Glenn Mercer of The Feelies and director Jonathan Demme did me the honor of talking to me about the special bond between the band and the filmmaker ahead of Sunday’s special screening of Demme’s cult classic movie “Something Wild,” which features The Feelies as a high school reunion band.

Here’s how it’s promoted on the front page of the Thursday edition of The Journal News of White Plains, N.Y.:
The movie is being screened at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday as part of “Something Wild: The Films of Jonathan Demme,” a festival honoring the Rockland County-based director at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, N.Y.
The Sunday show is going to be extra special, though, because The Feelies, a band that’s a special favorite of Demme’s, will be playing a set after the movie. It should be a wild evening.
Tickets for the special Sunday show are $30 for nonmembers, and are available online here. More information and directions to the Jacob Burns Film Center, 364 Manville Rd., Pleasantville, tap or click here.
