The director had the unenviable task of sorting through a wealth of performances recorded during a 2 1/2 year period. We met the director briefly outside the theater. I mentioned I had heard of Largo because of Neil Finn performing there. He mentioned that he had filmed Neil but Neil didn't make it into the film (tsk tsk
). When I arrived, Deirdre and Vanessa were in line right in front of singer/songwriter, David Garza. David is a performer who started out in Austin (not sure if he still lives here) but he has been a regular performer at Largo over the years.
For all you FOTC trainspotters/diehards/whatever, there's only 1 song of theirs in the film so if you do see it in the theaters, don't leave after their song, ok ?
This is strictly a performance oriented film - no narration or interviews. The film is meant to show what it's like to see a performance at Largo. I've been to Largo once years ago and it brought back memories of that night.
The film does not have distribution yet (as the director told us) so you may have to be a little patient before it hits your local arthouse theater. Fingers crossed that there might be a soundtrack as the quality of the performances (not just FOTC) is absolutely fantastic.
