My Morning Jacket are joining forces with award-winning filmmaker Todd Haynes for the latest edition of Unstaged: An Original Series from American Express. In partnership with YouTube and VEVO, Unstaged features some of the music industry's most breakthrough artists playing at landmark venues across the country, while tapping some of today's most influential filmmakers to direct the live-streams and using digital and social media to connect the online audience to the live shows in unexpected ways. Interactive digital features are set to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
Haynes will film the band's performance at Louisville's historic Palace Theater, which will be live-streamed at 9:00 PM EST here on Tuesday May 31st.
This marks the second collaboration between the director and the group, as My Morning Jacket's Jim James appeared in Haynes' Academy Award-nominated film I'm Not There. Previous performers in American Express' Unstaged series include Arcade Fire directed by Terry Gilliam; John Legend & the Roots directed by Spike Lee; Sugarland directed by Kenny Ortega; and Duran Duran directed by David Lynch.
