SCREENING + Q&A + LIVE PERFORMANCES!

Culled from the personal archives of the "godfather of home recording," Spectacle is proud to welcome lo-fi living legend R. Stevie Moore for an evening of homemade rarities…

RSM has recorded over 400 albums from his bedroom and is widely considered one of the most influential songwriters of his generation, but it's his visual legacy and great talent as a performer that will be highlighted at these screenings.

The videos are a portrait of an artist with a sure hand and a mature voice who was wracked by crises of confidence and became increasingly desperate and isolated in pursuit of the success that never came. The work is as eclectic, exuberant, and vividly personal as his discography. His videos, unleashed on YouTube over the last decade, have contributed greatly to the recent explosion of interest in his long career.

Stevie was almost too ahead of his time: he pioneered home recording before "lo-fi" was celebrated in indie rock circles, and his DIY videos, many made with a VHS camcorder, pre-figured the YouTube phenomenon of self-broadcasting twenty years before its inception.

This sampling is a long overdue appreciation of RSM's film legacy, including amateur music videos, experimental shorts, live performances (including clips from the legendary cult TV series The Uncle Floyd Show) and many many more bizarre oddities, spices, and surprises!
