Man, it just feels like yesterday when we mentioned that our buddy Goh Nakamura had his music video “Embarcadero Blues” reach one million views on YouTube. (Okay, it’s been three years, but who’s counting?) One self-released album later and it looks like Goh is ready to show off his new project: an indie film called Surrogate Valentine — yes, it’s based off of one of his songs — directed by Dave Boyle where he plays a struggling indie musician named, aptly, Goh Nakamura. (For those not quite comfortable: it’s totally okay in indie movie world to have characters with the same name as yours, yet have the movie not be a documentary.)
The movie made its debut at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin to great reviews, and proceeded to show across the country for various film festivals; now you can get his Limited Edition DVD + Digital Download (Including Soundtrack) ($25) on Amazon today. The purchase also includes a download code to get the entire soundtrack as well.
