Last month's 208 Video Show, an exhibition of local music videos that played at Neurolux for First Thursday, will be reprised for First Thursday tonight at The Record Exchange, featuring music videos from more than 25 local artists, as well as an instore performance from First Borns, whose video for Gene
bought won the audience choice competition by receiving the most votes, which were available to be purchased for $1 apiece. Gene's director Natasha Louie will be on hand to take all your burning questions.
The event will also feature the most time-honored tactic to make people care about local music they might otherwise ignore: free beer.
Other local notables with videos in the show include Storie Grubb and the Holy Wars, Wolvserpent, Jumping Sharks, Finn Riggins and more.
The event's organizer, Nancy Spittle, has also done her best to make sure that every band with a video in the show will also have music available for purchase at The Record Exchange.
One CD that will be available tonight is a freshly released new compilation of live performances from The Evil Wine Show, which airs semi-regularly online and at Red Room, hosted by Red Room booker Wes Malvini and local musician Dustin Jones.
Evil Wine Presents: Volume One features 16 live tracks from acts as local and unknown as Sword of a Bad Speller and as touring and semi-famous as Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job's David Liebe Hart.
The compilation was first released at the Evil Wine Carnival over the weekend and will be availble locally at The Record Exchange, Hot Dog Sandwich Headquarters and at Evil Wine Presents events.
Today's 208 Music Video Show redux goes down at 5 p.m., with First Borns hitting the stage at 6 p.m. The event is free and all-ages.
