Although we have a pretty vibrant, poppin' music scene here in the 'Nix these days, not that many folks outside of our desert metropolis seem to recognize that. So I was stoked when I found out that Truxton Records rockabilly/psychometal act Grave Danger has a song featured in the new Guy Pearce flick First Snow. It's called "Fix-it Man" and tonight you can go scope the movie's premiere at the Camelview theatre in Scottsdale at 7 p.m., though you should hit the band up on their Myspace page or arrive at least by 6 p.m. if you want a pass.
The movie actually sounds pretty dope, click through to read the plot summary...
Wound tight and cocky, Jimmy Starks (Guy Pearce) is a smooth-talking salesman certain he's on the verge of a big break. Even when his car stalls in the middle of nowhere, a roadside soothsayer (J.K. Simmons) assures him a windfall is on its way. But although Jimmy should be happy when his boss suddenly agrees to financially back his business venture, he starts to become paranoid instead.
As his girlfriend Deirdre (Piper Perabo) and his best friend/ business partner Ed (William Fichtner) watch him slowly come unwound, Jimmy wonders if a past betrayal of his friend, newly paroled Vince (Shea Whigham), could be catching up to him. And, as the weather turns cold, Jimmy can't help but fear the mysterious seer's other prediction... that there'll be no tomorrow after the first snow.
