Watch: Trailer for Sci-Fi Folk Music Comedy 'History of Future Folk'
No, we're not high. This is actually a movie about a folk music duo, aliens, action and romance. The History of Future Folk is an indie about two aliens (Nils d'Aulaire, Jay Klaitz) from a planet called Hondo who came to our planet and wipe out civilization, but our music changed their mind. Now with their Devo-inspired look and catchy folk tunes, they're an upstart musical duo just trying to get by on Earth. But the rest of Hondo is still hellbent on taking over Earth, and it's up to this strange team to stop them. This first trailer is funny, charming, and wholly original, and we'll be seeking out the film this summer. Watch!
J. Anderson Mitchell & Jeremy Kipp Walker's The History of Future Folk, originally from Apple:
The citizens of the planet Hondo have sent General Trius (Nils d'Aulaire) to find a new home on Earth and wipe out the current inhabitants in the process. But when he lands on Earth, he's entranced by a strange and mystical human invention: music. He abandons his mission, starts a family, and launches a bluegrass act in a tiny Brooklyn bar, later joined by a bumbling assassin named Kevin (Jay Klaitz) who was supposed to get the mission back on track. Now Hondo is still coming for Earth, and only Future Folk can save us. J. Anderson Mitchell & Jeremy Kipp Walker direct The History of Future Folk in limited theaters May 31st.
Safe to say there is some ripping off of Flight of the Conchords in this?

Also see Spielberg's "Amazing Stories" for episode in which aliens come to earth because they've been monitoring and loving our 1950s comedians for years. They find Milton Berle.
Likes bluegrass, also jokes on May 8, 2013
