Beasts of the Southern Wild Live
Lost Bayou Ramblers join Wordless Music Orchestra in a live score performance to the screening of Beasts of the Southern Wild.
Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space
From the Symphony Space website:
Director Benh Zeitlin's magical realist fable set outside New Orleans, "a passionate and unruly explosion of Americana," (The New York Times) is the most celebrated indie film of the decade, winning countless awards and four Oscar nominations including Best Picture. The score, by Zeitlin and Dan Romer, is a grandly moving suite of music performed live here by the 25-piece Wordless Music Orchestra to a new music-less print of the film created specially for the project. This rare event has only happened once before in New York, but the score has taken on a life of its own--excerpts were performed by the LA Philharmonic in 2014 at the Hollywood Bowl under the direction of Gustavo Dudamel, and the live score was performed to the film the Barbican Arts Centre in London in July.
These two shows, the only NYC performances of the season, will also feature the exceptional Lost Bayou Ramblers, who are on the film soundtrack and will appear as part of this project with Wordless Music for the first time.
Merci, and spread the word!
Saturday, January 10, we perform along with Big Sam's Funky Nation and Naughty Professors for EXPORT NOLA, a showcase of Louisiana music presented by the BACKBEAT FOUNDATION, doors are at 6pm, show starts at 8pm, c'mon y'all!

MERCI Y'ALL, FOR A GREAT YEAR!
2014 marked the 15th year of Lost Bayou Ramblers, and the release of our 7th album, GASA GASA LIVE, which just got named to 50 albums of the year by fransschuman.com, in very good company. The year started out with filming and recording for a -top secret- project, which will come out in 2015 (can't wait to share the secret when it's time!), and will end with two local shows at some of our favorite hometown venues, Bluemoon Saloon (Dec. 26) & Tipitinas (Dec. 27). And everything in between has been nothing short of amazing, from opening for ARCADE FIRE on the REFLEKTOR tour in Houston and Austin, to 4 great festivals in Canada, a performance at CELEBRATE BROOKLYN (our dream venue ), and performing with a full orchestra in New York and London for the BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD screening and live score performance.
Thank y'all all for an amazing year, and we look forward to more fun and madness in 2015!
