Date and time for the screening will be announced in the coming days here: www.sxsw.com/film. Dubbed Run and Return and directed by Michael Thelin and Jose Louis Rios, this short documentary features Matisyahu's thoughtful reflections on his creative philosophy, celebrated career and musical synergy with his band Dub Trio, who also share their thoughts on their unique musical partnership with Matisyahu. The behind-the-scenes footage, filmed while on tour in the summer of 2010, captures the Grammy-nominated artist as he prepares to return to the famed music venue Stubb's in Austin, TX, to record Live at Stubb's Vol. II. The live CD/DVD, just released February 1st , is the second installment in his signature Live at Stubb's series.
After creating an indelible mark on the U.S. musical consciousness with his original 2005 Live at Stubb's release, Matisyahu has once again created a raw, inspiring musical journey filled with an unmatched vibrancy and electricity on stage. With Live at Stubb's Vol. II bringing his Stubb's experience full circle, the rare documentary footage shows incredible moments from that live show and serves as a look inside the impressive artistic evolution of one of the most beloved and pioneering artists in music today.
Live at Stubb's Vol. II is available now in stores and online in three formats: CD, DVD with documentary footage and a Deluxe Edition, which includes the CD/DVD and a 40-page booklet featuring an exclusive letter from Matisyahu, never-before-seen notes and song lyrics and photos chronicling the recording of Live at Stubb's Vol. II and other amazing performances from the past three years.
