After rubbing shoulders with Jim Carrey during an extended stay in L.A. and making a cameo in his upcoming film Yes Man, SF electro-rock fashionistas Von Iva are preparing to conquer new ground with a tour that will culminate with three gigs at South by Southwest.
SFS: You spent a couple weeks in L.A. recently. What was going on down there?
BK: Actually, we haven’t talked about it in the press at all, but we are going to be in a Jim Carrey movie called Yes Man that comes out in December. We wrote four songs with Zooey Deschanel and we are going to be in the movie.
SFS: How did you get involved with that?
BK: After we put our album out in August and got home from being on tour, we got a call from the music supervisor from Warner Brothers. He saw our CD at Amoeba in Hollywood, and he liked it and we met with him down in L.A. The next day they called us and told us they wanted us to do the project and stay in L.A. for a month.
SFS: Did you hangout with Jim Carrey, at all?
BK: We only saw him during the two days we were shooting in November. He was pretty funny, as you might imagine.
