Joel Levinson Brings Film "Boy Band" Home to Little Art


Director and comedy writer Joel Levinson is bringing his film "Boy Band" back home to the Little Art Theatre this month.

Joel, one half of the Levinson Brothers alongside Stephen, dropped by the WYSO studios to talk with Niki Dakota on Excursions about the film, made on location in Dayton. The film centers on a boy band that comes back to the studio to follow up their smash debut album, 16 years after the fact.

Boy Band will be screened at the Little Art Theatre this Saturday, March 2 at 1 PM, followed by a Q&A session with writer/director Joel Levinson. Ticket information and more can be found at LittleArt.com

Born a Hoosier, but only living there in spurts, Niki Dakota spent much of her young life moving around the United States with her archeologist mother. Throughout these years, there was always a ukulele somewhere close at hand. By the time the family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ms. Dakota found herself in pursuit of professional music-making as she headed-up the Alterna-Folk band, Plow On Boy. In the course of her first live radio interview to promote the band, Niki’s keen excitedness manifest itself in extreme chattiness. At the conclusion of the segment, the DJ closed the mic and said, “You need to be in radio."  That was in 1990.
