Those who have been paying attention to the Blog-o-STIFF already know it, but for those who don’t, STIFF 2008 will feature none other than MOBY (dj set). We are very excited to be partnering with USC Events for the show on Sunday, June 8th at Neumos. There will be a special presale starting at 10AM on Tuesday, May 13th for all of you folks. The rest of the world doesn’t get to buy until Friday.
And use the password: lastnight
Moby was a natural and obvious choice for STIFF not only because he is a fantastic artist, but because of what he has done for the film-community with MobyGratis.
Weekend Film Challenge contestants will also be including music from the MobyGratis library into their short films, which Moby will be judging. Moby’s non-profit project, MobyGratis, has currently been used thousands of times by film students and independent film directors around the world. Outside of MobyGratis, Moby has had his songs in several dozens of different tv/film outlets and recently scored the film Southland Tales.
Moby is currently on tour for his latest CD Release, Last Night, released April 1st, (4 stars, Rolling Stone). Last Night shows Moby returning to the dance floor with force, after the singer-songwriter moves of 2005's Hotel album.
