed it during their live sets a handful of times over the past few years. Video here.

Grace Potter & the Nocturnals - White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane Cover)

A lot has been made of the utterly disastrous soundtrack for the upcoming Burton-feature film, Alice in Wonderland. One cut you simply cannot lump with the rest, however, is the sensational cover of White Rabbit (fitting), that the Vermont-bred Grace Potter and the Nocturnals offer up on the disc.


At their Burlington Waterfront Show in 2009, GPatN performed a live rendition of the song. Their cover really starts to get gritty around the 1:47 mark, and again at the 2:02 spot when a gnarly guitar riff makes a tidy home behind Potter's huskily-lovely vocals. The recorded version of the song is featured on the aforementioned soundtrack.


Watch the clip now.
