Published Apr 14, 2011Like many artists this weekend, gloomy indie rock dudes Interpol are playing the Coachella Music Festival. However, unlike most, the band will be sharing the stage with legendary director David Lynch, among others, for a multimedia experience that will be streamed live on the interweb.
The band's label Matador revealed in a blog posting that the men of Interpol will be joined by Lynch during their set this Friday (April 15), when he will present a handful of images and visuals while the band rocks out. Also on board are the Creators Project, Andi Watson, HPX and Wieden & Kennedy.
Things to be seen include the premiere of Lynch's animation I Touch a Red Button Man while the band performs the song "Lights." Throughout the rest of the night, the collective of artists will present "a visual juxtaposition of the seen and the unseen," filming the goings-on and manipulating the footage in real time.
"As the observer becomes the observed, the performance explores the deepening layers of covert surveillance, morphing data acquisition into visual beauty and questioning the fine line between the viewer and the voyeur," a press release for the event reads.
You can stream the show live at 7:25 p.m. PST on Coachella's YouTube channel.
