Local independent film, I Am Going To Kill Someone This Friday, sets a new bar for how indie productions are produced and what should be expected from the end result, offering moviegoers a quality experience that dares to reach for the quality and consistency of big budget films while enjoying the depth and edginess that is commonly exclusive to indie cinema. With a story inspired by Hitchcock and an aesthetic inspired by Kubrick, ‘Kill’ lands right on the mark it intended to hit. I Am Going To Kill Someone This Friday will screen for a limited audience in Jacksonville, Florida …

New Music Video: Daryl Hance Has a Sense of Humor?

Mofro co-founder Daryl Hance has a new video for the song “Inside” from 2016’s Wild Blue Iris album.

Even had the gear on with the sweats and knit cap, but only because it was really cold. He had a pretty good time making this one. Inside is kind of a serious song, but he’s always more for making videos that are in the comedy/parody/satire realm if it lends itself to that. A couple shows coming up this week… 2/16 – Lake Shore Bar – Jacksonville, FL …
