“We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all.”
That iconic quote from ’80s teen classic The Breakfast Club will now be accompanied by a live score by Jack Antonoff of Bleachers at LACMA, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday. The event will take place on April 1 as part of LACMA’s Bring the Noise series, where they get musicians to select a classic flick to re-score. Previous interpretations included Yacht scoring the movie Alien and Seth Bogart of Hunx and His Punx scoring Welcome to the Dollhouse. Antonoff doing The Breakfast Club is the highest profile entry to the series to date.
Antonoff told the Times what inspired him to score the film:
“I chose The Breakfast Club because I think about that film often when I write. There are certain films and feelings that remind me of where I’m from. “I grew up in suburban New Jersey in a similar state of strange boredom as ‘The Breakfast Club.’ I constantly thought about getting out, and that feeling is so present in this film,” he added. “A lot of my world now is looking back at that time period from different vantage points.”
Tickets will first be made available to Film Independent members, and general public tickets sales will begin at 12 PM Pacific Time on March 23. Tickets are priced between $20.00 and $30.00.
