"Another Day, Another Time" Celebrates Music of Llewyn Davis

New York’s Town Hall hosted “Another Day, Another Time” last night. Part benefit, part movie premiere and part music industry summit, the evening celebrated the music from the forthcoming Coen Brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis and raised money for the National Recording Preservation Foundation.

Inside Llewyn Davis is set in New York’s Greenwich Village in the early 1960s so it makes sense that the film’s producers looked to the current class of indie-folkies for help with both the film’s soundtrack and last night’s benefit performance. Produced by The Coen Brothers, T Bone Burnett and Scott Rudin, “Another Day, Another Time” featured two sets of roots music, with artists offering both a mix of original material and songs from the film. Inside Llewyn Davis actors like John Goodman, Girls star Adam Driver and Carey Mulligan took part in the concert; some actors introduced the evening’s large musical cast while others reprised their musical roles in the film.

The Punch Brothers and the duo of David Rawlings and Gillian Welch served as the evening’s first two acts and returned throughout the night to back the concert’s various players. A slew of both classic and modern folk artists like Marcus Mumford (who helped oversee the film’s soundtrack), original ‘60s folkie Joan Baez, The Avett Brothers, Keb Mo’, The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy and former Old Crow Medicine Show member Willie Watson performed at various points throughout the evening. Punk-Poet Patti Smith and Nashville transplant Jack White also embraced the evening’s hootenanny feel. In one of the show’s most surprising moments, unannounced guest Elvis Costello, Burnett and Driver all took the stage for “Please Mr. Kennedy” a song Justin Timberlake sings in the film (Costello made several jokes about how he was Timberlake’s stand in.) Emerging roots acts like Milk Carton Kids, Secret Sisters and Lake Street Drive were also awarded showcase spots.

Inside Llewyn Davis is set for release on December 6. The soundtrack for the film is scheduled for release on November 12 and features music from Oscar Isaac (who plays Lewis in the film), Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan. In addition to the 12 recordings created especially for the film, the soundtrack will also include an unreleased version of Bob Dylan’s original “Farewell.”
