Screening Friday June 28th at Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena

Very excited to announce a screening on June 28th at The Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, CA. at 8 P.M. There will also be an acoustic performance following the screening by Matthew Teardrop. Locally brewed, craft beer will be available courtesy of Edgecliffe Brewing Company. This is a free, all ages event. Please come out and enjoy the film, some beer and great music.



Bury Me In The Salton Sea

“Bury Me In The Salton Sea” was written and performed by Matthew Teardrop off his solo album “Drunk as Fuck”. The footage was filmed on 16mm film by Director of Photography Tomm Jacobsen. This reel of film was not edited or manipulated in anyway. This is a single reel of film that was shot throughout the day of February, 20th 2012 then sat in my desk, without my knowledge, until it was processed at the completion of post-production in December of 2012

Please support independent music and film by purchasing Mr. Teardrop’s album here:

Let’s Go Camping!

Hey everybody! Wanted to iron out a few details about the festival. There will be a bus leaving Los Angeles (meeting place to to be determined) on the morning of Saturday, February 25th 2012. That bus will be arriving in Slab City approximately around noon – 1 o’clock. The music will begin around 2 or 3 pm. (depending on when the bus arrives). The bus will then leave to take everyone back to LA on sunday morning February 26th. That means everyone will be camping out at Slab City Saturday night. There will be pop up tents and chairs for shade during the day as well as water tanks, port-o-potties and hand sanitizer stations. There will be plenty of room under the bus to bring camping gear and provisions. BRING FOOD! If you are coming out to just enjoy the show then please pack a cooler with your own food and we will provide a means to prepare it! If you aren’t down to camp but still want to see the spectacle there are links to nearby hotels below. Thank you and have a marvelous day!
