Last year a slew of actors flew down to Georgia with director Randall Miller to film CBGB, the upcoming movie about the New York City club that launched the careers of seminal punk acts including Patti Smith, the Ramones, Television and the Talking Heads.

Behind the Scenes of 'CBGB'

Over on the CBGB Facebook page, you can check out the cast of characters – which includes Alan Rickman as the club's owner Hilly Kristal – in the film's first poster, and now you can also take an exclusive first look at Malin Akerman as Blondie's Debbie Harry and the Foo Fighters' Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop. No release date has been set for CBGB yet, though it should open sometime this year.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
