  • Second-A-Day Video Concept Used by @SavetheChildren to Great Effect

    / Comments (0)

    Very powerful piece employing a bit of relativity in order to show what would happen over the course of a year if war hit the UK. It's not that difficult to translate the idea over to the US and it's all in the name of raising awareness for children in Syria (and elsewhere) who are currently experiencing every day like this.

  • Kegs With Legs #12 @TOKYbd Recap

    / Comments (5)

    In what was easily one of the top Kegs With Legs yet, TOKY brought the mardi gras madness to the creative masses last Thursday evening. Live music, good food, fortune telling and plenty of booze flowed freely thru the hallways of their midtown headquarters.

    If you weren't able to make it, take a look-see thru some of the mugshots from the night; there was heavy police presence on hand and just about everyone got booked and locked-in the drunk tank over night to dry out.

  • #STL Music Video Spotlight: "Unrehearsed 2" feat. Briana Pickens & Phil Hsu - @KuumbaTV

    / Comments (0)

    We're going to start finishing out each week (once again) with a locally produced music video of a local band or act. It's important to us to keep in touch with what's going on in the local music world and we'll do our best to find only the absolute cream of the crop pieces, musically and visually.

    This week we have a beautiful and talented improvisational video from Kuumba TV. We'll talk more about Kuumba next week but for now, enjoy this video.

    “Unrehearsed” is Kuumba’s collaborations series that features a dancer and musician–whose styles and instruments aren’t traditionally complimentary–improvising together. The project is essentially about instinct, impulse, and inspiration between strangers. The two artists meet on location and are then asked to perform together on the spot.

    For our second episode, we had electric violinist and Washington University senior Phil Hsu improvise a backing track for dancer and fellow senior Briana Pickens.
