IFC New York is in the old Waverly Theater, Sixth Avenue at 3rd Street, across from the basketball courts.
They show an eclectic mix of documentary, independent and foreign stuff. And classics. They are one of the hosts of the Doc NYC Festival.
Disclaimer: I’ve had a membership for a few years, and sometimes wander in to see offbeat stuff.
Yesterday, when I noticed the “free for k-12 teachers” in the previews, I was seeing Miss Sharon Jones. Apparently I’ve been enjoying Sharon Jones and the Dap-kings for quite a while, without knowing anything about them.
A fan page on MySpace (remember MySpace?) says: “By the sound of them, you would think Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings started making funk-threaded soul music together in the 1960s.”
100 Days and 100 Nights
might be the catchiest. I’m Still Here
is autobiographical. But they do This Land Is Your Land
that is funked out, and totally enjoyable.
