Jack Antonoff To Live-Score "The Breakfast Club!"

posted by Cole - 

Jack Antonoff is a man of MANY talents which include being the frontman of Bleachers, acting, producing, etc. 

His work, particularly that with his own band Bleachers, definitely has a very 80's vibe to it! I've always said their track "Rollercoaster" sounds like it's from a John Hughes movie.

Having said that he would be the perfect choice to compose a new score for classic movie "The Breakfast Club," right? Well, that's exactly what's happening!

For one night in LA, Jack will be live-scoring the movie as it's shown! Yes, a new score for the movie being done LIVE.

Love this! It's happening on April 1st. On doing this Jack says:

"I chose 'The Breakfast Club' because I think about that film often when I write. There are certain films and feelings that remind me of where I'm from.

"I grew up in suburban New Jersey in a similar state of strange boredom as 'The Breakfast Club.' I constantly thought about getting out, and that feeling is so present in this film. A lot of my world now is looking back at that time period from different vantage points."

Love this idea! Can we get this to happen in Philly too??
