While February is technically the shortest month of the year, sometimes it feels like it drags on and on forever. You’ve already survived December and January and are ready for Spring, but February has the unforgivable characteristic of dropping snow on you despite the fact that Punxsutawney Phil swore on his little rodent bible that there were only a few short weeks until springtime and daffodils. Well it’s the last week of this pesky month and IFC is here to help you wile away the hours until spring … or you give up and fly to Austin for SxSW.
Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:
Kurt Cobain would have turned 44 this week. In unrelated news, we’re showing Gus Van Sant’s Last Days at 3:45 p.m. ET. The movie features Michael Pitt as a drug-addled rock star on a path towards self-destruction.
