Song of the Day – Thursday 7/15/2010 Sourpatch July 15, 2010

Sourpatch are a San Jose foursome who mix twee pop with indie rock to create a sound reminiscent of their self-professed love of 1990’s pop. 

Their label Happy Happy Birthday to Me claims the band, “formed from a mutual love of songs about unbearably impossible romances, Sourpatch plays in the vein of influences such as Tiger Trap, Rocketship, Velocity Girl, Cub, Heavenly, Go Sailor, Black Tambourine, and so many 90’s west coast babes!”  Their debut album, Crushin’ was released the beginning of this year. 

No local shows coming up, but MizMuze will keep you posted so check the Conzert Calendar daily…

Are You a Maverick?

You betcha.  No.  Not the kind of Maverick that shoots wolves from helicopters, winks at opponents, and writes notes on their hands.   I’m talking about the kind of Maverick that shoots enemy MiG’s while flying upside down, flips the bird, and still looks hot while playing beach volleyball.  Now you’re talking to me Goose. 

Well if you fall into the second category then you are going to want to check out this year’s Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose.  Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Cinequest has been empowering the Maverick to astound, electrify, and inspire the world of cinema.  The Cinequest Film Festival presents a dynamic 12-day event of 200 international films with over 600+ film artists, technologists, and professionals from 44 countries.

Opening night begins tomorrow 2/23/2010 with the screening of “The Good Heart” starring Brian Cox (Match Point, Troy, The Bourne Identity) and Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine, Gigantic).  This year Deepak Chopra and Benjamin Bratt will be receiving Maverick awards and honors.  The festival closes on 3/6/2010 with the screening of “Mother,” a South Korean film about a mother (of course) devoted to her mentally challenged adult son.
