Stephin Merritt will be curating a series of films at 92Y Tribeca in celebration of the release of Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields. The theme of the films is described as "Gathering of Country Houses," which Stephin explains quite eloquently here.
I also neglected to post this interview with Stephin wherein we learn Irving's musical abilities, Stephin's fondness for cassettes, and a bevy of other information. There's also this interview with Sam Davol about the Films at the Gate film festival. Well worth watching!
