$5 Cover Roundup

Posted By on Thu, Apr 30, 2009 at 9:41 AM


The $5 Cover rollout picks up steam tonight as the 15-"track" series has its world premiere at Malco's Paradiso. There are screenings at 7, 7:15, 9:30, and 9:45. The three earliest screenings are currently sold out, but extra tickets may be available at the last minute and will be sold via a wait list at the door. There are some tickets still remaining for the 9:45 showing. Tickets can be purchased at the Paradiso box office starting at 3 p.m.

You can read about the series in our cover story this week, on the streets and on the web now.

Craig Brewer will also be interviewed a 5 p.m. today on The Chris Vernon Show at 730 AM. (Personal plug: you can hear me every Tuesday at 5 p.m. on the Vernon Show.)

In other $5 Cover news:

The indie-rock blog Brooklyn Vegan previews the series from a Lucero perspective.

Entertainment Weekly shows off a clip from Track 1.

The Los Angeles Times writes long on the series, dubbing it a:

fascinating experiment in new media storytelling, combining the unabashed narcissism of reality TV with the raw, rough edges of indie cinema.

Flipside Memphis has its site up and running, with a preview trailer up.

A 15-song digital-only soundtrack from the series is ready for purchase, on iTunes and presumably other outlets as well.

A new trailer for the series:
