Third Film:Acoustic installment announced with Neko Case and Repo Man

Film:Acoustic, the series of film screenings paired with talks by musicians, returns to Durham's Carolina Theatre again next month for a presentation of cult hit Repo Man, with Neko Case discussing the film. Case was last in town back in the fall for a sold-out gig at the Cradle with The New Pornographers.

The goal of Film:Acoustic is to present films that inspire particular artists, along with a discussion with the artist about what the film means to them. Joining Case will be Michael Nesmith, who was an executive producer of Repo Man. Yes, he was also once in the 1960s pop outfit The Monkees.

The series debuted in December with The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne discussing the 1974 film The Night Porter. This month's installment is this Monday with Americana star Lucinda Williams and the 1979 adaptation of Flannery O'Connor's Wise Blood. Tickets to Monday's program are still available, and tickets for Case and Repo Man are on sale now. And while Coyne didn't play any music at his program, Williams is expected to play a few tunes—no word yet on which way Case will go.
