Todd Haynes gets ‘Unstaged’

Director to helm My Morning Jacket concert for YouTube/Vevo series

Todd Haynes is the latest name director to helm a YouTube/Vevo “Unstaged” concert: He will oversee a live Webcast of My Morning Jacket’s May 31 date at the Palace Theatre in Louisville.

Pairing of Terry Gilliam and Arcade Fire inaugurated the live concert series last year. Since then, Spike Lee has directed an “Unstaged” event by John Legend, while David Lynch teamed with Duran Duran.

Haynes, who is fresh off HBO’s mini-series “Mildred Pierce,” may be the most music-savvy filmmaker to undertake a gig with the American Express-sponsored series.

His suppressed 1988 film “Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story” retold the late Carpenters singer’s story employing Barbie dolls. His 1998 feature “Velvet Goldmine” was set in the ’70s glam scene, while 2007’s “I’m Not There” was an impressionistic gloss on Bob Dylan’s career. He has also directed videos for Sonic Youth.

“Unstaged” date coincides with the release of My Morning Jacket’s new ATO Records album “Circuital.” Kentucky band’s lead vocalist Jim James did a featured turn in “I’m Not There,” singing Dylan’s “Goin’ to Acapulco.”
