Bishop Allen Screen New Film at MoMA, Announce Tour

Bishop Allen have proved a few times over that they can float quite successfully between the mediums of music and film. This began with their friendship with mumblecore master Andrew Bujalski (Funny Ha Ha, Mutual Appreciation). The results have presumably been aided by the band members remaining within a certain comfort zone (i.e. playing young aspiring musicians relocating to New York City- weird huh?), and they continue in this vein with Bob Byington's Harmony and Me. Singer Justin Rice will play a recently dumped downer whose complaints have become too much even for his close friends, causing him to turn to songwriting. The film debuted at NYC's Museum of Modern Art Friday and will be showing until this Thursday September 24.

The band also announced their fall tour, which is structured as a sort of loose autobiographical journey, beginning in Cambridge and ending in Brooklyn.
