Press on the Coen Brothers' (see below) latest feature.

Won't be long before the nation experiences more about the Greenwich Village scene and Gerde's Folk City.

The new Coen Brothers' film, Inside Llewyn Davis, is engrossing the critics at the film festival in Cannes. Some of the characters' names are artistically twisted for the movie. A little bird told me that there's a club owner named "Nick" Porco (NOTE Dec 2013-Charcter is named 'Pappi Corsicata) in the flick and the bars and clubs (The Kettle of Fish, Gerde's Folk City) are noted by their real names.

The star of the movie, Oscar hopeful Oscar Isaac, opened up for Erik Frandsen last March for the FRIENDS OF MIKE PORCO concert series.

Oscar plays his own guitar and sings in the movie; footage and audio concealed by the Coens so far.

It won't be long before the delicate sounds are known by all.

Also amongst the crowd, co-stars Goodman, Garrett Hedlund
and Ethan Phillips. Where's F. Murray?

John Goodman joined in for the finále

After party, party at Chez Fresneaux, 114 Macdougal

Tuesday, the FRIENDS OF MIKE PORCO series draws to a close. I'm up to my ears in filming the documentary on Gerde's. I'm gettin' out of show biz so I can educate the Coen Brothers with my own film. PORCO POWER!
