While most of the planet on Sunday night was tuned into AMC to watch the finale of “Breaking Bad,” music lovers in New York City set their DVRs and headed to The Town Hall for “Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating The Music Of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis.’ ” And they got a big musical treat.
Stars from the film including Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and Adam Driver, were joined by an array of musical talent such as Marcus Mumford, Elvis Costello, The Avett Brothers, Joan Baez, Rhiannon Giddens of Carolina Chocolate Drops, Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Patti Smith, Gillian Welch and Jack White to perform songs from the film, and Bleeding Cool has dug up some footage which has landed online. Now, a caveat: the performances are great, particularly Mumford and Isaac performing the film’s theme “Fare Thee Well,” but the real surprise song of the movie is “Please Mr. Kennedy” which gets one of the biggest laughs in “Inside Llewyn Davis,” so you might want just wait until you can see it in the Coens’ film first.
Showtime will air the complete concert on Friday, December 13th at 9 PM. “Inside Llewyn Davis” opens on December 6th. Watch below.
