All My Friends Are Funeral Singers

Califone performs after the movie screening

The opposite of going into a movie with a lot of expectations is going to see one knowing nearly nothing at all. I like that, especially when it turns out to be a good movie. That was my experience with All My Friends Are Funeral Singers.

All that I knew going in was that our friend Megan Hovde Wilkins was in it, there was music by the Califone in it (and the performance we went to was going to have them performing the score live), and that it might be a little scary.

It turns out to be a ghost story, but not that scary. It was written and directed by a member of Califone, and their music makes up a big portion of the film. I have no idea what it'd be like to see the film on its own, because the band and the music were very present, in a good way, throughout the whole performance. If you get a chance to see one of the showings where they're performing the score, I'd do so.
