Broken Social Scene Prep Film Following Reunion Show

Somewhere between laying down tracks for their new album, promoting the book that chronicles their history and hitting the summer festival circuit, Broken Social Scene found time to reunite in full on stage Saturday night, at a free concert at Toronto's Harbourfront Centre.

Leslie Feist, who also recently performed a few dates with Wilco, including Late Night with David Letterman on Tuesday night, joined bandmates Emily Haines, Amy Millan, Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Andrew Whiteman and Justin Peroff on stage July 11 for a rare large-scale reunion.

As if a book, LP and tour schedule weren't enough to keep BSS busy, they are also starring in an upcoming feature film, This Movie Is Broken, for which producer Bruce McDonald is asking Toronto residents to contribute footage of their neighborhoods and daily activities to serve as an authentic backdrop for the band's story.

If your footage is selected to be included in the film, McDonald will return the favor with an invitation to a private screening, your name in the credits and "many other great, exclusive prizes." OK, but will there be tacos?

The group has been involved in film before, when Kevin Drew decided to create a short starring Feist titled On the Waterfront.

Concert attendees from the Saturday night show captured a lot of live footage, available on YouTube.
