Back again after an extended blogging layoff because of work and projects! Coming up for air long enough to point you to the latest installment of What I've Been Working On.
Freddy and Francine is an awesome band and friends of robgwilson.com after their music was featured in a short film I edited called Chris And Steve (IMDb). You can check out more about them here and here. In June their song Brownstone Alley was featured on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic as their Top Tune Of The Day, which is only the coolest thing ever. In case you don't live in Los Angeles, KCRW and that show in particular is the best place to find great new music in the city of Los Angeles.
So F&F and I got together and decided to up the ante on their video work online. With the help of my friends Adam Deyoe and Katie Goldschmidt, the three of us got together to shoot a concert at The Mint in Hollywood. Dating back to 1937, the venue has hosted everyone from Stevie Wonder, Willie Dixon, and Ray Charles to more recently Ben Harper, Macy Gray, and The Wallflowers.
These two videos, 8 Pages and Brownstone Alley, were the first two songs from their set, with more to come. Hopefully we'll be working together again soon. They're a pleasure and their music is kickass. Go see them if you get the chance.
