lots happening in Oshkosh in the coming months: Dead Weight Movie Premiere, Gilead Media Music Festival and more

Adam Lee Bartlett is a busy man indeed. Not only did he manage to establish an independent record label Gilead Media and consistently put out good records of bands whose music he gratifies heartfully but also now arranged one of the most astounding underground music shows : Gilead Media Music Festival. The show spans around two days featuring likes of Loss, Thou, Ash Borer, Fell Voices, False, Lycus and more. But that starts in the last week of April. In between Adam L. Bartlett along with fellow producer/ director John Pata under the moniker Head Trauma Productions will be premiering the latest effort Dead Weight, a low- cost thriller on big screen.

Dead Weight is a horror and suspense movie filmed last year which focuses on the lassitude yet fanatical journey of Charlie Russell, travelling through the wilderness in the wake of an apocalyptic viral outbreak to reunite with his girlfriend, Samantha, in Wausau. I watched the trailer last year and instantly got excited over the whole thing. So I started to keep track of the movie although there were limited updates posted on the web, nevertheless it was growing in stature. It's a sigh of relief that the movie is finally going to see the day of light although there was no doubt seeing the hard work and extreme dedication of the whole crew. On March 30 and 31st, public primiering will take place at Time Community Theatre, Oshkosh starting from 8 p.m.; the deluxe 2xDVD package will come out in April. The trailer for Dead Weight and some of the wicked performance by the bands featuring on Gilead Media Music Festival are posted below.
