David Lynch to Direct Webcast of LA Duran Duran Concert

This could be interesting. Pitchfork says that David Lynch of Mulholland Drive fame will be directing a webcast of an upcoming Duran Duran concert at the Mayan in LA on March 23rd. Lynch details his concept for the webcast in the press release: “The idea is to try and create on the fly, layers of images permeating Duran Duran on the stage. A world of experimentation and hopefully some happy accidents.”

The webcast is part of an online series called “American Express Unstaged” which partners famous directors with equally famous musical counterparts. Last year Terry Gilliam directed an Arcade Fire show while Spike Lee took the helm of a Roots/John Legend production.

Can’t wait to see what kind of “happy accidents” Lynch can come up with live on the web this year.
