Navigating Downtown can be tricky enough without running into an unexpected street closure. We'll try to help you out, posting notices from film shoots that include full street closures.

Grand Avenue will be closed from 2nd to 5th most of the weekend as HSI Productions shoots what appears to be a music video under the production name 'Kylie.'

The closure will start at 4am on Saturday, May 8, and run continuously until 11pm on Sunday, May 9. The one block of 3rd street atop Bunker Hill will also be closed over the same period.

HSI is big-time in the music video and commercial world, with a slate of directors that includes David LaChapelle, Brett Ratner and Hype Williams.

The shoot is listed with the production name 'Kylie.' Australian singer Kylie Minogue is getting set to debut a new album, but nothing in the notice says for sure who will be on-stage on Grand.

DESCRIPTION OF SCENE: Atmospheric smoke effects. Driving scenes. Driving shots. Equipment on sidewalk, in curb lane & across the street. Exterior dialogue. Exterior performance and playback. Handheld equipment. Occasional traffic and pedestrian control. Wetting of street and wind effects. Green screen in streets. Trucks & equipment parked overnight. Scaffolding in street. Performance stage in street. Talent on mechanical rig hanging from stage. Condos, cranes, prop banners & signs. Beebe light/nite, camera cars, condor, generator, crane, picture vehicles, & scissor lifts.
