Penny Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series presents Jim Jarmusch and Carter Logan (SQÜRL) Staff Pick

When: Tue., Feb. 4, 7-9 p.m. 2020
Price: Free
When Metro Times caught up with self-described “enthusiastically marginal rock band” Sqürl, composed of filmmaker Jim Jarmusch and producer/composer Carter Logan in 2017, they agreed that they jump on any opportunity to visit Detroit. Jarmusch, a native of Akron, Ohio, is an honorary member of Detroit’s vibrant rock ‘n’ roll tapestry. After all, Jarmusch chose Detroit as his backdrop for his 2013 existential, malaise-hazed vampire tale Only Lovers Left Alive, starring the eternally vampy Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston. And it was Jarmusch’s fandom over Detroit’s own godfathers of punk, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, that led him to make 2016’s unconventional love letter Gimme Danger. (Iggy also appeared in his 2019 star-studded zombie flick, The Dead Don’t Die.) For this edition of the Penny Stamps Speaker Series, Sqürl will live-score a selection of films by the late great Dadaist and surrealist artist Man Ray, as well as a selection of songs from the duo’s forthcoming record, Some Music for Robby Müller, dedicated to the late cinematographer.
