Thirteen years ago, the Coen-inspired music concert “Down from the Mountain” was held to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. This September 29th, Coenpalooza II will be launched to benefit the National Recording Preservation Foundation. According to Rolling Stone, the Coen Brothers will be performing all of the songs live, as a duo. Ethan Coen is said to be sequestered in exploration of saxophone logic while brother Joel is intent on opening new avenues of percussive interpretation. Not since Steve and Woody Allen have twin-brother filmmakers so thoroughly blurred the border of light and sound.
In related news, this album of Coen Brothers music is pretty great.
