Music & Performance

All My Friends are Funeral Singers

Thursday Dec 10, 2009 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM This is a past program

Chicago-based Califone provide the interactive, live soundtrack for this special presentation of bandleader Tim Rutili’s debut feature-length film All My Friends Are Funeral Singers. Like the seemingly benevolent ghosts inhabiting a rickety house in the film, Rutili and his bandmates inhabit two worlds for this program: on the silver screen and on the theater stage. After the screening/performance, Califone will launch into a straightforward musical set not to be missed. (2009, 90 min., Dir: Tim Rutili)

Please note: Seating is limited to the first 295 people. Hammer members will have preferred access until 7:45pm. This program is expected to be very full.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss. 

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
