The new Elliott Smith documentary “Heaven Adores You” has been screening around San Francisco, California and Toronto Canada. There are a couple dates finally coming to the East Coast in Washington DC in June. I’m really excited about this because the people involved actually knew Elliott. This is certainly something to check out.
Heaven Adores You is an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith (1969-2003). By threading the music of Elliott Smith through the dense, yet often isolating landscapes of the three major cities he lived in — Portland, New York City, Los Angeles — Heaven Adores You presents a visual journey and an earnest review of the singer’s prolific songwriting and the impact it continues to have on fans, friends, and fellow musicians.
