The work of a Leavenworth poet and a Wenatchee-born filmmaker will hit the big screen at the Seatttle International Film Festival next week. Steve Brown will present his first feature film, “Spark: A Burning Man Story, ” about a radical art and community-building event in the Nevada desert every August. The film captures the behind-the-scenes struggle as organizers try to balance their guiding principals with Burning Man’s booming popularity. Directed and produced by Brown, the film was a selection of the South By Southwest Film Festival and Ashland Independent Film Festival this year.
It’s not the kind of thing you’d expect to hear from a guy whose public persona includes a mohawk, black jeans, chains and leather cuffs:“I love opera,” Will Moore says. “The worlds aren’t so different. They both come from such a natural place ... it’s less focused on technique and more on your ability to just let go.” Moore is the lead singer of The Adarna, a rising Seattle rock band that’s headed for Leavenworth this weekend. Realistically, the band could have run with any musical genre when they formed two years ago. Their lead guitarist, Andrea Jasek, sometimes slips into a Van Halen solo — a nod to her ’80s hair-metal roots. They picked up a talented jazz drummer from New York via Craigslist, and their bassist — a punk-influenced spray-paint artist — in a Harley Davidson shop.
