Buffalo Moon with Blow Up

Part of Summer Music & Movies 2011

Music: Buffalo Moon

“Midwestern charm with that instantly recognizable South American allure…just take the leap into this adventurous sound.” – City Pages

Describing their sound as “South America meets South Dakota,” the breezy beach pop of Buffalo Moon conjures sultry bossa nova, samba soul, and dreamy Tropicalia all whirled together by Karen Freire’s (Ecuador/Minneapolis) infectious English/Spanish vocal style. Imagine Astrud Gilberto chillin’ poolside with Stereolab and you’ve got the perfect soundtrack for the setting summer sun.

Movie: Blow-Up

Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni
“A fascinating picture, which has something real to say about the matter of personal involvement and emotional commitment in a jazzed-up, media hooked-in world …. vintage Antonioni fortified with a Hitchcock twist…” —New York Times

David Hemmings stars as cynical and mod Thomas, swinging London’s top fashion photographer in this classic about the power of the image. One day, upon enlarging seemingly innocuous photos taken in a park, he uncovers in the blow up a potentially deadly secret. With Vanessa Redgrave and Veruschka. 1966, 16mm, 111 minutes.

Current DJs: The Morning Show
