John Woods of Nitehawk Cinema and the Return of Drop The Lime
On this week's Snacky Tunes, Darin and Greg Bresnitz are not only talking about music and food, but movies, too! Our hosts are joined in the studio by John Woods of Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. John got interested in movies when he opened his video rental store called Real Life Video in Williamsburg several years ago. Hear about how John went from video rentals to showing them on the big screen. Tune in to learn about the food and drink served at Nitehawk, and how John had to fight an eighty year-old law that prevented alcohol from being served at movie theaters. Hear about the film selection at Nitehawk - from first runs to old classics. Drop The Lime is live in the studio- his first appearance since the first episode of Snacky Tunes. Listen to Luca talk about the influence of blues and rockabilly on his electronic music, and how he has evolved since his beginnings with Trouble and Bass. Drop The Lime plays some of the tracks from his upcoming album live, and talks about eating on the road with Greg. This episode has been brought to you by Fairway Market.
"Also, a lot of people haven't seen these movies projected up on a big screen. It's a different experience seeing something that you've seen ten or fifteen times over the years, but up on a big screen." --John Woods on old movies at Nitehawk Cinema, Snacky Tunes
