All Things Scorsese featuring a performance by Minneapolis psychedelic rockers Lazy Scorsese followed by a screening of Martin Scorsese's iconic 1990 crime film, "Goodfellas."
Acclaimed Minneapolis psychedelic rock band Lazy Scorsese combines elements of folk, pop, funk and shoegaze to create lush soundscapes centered around themes of love, interconnectedness, seeking truth, counter-culture, and the daily musings seen from the vantage point of the band's members.
Following the release of their debut EP, Grigio, Lazy Scorsese has shared the stage with national acts The Lemon Twigs, Sunflower Bean, The Donkeys and Kyle Craft -- and were a featured band along with Cake and Børns at the 2018 Basilica Block Party. They released their first full-length album in May 2019.
Lazy Scorsese is Anthony Oslund (guitar/vocals), Chris Micheals (bass), Dave Donovan (guitar), Ryan Barrett (drums), and Tryler Devonald (keys).
Directed by Martin Scorsese
Directed by Martin Scorsese with a screenplay co-written by Scorsese and Nicholas Pileggi (and adapted from Pileggi's 1985 non-fiction book,Wiseguy), this iconic American crime drama tells the story of the rise and fall of mob associate Henry Hill and his friends and family from 1955 to 1980.
Starring Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco and Paul Sorvino, Goodfellas was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, with Pesci winning for Best Supporting Actor. The film won five awards from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, including Best Film and Best Director. Goodfellas was named the year's best film by numerous critics and Rotten Tomatoes calls it "arguably the high point of Martin Scorsese's career."
Goodfellas is widely regarded as one of the greatest films in the gangster genre. In 2000, it was deemed "culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant" and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the United States Library of Congress.
