BDCWire

“The Big Lebowski.” It’s a stoner comedy, a western, a crime drama and above all else: a cult film. The epic tale of Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski and his bowling buddies has been a fan favorite since its release in 1998, and Coolidge Corner Theatre, the Brookline movie house, has screened it annually since 2003.

Friday’s mellow acoustics progressively transformed into mountains of feedback and attack-style rock come Sunday. Some of the best sets of the weekend were played by seasoned vets to the likes of Modest Mouse, Built To Spill, and Death Cab for Cutie, while relative newcomers like Magic Man, Warpaint, and The Head and the Heart.
