Well, hello there, Solid State. How ya been?
Don't know if you folks have been keeping tabs on our good friends over at Angioplasty Media, but Nick, Paddy and Co. have had a pretty interesting run of posts lately — in addition to picking up the tattered, screen-printed pieces of late, great booking co-op, Tick Tick, with a sparkling string of Monkey House shows.
Specifically, they've begun a series of live music videos shot at Paddy Reagan's studio. The sixth and latest installment — following a nifty turn from indie-folk fave Vandaveer — features our own alt-country rolling stone, Lowell Thompson.
Here's that vid, and when you have a few minutes to spare, head over to Angioplasty and peruse the others. They're pretty rad, if I do say so myself. Also, they've just posted a killer Rough Francis vid from the band's recent Higher Ground show with Mos Def, courtesy of RF bassist Steve Williams (My First Days on Junk, et al.) and his blog, FuckingRightHandMan. Enjoy.
