Vampires and Rockers Headline the Red Carpet at TIFF 2013
The following evening saw a huge amount of buzz in the city for the official party of Only Lovers Left Alive hosted at the historic Courthouse venue. Media from around the world converged to cover the red carpet entrance where, celebrities and VIP’s joined a TIFF party that can only be described mildly as enthusiastic. With an homage to Jim Jarmusch’s affinity for weaving music into his films, Toronto alt-rockers The Sadies took the stage and simply blew the roof off the building. The culmination of their incredible show was an unexpected encore where the Sadies played a 15 minute rambling set of rockabilly favorites, 50’s covers and original guitar licks that saw the Director, cast and crew rocking out in the front row alongside fans. It wasn’t until the wee hours of Saturday that the dance floor cleared and the final guests left into the night.
