Calling all bands and fans: Streight Angular Want You For Their Music Video "Everyone is Syncopated"!

Streight Angular

Streight Angular is filming their music video for the single "Everyone Is Syncopated" Saturday, February 26 at the Out of the Blue Gallery in Cambridge.

It's a collaborative art project that they want everyone to participate in by bringing personal devices that record video (cell phones, digital cameras, etc) to film it themselves and that footage will be used as part of the video. They want to do special effects with it all, so if you are going to bring a camera, the band asks that you RSVP here.

They also ask that you bring props like stupid stuffed animals and blow up dolls and toy instruments or whatever you have lying around that's cool and weird. That, also includes posters of N'Sync, they want it to be that ridiculous.

They also want to get as many local Boston bands in the video as possible. All participants will get credit in the credits reel as extras and camera people (if you help out with the recording).

The shoot begins at noon, but they ask that everyone get there for 11:30.

Bella's Bartok

This may be one of the most eclectic line-ups to ever grace the stage at O'Brien's.

First up is Crewshall. Self-described as: "Boston's hottest new band playing reggae, hip-hop, and latin riddims," they'll be taking the stage tonight at 9:30. At 10:30, is Bella's Bartok, a 10-piece intensely energetic band, they blend eastern European folk influences with gypsy punk. Headlining the show at 11:30 is 28 Degrees Taurus, the ambient psych-rock band known for their unique asian-folk melodies on guitar, chilling vocals, and their love of jagermeister.

So, if you find yourself in the mood for hip hop riddims, gypsy rock, and psychedelia, or for a night of energetic fun, get yourself over to O'briens.

Invictus Picks -- Cooling Towers -- "Bodies"


Have you heard Cooling Towers? No? Well, neither had I until recently, but hey thats what makes finding a cool band, cool. "Bodies" is a clever tune worth checking out.

Cooling Towers

Adam Bouchard, lead vocalist of Cooling Towers, says that the band's influences are Ian Brown (former lead singer of the seminal English alt-rock band The Stone Roses), Gavin Friday (Virgin Prunes), Sultans of Ping, and Babybird. "Beauty Pill, too," says Bouchard. "I love the band Beauty Pill."

Cooling Towers next show is Saturday, February 26 at Union Station in Northampton.
