Behind the Music
Christopher Pomerenke is a Valley music veteran who has always had a gift for grounding fun and funkiness with plenty of heart via projects like Less Pain Forever and Runaway Diamonds. As director of the documentary The Heart Is a Drum Machine, he shines the spotlight on other musicians and artists to see what makes them tick.
Produced by Ryan Page, Joe Mundo, and Hans Fjellestad of the 2004 music doc Moog, Heart explores the deep connections between music and humanity. With a score provided by Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips, the flick includes interviews with rock oddball Wayne Coyne, funkster George Clinton, MTV's Kurt Loder, Kimya Dawson, Tool's Maynard James Keenan, and many others.
Screenings are at 8 and 9:30 p.m. A reception from 7 to 11 features eats by Carly's Bistro and spins by DJ William Reed.
