Though the news of a celebration concert for Inside Llewyn Davis was certainly exciting, it came with a fair amount of disappointment to those that would be unable to attend the one night only concert in NYC. Now a saving grace has appeared, as Showtime has announced that it will air the benefit concert “Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis” on December 13th for those that can’t be in attendance. Produced by writers/directors Joel and Ethan Coen, legendary music producer T Bone Burnett, and producer Scott Rudin, the concert benefits the National Recording Preservation Foundation.
The sure-to-be-fantastic event will feature performances by The Avett Brothers, Marcus Mumford, Jack White, Conor Oberst, Patti Smith, Colin Meloy, Milk Carton Kids, and many more, including Inside Llewyn Davis stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, and Stark Sands. The concert takes place on September 29th and Inside Llewyn Davis opens in theaters on December 6th. Hit the jump for the press release.

INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS, written and directed by Academy Award® winners Joel and Ethan Coen, was produced by Scott Rudin and Joel and Ethan Coen. The film stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, and Justin Timberlake. INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS recently won the Grand Prix at the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival, and will also screen at this year’s New York Film Festival on September 28. The film, which will be distributed by CBS Films in the U.S., begins its theatrical run on December 6.
INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles — some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the baskethouses of the Village to an empty Chicago club — on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul — and back again.
Brimming with music performed by Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan (as Llewyn’s married Village friends), as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS — in the tradition of O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? — is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place. An epic on an intimate scale, it represents the Coen Brothers’ fourth collaboration with multiple-Grammy and Academy Award-winning music producer T Bone Burnett. Marcus Mumford is associate music producer.
Nonesuch Records releases the soundtrack to INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS on Tuesday, November 12, 2013. Produced by T Bone Burnett, Joel Coen, and Ethan Coen, with Grammy® Award winner Marcus Mumford as its associate producer, the album features 12 new recordings created especially for the film and soundtrack. Also included is a never-before-released recording of Bob Dylan performing his song “Farewell,” which was originally recorded during the sessions for his album The Times They Are A-Changin’, and is available exclusively on this soundtrack.
