IDIOTS,

BANANAZZZ will be screening at this years WFMU record fair whatever. these record dorks will be shaking in the presence of an enigmatic genius like myself. watch this film to be reminded of what punk can be—SEXY, DOGMATIC and DAMN INTENSE. dont even try to shake my hand at the post-screening q&a or else i will superman punch you.

the screening is on sunday, november 24th at 2pm (ugh, daytime) at the metropolitan pavilion in the bourgeois borough of new york city.

also if you donated to my cause…be prepared to receive your fan pack along with your very own copy of the BANANAZZZ MANIFESTO sometime soon. 

brettdavis:

On Sunday, November 24th at 2pm, BANANAZZZ will be screening at the WFMU Record Fair! The film follows Craig Evanhalen’s journey as he creates a “punk” band to cash in on the underground and prove his worth after his past as a member of failed boy band CUL8R. Check out the video above, which is an excerpt from BANANAZZZ, where Craig asks his parents for money to fly to SXSW. 

This is a particularly special time as The Best Show on WFMU is coming to an end. This show has been such a big part of my life, and seeing it come to an end is a big deal, dere. So if you haven’t gotten on board, DO IT! Also, feel free to reminisce with some mid-2000s Best Show appearances from the likes of creepy second-generation comedian Akiva Smirnoff, and the MC Steinberg/Ted Leo rap battle, with a panel of celebrity judges from Newbridge. 

I’m really honored to screen the film here, and I’m excited for the entire fair, which includes some really great stuff including documentaries about Raymond Scott, Joe Meek, Andrew Bird (you know, people in the same category as Craig Evanhalen), a puppet film by Quintron and Miss Pussycat, and live performances by Shannon & The Clams, Liquor Store, Jeffrey Lewis and Blowfly and tons of weird record nerds mulling around! Spread the word!

craig evanhalen here, the enigmatic star of acclaimed rockdoc BANANAZZZ. today, i come to you with a heavy heart.
director kate sweeney and the filmmakers behind the BANANAZZZ had an honest dream: to make me, craig evanhalen, the punk bob dylan. we succeeded in that dream, but it came at a cost.
now the filmmakers are in debt to a mafioso—i’ll say the fucker’s name, vinny “the dog” d’agostino—and he is tired of waiting. he says he is going to MURDER the filmmakers if they do not raise the funds in the next 38 hours. i know, it sucks.
so please, open up your hearts and wallets and save the lives of some intrepid young filmmakers with bright futures ahead of them by donating to the BANANAZZZ indiegogo. if you do not, and i do not mince words here, their blood will be on your hands. evanhalen out.
