Our Exclusive Merch with Angel Olsen for Big Time Film Release

(Fri, Jun 17, 22)

Brain Dead Studios Fairfax is honored to host the premiere of Angel Olsen's new short film Big Time, the visual counterpart to her anticipated sixth studio album. The 28 minute film is rich with evocative portrayals of grief and new love amongst Angel’s surrealist dreamscapes. Angels writes, “It is probably the most intimate work I have ever made and shared with the public.” Before writing the album Olsen entered a new relationship, accepted her queerness and lost both of her parents. “Some experiences just make you feel as though you’re five years old, no matter how wise or adult you think you are.” Digging into fresh loss and new love, Olsen used a dream of hers to help structure the poignant film directed by Kimberly Stuckwisch. "Big Time.. poses one central dilemma. ‘What lengths must one go through to let go of the past in order to step out of the darkness and accept one's true self?’ After the screening at Brain Dead Studios Fairfax there will be a Q+A with both Olsen and the director, followed by a set.

In celebration of the release, Brain Dead is excited to offer our exclusive Angel Olsen Big Time collaborative t-shirt. Retailing at $54 the shirt will be available via wearebraindead.com at 10 AM PST on June 17th.
