Given the giant crosses, light shows, and general mayhem that occurs when Justice gets onstage, one can only assume life on the road with these guys sees few dull moments. Directors Romain Gavras and Ed Banger’s resident designer So-Me were so intrigued by what goes on backstage they trained a camera on the Parisian duo 24/7, for three straight weeks during March 2008, and the ensuing footage will be available to the masses come December 9.
As its press release states, Across the Universe "ain't how cool Justice's live show is, but is all about the extraordinary things that can happen when a bunch of frogs get dropped in dreamy America." The DVD will come packaged with a bonus CD that includes recordings of the duo's live sets, along with extra show footage.
A select number of screenings are slated for various U.S. cities at the end of the month, though as of yet, only a New York showing is confirmed, for October 30 at the IFC Center. In the meantime, catch Justice in one of these cities:
10/28 Montreal, QC - Metropolis
10/29 Toronto, ON - Circa
10/30 New York, NY - Webster Hall
10/31 Los Angeles, CA - Hard Festival
