JukeBoxGraduate turned us on to U2log.com and an interesting post that has the story on U2 filming in our neighborhood last week…
U2 were in New York City’s lower east side Thursday afternoon at a small club called The Slipper Room to film a video for “Tower of Song” with its songwriter, Leonard Cohen. The legendary poet/songwriter from Montreal arrived fashionably late to the video shoot with Larry Mullen and Paul McGuinness. The footage will be included in a documentary on Cohen, directed by Lian Lunson.
more great photos and the full scoop on U2log.com. with all the film production crap the area takes, it’s cool to see Bono stepping out, shaking hands and talking to people in the ‘hood.
