More FILM SCHOOL-SXSW press......

South By Southwest Diary: March 17
A sleeper act of the evening was Film School, a San Francisco five-piece that nicely taps into a melodic psychedelic sound in the vein of the Secret Machines. There's an element of shoegazing to the group, but Film School builds its tunes out of the noise, not with it, and lets M83-like keyboards carry the arrangements.

4 days. 1,344 bands. 50 venues. One man's quest for the next big thing By Joan Anderman, Globe Staff | March 27, 2005

Film School, a noisy shoegazer band from San Francisco that's on Kierszenbaum's list of acts to watch, plays at 8 at Buffalo Billiards. Kierszenbaum appreciates the intense textures but frets about what market constraints and major-label expectations would do to them. He's not sure he could ask these guys for a three-minute song. ''It's not just a question of are they good for us, but are we good for them."

Next up is Film School from San Francisco, a band I have seen before and like a lot. They are playing a massive room and are too quiet and not quite at full strength for some reason. Songs like '11:11' still rock out in a very Cure fashion, but some of the new material dawdles a bit, also in a very Cure fashion. Amazing bass player though. They are followed by French Kicks who are tuneful indie boys within whose chests beat MOR hearts.
