Day 30 – “Hey Hey” by The Graves

August 8, 2011 1 comment

And if you sing along with us, better give it all you’ve got!

And with this video, we come to the end of our 30 day journey. I hope you had as much fun watching these videos as we did making them. The amount of support and talent that has come out of this project is overwhelming.

At first we had some difficulty deciding what to do for this band that’s based way out West. Eventually I came up with this. This song is quite an anthem and I figured it would be a nice way to bring all of our artists together. Please enjoy “Hey Hey” by The Graves.

Once again, I’d like to thank all the artists and filmmakers who participated in this project.

Video #9 (Part One) – “Call It Quits” by Tri-State Conspiracy

We’ve been delaying this reveal for a while but I suppose it’s about time we welcome the ultra talented, ultra unique, only swing/psychobilly/punk/whatever they are band from our area, Tri-State Conspiracy (Jeff Paris, Tom Lawlor, Steve Kerr, Callum Benepe, Anton Alexeev, Craig Baratta, Fernando Leon, Kevin Mechella). First time I heard these guys (and saw them live) was at CBGB’s last ska show ever and I was hooked. Definitely a band to see live – they always have crazy opening acts and have an energy most rock and *”punk” shows/bands today can only dream of having.

Anyway, here’s the first in a series of videos from their live show at Bowery Poetry Club earlier this month. Stay tuned for more videos from the show AND an upcoming DVD of the full set. Directed/edited by David Dubuc, shot by Dave, Spencer Shangkuan, and myself. Many thanks to Jeff and the rest of the guys for hooking us up w/ the show/venue/opportunity.

*it’s in quotes b/c let’s face it, most people who call themselves “punk” today are usually just not
