With 'The Disaster Artist,' James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau—an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable—into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy's cult-classic disasterpiece 'The Room' (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), 'The Disaster Artist' is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you're doing.

February 9: Girls In Hawai, Rockhal, 8pm

Four years after their last album 'Everest', Girls In Hawai return with 'Nocturne'. Made in the style of a Jackson Pollock canvas. A record that Antoine and Lionel each wrote separately. Apart from some keywords exchanged to circumscribe the subject: hypnosis, the jungle, Rousseau’s naive paintings too. Targeting the work in a pictorial way avoids infinite discussions, they explain. Unlike Everest, the fruit of a long and painful reflection necessary to any resurrection record, Nocturne almost ‘created itself’.

February 9: Francesco Tristano, Philharmonie, 8pm
