Nichols lands in Cannes' 'Critics' Week'

'Take Shelter' is the only American feature film with the distinction


Start practicing your best air guitar, y'all. The Times is looking for your best cover/karaoke/dance interpretation/music video treatment of a Foo Fighters song. In exchange, we've got a handful of tickets to the band's May 18 concert with Motorhead at Verizon Arena.

(And hey, rappers and producers — their catalog is ripe for the sampling.)

We'll accept submissions, in just about any digital form — YouTube, Vimeo, Soundcloud, mp3 — through April 30. From May 1-7, we'll put all the entries online and ask our readers to vote for their favorite.

Free tickets to Foo Fighters/Motorhead: How can you pass that up?

"Take Shelter," Little Rock-born filmmaker Jeff Nichols' follow-up to "Shotgun Stories," is riding its success at Sundance to an enviable spot in Cannes' "Critics' Week" lineup as one of only seven feature films chosen and the only American film to hold the distinction. "Critics' Week" runs May 12-20.

"Get Later," Lenny Bryan's follow-up to the 2009 recording "The Sound of Inevitability," is the former Ho-Hum frontman's return to epic, experimental bedroom pop under the Mama handle and it's available, digitally, via iTunes and Amazon. Or if you're the type that digs tangibility, Max Recordings is offering a limited run of 100 CDs in LP sleeve jackets.
