Del Rey Fantastic Planet Live Score May / June!!!!
DEL REY TO PERFORM LIVE SCORE TO SCI-FI CLASSIC FANTASTIC PLANET
Psychedelic post-rockers Del Rey perform a live score to the animated sci-fi classic Fantastic Planet at Lincoln Hall on Thursday, May 5.
The beautiful and surreal imagery of Fantastic Planet (1973) may be the perfect cinematic complement for Del Rey’s cosmic soundscapes and epic odysseys. In the film, which won the Grand Prix at Cannes, humans are kept as pets by blue humanoid alien giants called Traags. Said to be based on the Soviet occupation of the Czech Republic, the story centers on a human named Terr, who escapes the Traags and incites other humans to revolt.
Del Rey will also be performing the score in Spain later in May as part of a tour based around their upcoming show at the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona.
Lincoln Hall will provide an ideal setting for the screenings – the club is a converted movie theater.
