Wearing what has become his uniform of the day, Neil Young made a surprise appearance on Friday, March 19 at SXSW in Austin, Texas.

The singer-songwriter attended a special screening of his 1982 movie Human Highway at the Paramount Theatre and participated in a Q&A session after the film.
According to NME News, Young is quoted as saying about the film: “It has a life of it’s own. It refuses to die – we tried to kill it a couple of times,” said Young of the surreal movie, which was shown in a newly re-cut and re-mastered format. “It was never satisfying to look at, because I knew there was more than what we were seeing… I always wanted to make it what it could be.”
He wore a black hat, black leather jacket over a baggy black T-shirt, black pants, and what looks like a Native American medicine bag around his neck.
Of the band Devo, which appeared in the movie, Young said:

“They’re geniuses – they had something that was totally unique,” said Young yesterday. “When I met them I freaked out.”
Speaking about his work outside of music, he commented: “You’ve got to do other things, because just music is not enough.” He added that the new version of the movie, which includes previously unseen footage, will be touring film festivals throughout the year, before getting a DVD release. “I like people to look at it in the theatre – I like people to look at it with other people. I’m not a fan of the solitary art. I like to hear people react.”

Young to attend Human Highway screening at SXSW

Neil Young in Human HighwayNeil Young will be in Austin, Texas on Thursday, March 19 to attend a screening of his 1982 movie “Human Highway.”

According to Noise 11, “Human Highway” will screen at the Paramount on Congress at 5 p.m. in Austin and it will be followed by a Q & A session with Young himself.

Young starred in and co-directed with his friend Dean Stockwell the alternative-comedy, bizarre, eclectic movie that featured appearances by Young, Stockwell, Devo and Randy Hopper. In the movie Young sings “Hey, Hey, My, My” with Devo.

60s fold singer David Blue also made an appearance in the movie. He died shortly after in 1982.

The movie received poor reviews and was once released on VHS video but has not resurfaced yet on DVD or Blue-Ray.

(Maybe it will be on PONO)

Young plays Lionel Switch, a nerdy gas station attendant who dreams of being a rock star.
