Mrs. Magician song gets in movie trailer

‘Nightlife’ in trailer for IFC Films' ‘Why Stop Now’—plus, more music news

Up-and-coming indie rockers Mrs. Magician have a song, “Nightlife,” in a new trailer for IFC Films’ Why Stop Now, a comedy starring Jesse Eisenberg, Tracy Morgan and Melissa Leo.

The deal was worked out by L.A. label Vagrant Records, which works with Swami Records, the local label that released the band’s new album, Strange Heaven. The album is licensed for use in the trailer for all media, including online, TV and movie theaters, says Vagrant’s Holly Stewart. (She declined to say how much the band has been paid.)

The trailer came out last week, and frontman Jacob Turnbloom says he’s seen a slight up-tick in album sales and gotten emails from people asking where to get the album.

“It’s just cool to have our song play over some snappy Tracy Morgan dialogue,” he says.

Why Stop Now premiered at the Sundance Film Festival under the title Predisposed. It’s currently available on demand and comes out in theaters in August.



Cuckoo Chaos drummer Dave Mead has started a new side project with his girlfriend, Justine Marzoni. It’s called Kimono Dragon, and Mead compares it to Neutral Milk Hotel. Instead of laying down his usual groovy beats, he plays guitar and sings; Marzoni plays trumpet and also sings. “It started as just something to do creative-wise, but then it actually became kind of good,” Mead explains. They’ll play their first show at Tin Can Ale House on Saturday, July 28, and they plan to start recording before the end of the summer.

Folkies River City will celebrate the release of their debut album, The Flood & The Gavel, at Soda Bar on Friday, July 13. Drew Andrews will celebrate the release of his new EP, Goddamn, Yes I’m for Real, at the same show, and Jamuel Saxon will also perform.
