Weekly Picks From the Band

Book of the Week
Interview with the VampireInterview with the Vampire is a vampire novel by Anne Rice written in 1973 and published in 1976. It was the first novel to feature the enigmatic vampire Lestat, and was followed by several sequels, collectively known as The Vampire Chronicles. A vampire named Louis tells his 200-year-long life story to reporter Daniel Molloy (who is only referred to as « the boy » in the novel). A film version, Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles, was released in 1994. To date, the novel has sold some 8 million copies worldwide.
Movie of the Week
CapoteCapote is a 2005 biographical film about Truman Capote, following the events during the writing of Capote’s non-fiction book In Cold Blood. Philip Seymour Hoffman won several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Actor, for his critically acclaimed portrayal of the title role. The movie itself was based on the biography called Capote by Gerald Clarke. The movie was filmed mostly in Manitoba, in the autumn of 2004, and was released on September 30, 2005, to coincide with Truman Capote’s 81st birthday.
Album of the Week
Dead Kennedys - Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables
Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables is the debut album by the American hardcore punk band Dead Kennedys. It was released in September 1980 through Faulty Products in the United States (later by the DK’s own Alternative Tentacles label) and through Cherry Red Records in the United Kingdom.
