Beastie Boys Offer Docu Sneak Peak

Dave Chappelle isn’t the only one getting in on the concerts-on-the-big-screen game these days. The Beastie Boys’ own stage shenanigans will soon reach a theater near you.

THINKFilm will screen a sneak preview of its Sundance hit Awesome; I F%!#in’ Shot That! Thursday, March 23–a week before its wider release on March 31–on nearly 200 screens at movie theaters across the country. The sneak peak will accompany a special short film, A Day in the Life of Nathaniel Hornblower, a behind-the-scenes look at Awesome‘s director, created specifically for the one-night event.

In the 30-minute short, actor David Cross stars as the elusive Hornblower, which, as s Beastie fanatics know, is the pseudonym used by Beastie Boy Adam Yauch. After March 23, the short will go into hiding–another reason to not miss the early opportunity.

Tickets for the sneak preview can be purchased at BigScreenConcerts.com (check out awesomeishotthat.com for a list of participating theaters).

Much like the Boys, Awesome defies convention. The documentary begins at New York City’s Madison Square Garden where the band–MCA (Yauch), Mike D, Adrock and Mix Master Mike–handed out 50 cameras to concertgoers at the sold-out performance. These 50 fans capture the vibe and atmoshpere that is a Beastie Boys concert in a way no live musical performance has arguably ever before been shown.

One thing’s for sure: Awesome; I F%!#in’ Shot That! is reppin’ Manhattan the best the Beastie Boys can.
