music monday: inside llewyn davis

there is an amazing little theatre in denver called “the mayan theatre.” it was built in 1930 and boasts incredible architecture, a bar and a small selection of documentaries and indie films. i saw the coen brothers’ “inside llewyn davis” there this past week and was mesmerized by the story and music. heartbreaking, honest and raw, the music sets the tone of the film, telling the story of a struggling folk musician in Greenwich Village in 1961. the film begins with llewyn davis (oscar isaac) playing “hang me, oh hang me” in a little dive bar. it was so mesmerizing that we were tempted to clap. the entire soundtrack is worth checking out.
