The Annals of Rock Snobbery

The beardy young men behind the brilliant Channel 101 rockudrama Yacht Rock are paying a visit to New York this coming weekend, playing all ten existing episodes of the show and intimating that there’ll be some new material screened. You should check out their delightful low-budget output at Fontanas on Eldridge Street in Lower Manhattan on November 3rd or 4th. (See flier below.)


And the fun doesn’t end with the weekend. On Monday, November 6, the L.A.-based Channel 101’s New York City spinoff, Channel 102, hosts its monthly screening at Tribeca Cinemas on Varick Street, which will feature the latest episode of Mitch Magee’s Sexual Intercourse: American Style, a superbly acted and filmed mini-comedy about a quartet of very Caucasian swingers in suburban Connecticut. Don’t be put off by the title, which makes it sound like a one-note goof; Magee is a great writer, his actors are fantastic and totally committed to playing it straight, and Magee’s got promise as an auteur, showing flourishes that evoke John Cassavetes and David Chase. Watch all five existing episodes of Magee’s show in sequence and thrill to the sight of a funny young guy creating a mysterious world that abides by its own (swingy) rules.
