The Symbolyc One Powers The New The Social Network Spot--But He's Not The Only Area Musician Involved in the Facebook Film.
If you've beenpayingattention
, then you've long known that Dallas' ownSymbolyc One
is the man behind the beat of Kanye West's inescapable hit of the moment, the King Crimson-sampling "Power." And, sure enough, the hits keep coming for that track--it's currently being used in the as-seen-above-and-on-TV advertisement for David Fincher's highly anticipated Facebook-focused filmThe Social Network
But, turns out, S1's not the only local musician with ties to the film. As Robert mentioned back in July, another local musician, Caleb Landry Jones, who we introduced you to via his band Robert Jones back in August of last year for a taping of our DC9 in Space series, has a role in the film--as "Fraternity Guy," according to his IMDB page. It's not the actor/musician's first gig by any stretch: You may have seen him No Country for Old Men or this year's The Last Exorcism, or, yes, as a musician in NBC's Friday Night Lights, where he plays the drums (as he does in real life) in Landry Clarke's garage band. And you can see him in the upcoming X-Men reboot X-Men: First Class, where he'll play Banshee, at some point in 2011.
So there you go.
And speaking of our weekly video series: It's coming back--tonight even, as we return to our old haunt at 122 E. 5th St. in Oak Cliff at 7:30 for a filming. Stop on by, if you feel so inclined. As always, these tapings are free to attend.
