Article Contributed by gratefulweb | Published on Thursday, May 16, 2024

My Morning Jacket is lifting the curtain on Okonokos, a new 4K version of their acclaimed 2006 live concert film capturing a blistering 2-hour performance from the band’s November 2005 two-night stand at San Francisco, CA’s legendary Fillmore Auditorium mixed in 5.1 audio. Abramorama, a preeminent global distribution, marketing and sales partner for nonfiction and music films, will set up targeted event screenings globally in partnership with ATO Records, the band’s record label. The film will receive a number of limited theatrical screenings across the country later this month, just in time for My Morning Jacket’s eagerly awaited return to the Fillmore, a four-night headline run – with no repeats – set for May 27, 28, 30, and 31. The limited theatrical run will begin at San Francisco’s Alamo Drafthouse Cinema May 26-31. For complete details and showtimes, please see here. Watch the official trailer here.

Okonokos encapsulates My Morning Jacket at a peak moment in their career. Filmed and recorded on November 11-12, 2005, during the Z tour, the set draws heavily from that record and its predecessor, It Still Moves, for a scorching and exhilarating live concert experience which SPIN described as “an aesthetic-and-career-defining set...the album they were destined to make.” Among the film’s many highlights are “Gideon,” “One Big Holiday” “Lowdown,” “Wordless Chorus,” “Golden,” “Steam Engine,” “Mahgeetah” and more!

“It’s wild how much technology has changed since we shot OKONOKOS and released it on DVD so many moons ago,” says My Morning Jacket’s Jim James. “We are excited to bring it to you in all its new hi-res hi-def picture and sound, in a limited theatrical run. We hope you have as much fun as we did jumping back into its world again!”

Evan Saxon, President and Head of International Distribution, Abramorama added “I’m ecstatic to again be working with My Morning Jacket and bringing Okonokos to fans around the world. The film captures the band giving an amazing performance fans are still talking about.”
