A BAND AND A MOVIE: Waxahatchee + Days of Heaven!

The Band & A Movie series invites some of our favorite musicians to curate a film that inspired them, and play a set afterwards.

Katie Crutchfield, of Waxahatchee, presents Days of Heaven, followed by a live set! Waxahatchee—named for a creek near Katie’s parents’ Alabama home—has been a beloved fixture of the indie scene since her lo-fi 2012 debut, American Weekend. Followed by Cerulean Salt (2013) and, most recently, Ivy Tripp (2015), Crutchfield, now Philadelphia-based, continues to churn out songs of understated intimacy, with a hint of twang reminding listeners of her Southern roots.

Katie has chosen to screen Days of Heaven, Terrence Malick’s peachy-hued and ethereal 70s gem, set primarily on a Texas Panhandle farm circa 1916, and arguably one of the prettiest films ever made.

Dir. Terrence Malick, 1978, DCP, 94 min.
