CMJ Day 3: NYC Premiere of Kevin Smith’s Zack and Miri Make a Porno at Regal Cinemas Union Square; caUSE co-MOTION!/Stars Like Fleas at Piano’s

October 28, 2008

Day 3 was a busy one for CMJ, and all of the directors were extremely excited to see Kevin Smith’s new movie Zack and Miri Make a Porno premier in New York City at Regal Cinemas. I’ve been a fan of Smith’s since seeing Dogma when I was twelve and immediately fell in love with his others like Clerks, Chasing Amy, Mallrats and Clerks 2. I like to forget about Jersey Girl. Zack and Miri was chocked full of raunchy sex jokes and, of course, porno. Starring Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks, the movie is about two platonic friends that are so broke that they decide to shoot their own porn. With the help of Smith-staples Jason Mewes and Jeff Anderson, as well as pornstars Traci Lords and Katie Morgan, the crew shoot some porn with “Cockachino” in the title, all the while Rogen and Banks trying to resist their urges to be more than friends. Smith did a Q & A afterwords that was almost as funny as the film itself, and a welcome change from the shows all week. All I have is a picture of the line:

After the flick and Q & A we all headed down to Piano’s to see the show there. Tobacco was again headlining this night, but we went for caUSE co-MOTION! and the Crystal Stilts. Unfortunately I stepped outside after caUSE co-MOTION! and due to limited space in the venue could not get back in. Sooo we went up to the “lounge” area where even more bands were playing and caught the end of the Pity Party and a good portion of the closing act upstairs, the 8-piece Stars Like Fleas. Here are some photos:

There will be better pictures by the end of the week I swear, but for now you’ll have to deal with my terrible 3 megapixels!
