Make Time Next Week to Meet the Brooklyn Brothers

It may or may not surprise you to learn we Seattle Weekly writers occasionally take other gigs. I recently had the pleasure of cheating on the Weekly with SIFF, previewing flicks for their festival guide.

By far, my favorite of the films I screened was the Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best -playing June 1 at the Harvard Exit (9:30pm) and June 2 at Pacific Place (4pm) as part of SIFF's Face the Music series- a heart-felt musical dramedy one could describe as a Bro-mantic Once if it had been directed by Cameron Crowe in his prime.

Writer/actor/director Ryan O'Nan (with help from Brendan Leach and Keith Freudenberger) wrote and performed a majority film's music which is an original hybrid of angst-fueled indie mope blended with bizzaro kiddy instrumentation.

You can get the unbelievably lovely soundtrack on Rhino very soon and see "the band" live on tour this summer.
