Watch Trailer For New Movie From Artist Who Just Played Missoula
A few days ago, Sleater-Kinney came to the Kettlehouse Amphitheater near Missoula and completely rocked the house. I know, I was there. I've been a fan of Sleater-Kinney for a long time, and this was the first time I got to see them live - it was an incredible set, with a great mix of new and old songs.
If you're not familiar with Sleater-Kinney, you may be familiar with one of its members for her other pursuits - Carrie Brownstein, who starred with Fred Armisen on the sketch comedy series Portlandia for eight seasons. Over the years, she's done some acting, some writing, some directing, and yeah, some music too - Sleater-Kinney has released two new albums in the last three years.
One of those albums, The Center Won't Hold, was actually produced by St. Vincent, and her friendship with Carrie Brownstein forms the basis of a new movie that's scheduled to be released next month. Just a few days after she performed in Missoula, that trailer has now dropped online.
The movie is called The Nowhere Inn, and it's a mockumentary-comedy-horror(?) movie that sees Brownstein directing a movie about St. Vincent's life, only for things to start to go awry. I'm really into this trailer, and I've heard interesting things about the movie - it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in January 2020, but it hadn't secured a release until now.
The movie is set to open in theaters and on VOD the same day, September 17th. Think you'll be checking it out?
