The 2023 Tribeca Festival, presented by OKX, today announced the second annual Music Lounge at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, featuring four days and nights of exclusive performances, special guest appearances, insider talks, and more. The Tribeca Music Lounge, sponsored by Tubi, is open to the public from June 8-11 and offers Festival attendees the opportunity to experience the intersection of film and music.
The Music Lounge highlights four distinct experiences, kicking off with an “Indie Sleaze Revival” featuring New York City artists Tei Shi and Frost Children.
The weekend follows with a musical performance by David Duchovny, ahead of the world premiere of his film Bucky F*cking Dent; the first U.S. show of Australian Grammy-nominated artist Jitwam; R&B performance by the legendary Eddie Chacon; and an Iranian showcase with artists LuNika – the brother-sister duo behind the viral Iranian protest song “Women Life Freedom” – Habibi and Sussan Deyhim. The cast of Mountains is performing a comedy set, following the film’s world premiere at Tribeca; and Ali Dee is moderating a conversation on soundtracks with film composers from Tribeca Festival films, in partnership with BMI.
Tribeca Festival also announced free programming, including Drag Story Hour – an afternoon of banned stories and songs for kids of all ages; a screening of Planet B-Boy (2008), and a conversation with b-boy legend Ken Swift; a master class on filmmakers’ rights to their work; and a screening of the family-friendly classic Shark Tale (2004).

Moving the action out of the woods and into the city, “Evil Dead Rise” tells a twisted tale of two estranged sisters, played by Sutherland and Sullivan, whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh-possessing demons, thrusting them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of family imaginable.
“Evil Dead Rise” is the fifth installment in the Evil Dead franchise.
Directed by Lee Cronin, the film stars Alyssa Sutherland, Lily Sullivan, Gabrielle Echols, Morgan Davies, Nell Fisher, and Mia Challis.
“Evil Dead Rise” is set to be released by Warner Bros. Pictures on April 21, 2023.
Today, Michigan rapper and producer NF announces his “Hope Tour”.
The massive 47 show runs across the US, Canada, Europe, and UK in support of his forthcoming studio album, HOPE, releasing April 7. Produced by Live Nation, the North American leg of the tour will feature special guest Cordae and kick off on Wednesday, July 12th at Schottenstein Center in Columbus making stops across the U.S. in Philadelphia, Anaheim, Denver, and more before wrapping up in Laval at Place Bell on Sunday, September 3rd. The 16-date European leg kicks off on September 23rd at the Fabrique in Milan making stops in Switzerland, Belgium, Ireland, and more before wrapping up in London at Eventim Apollo on October 15th.
Last month NF returned with the stirring new single “HOPE” (NF Real Music/Virgin Music). The song finds the multi-Platinum hitmaker at his most raw and unfiltered as he assesses his musical journey thus far and looks to the future. Hope is accompanied by a suitably uplifting visual, which captures the MC’s defiance and authenticity. Watch it HERE.
Next up is NF’s facetious “MOTTO”, of which The New York Times says, “in his early career, NF sounded as if he was internalizing all the pressures of the world, but now he sounds free and calm, dismissing those same pressures with a shrug.” Watch the pointed video HERE. Continue reading →

Directed by Benjamin Millepied, “Carmen” is a gritty modern day tale, with a majestic score by Nicholas Britell, and dream-like dance sequences that evoke magic realism. Melissa Barrera plays Carmen, with Paul Mescal as Aidan. Also in the film are Rossy de Palma and Tracy “The DOC” Curry.
The story follows a young and fiercely independent woman who is forced to flee her home in the Mexican desert following the brutal murder of her mother, another strong and mysterious woman.
In the film, Carmen survives a terrifying and dangerous illegal border crossing into the US, only to be confronted by a lawless volunteer border guard who cold-bloodedly murders two other immigrants in her group. When the border guard and his patrol partner, Aidan—a Marine with PTSD—become embroiled in a deadly standoff, Carmen and Aidan are forced to escape together.
San Diego, CA-based Slightly Stoopid and Sublime With Rome announced today the first round of dates for their Summertime 2023 tour. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will hit outdoor amphitheaters and select festivals across the country. Joining Slightly Stoopid and Sublime With Rome are special guests Atmosphere and The Movement.
The tour represents the culmination of a 25-year brotherhood. “Summertime 2023” will cross the US, hitting outdoor amphitheaters and select festivals along with special guests Atmosphere and The Movement. Artist presale on Tuesday, March 7 at 10am local time. Local pre-sale is on Thursday, March 9 at 10am local time, while public on-sale is on Friday, March 10 at 10am local time. For additional information, visit www.livenationentertainment.com.
The historical significance of this package is extraordinary as Slightly Stoopid joins forces with Sublime With Rome on tour for the first time ever. It all traces back to legend Bradley Nowell (Sublime’s original frontman) and Sublime’s early influence on the career of Slightly Stoopid. After initially hearing Miles and Kyle practicing while they were teenagers, Nowell signed them to his indie label imprint Skunk Records while the band members were still in high school.
Nowell later produced and released their debut studio album Slightly $toopid in 1996 on Skunk, and appeared on the hidden track “Prophet,” now a staple in the Slightly Stoopid live repertoire nearly 25 years after its original recording. Together these groups became the forerunners of a genre of music and lifestyle movement that will be reflected through the deep catalogs of songs about to be performed across the country.
“We couldn’t be more excited for the Summertime 2023 tour,” says Miles Doughty. “We haven’t toured with Sublime since the early years of Stoopid and we are really excited to be back with our brothers on what we like to call the ultimate summer band camp. We’re stoked to debut some new songs and play new venues and cities we haven’t hit for a while. And most importantly we can’t wait to be playing music for all of you this summer… between the on-stage collabs and the backstage hangs it’s gonna be insane! The Stoopidheads are what fuels Slightly Stoopid. Should be an epic summer of madness!!!” Continue reading →
Square Enix® announced today that the original soundtrack for the Action RPG Forspoken is now available for purchase through the Square Enix Store. A digital download version of the soundtrack is also available for purchase.
With music by Garry Schyman and Bear McCreary, Forspoken puts players in the shoes of Frey Holland, an ordinary young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in a fantastical and dangerous land called Athia. Frey takes center stage in Forspoken, exploring an unknown world and facing treacherous trials to unravel the mystery behind Athia.
Composer Garry Schyman’s award-winning music can be heard in nearly every audio-visual media, including feature films, prime-time television, and video games. His haunting orchestral scores for the globally acclaimed video games Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and Bioshock Infinite have earned him multiple awards, including top honors for Best Original Score from the British Academy of Film & Television (BAFTA) and the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences.
As one of the world’s most celebrated composers of video game music, Schyman is notable for his versatility of style and unique ability to fluidly draw from multiple eclectic sources of inspiration. He captured the fantasy world of Tolkien for the adventure game Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (nominated for a BAFTA award) and Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War and paid playful homage to ’50s sci-fi with his score for the 2005 game Destroy all Humans! (followed by two sequels). He accelerated heartbeats with his thunderous orchestral scores in action games like Resistance: Retribution and Dante’s Inferno and gave a nod to the hypnotic style of Bernard Herrmann in the mystery game Voyeur.
The film is a portrayal of a real-life figure Father Gabriele Amorth, a priest who acted as chief exorcist of the Vatican and who performed more than 100,000 exorcisms in his lifetime. He passed away in 2016 at the age of 91.
Along with Crowe, the horror thriller stars Alex Essoe, Franco Nero, Laurel Marsden, Daniel Zovatto, Cornell John, Bianca Bardoe
The film is directed by Julius Avery, from the screenplay by Michael Petroni and Evan Spiliotopoulos.
Sony Pictures Releasing is set to release “The Pope’s Exorcist” on April 14, 2023.
Amorth wrote two memoirs, An Exorcist Tells His Story and An Exorcist: More Stories, and detailed his experiences battling Satan and demons that had clutched people in their evil.
