Nick Cave remains one of Australia's most mysterious music raconteurs, maintaining an enigmatic presence on the music scene via a number of various band incarnations since the 70s. There's been The Birthday Party, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Grinderman, not to mention his solo work and various collaborations with other artists. He also writes screenplays, scores films, and has popped up in acting roles too. There's not much the man can't do (he has seen some things and been some places) and Thornbury Picture House is ready and raring to celebrate this.
Dedicating an entire week to the legendary man, the cinema will screen various tributes to his work between June 29 and July 6. Documentaries, film scores, music videos, short films will all feature, including The Proposition, One More Time with Feeling, Wake in Fright and a 90-minute 'visual mixtape' of everything from Grinderman to footage of his first high-school band. If you're a fan of his music, you won't want to miss some of the rare footage on display. Some sessions are already sold out, so best book tickets in advance.
