This Wednesday, October 22nd, come check out the Northwest Film Forum’s Videoasis. The eve will feature a multimedia showcase of music videos from local rock royalty, including the likes of King Dude, Chastity Belt, Grave Babies, Constant Lovers, Psychic Rites, Haunted Horses and many more. KEXP’s Larry Rose will offer some tunes too. For the first installment, swing through as best buds and curators Sharlese Metcalf, KEXP and Bobby McHugh, World Famous share their hand-picked collection of their super fave videos to sing along and dance to.
Here’s a mini scoop from Sharlese of what Videoasis is all about. Can’t wait to get a bigger scoop Wednesday night!
Why are music videos relevant to underground music?
Sharlese Metcalf: Music videos, especially for underground bands, are a point where collaboration happens with underground filmmakers. They’re mutually beneficial and really cool. This is a tool to help promo everyone.
It builds an audience not only for the filmmaker, but gives a chance for the band to be presented in a visual fashion, therefore taking their music to a different artistic level.
You two have been quite the BFF duo for a while now. Can you share with us your adventure aesthetic and how it ties in with Videoasis?
SM: Bobby and I are an adventure. We’re great friends and Videoasis is an example of our creative minds! We’re quite honored to be able to do something like this!
What’s in store for us at Videoasis?
SM: Videoasis is a visually explorative insider’s look into the Pacific Northwest. Expect a lot of fun and great surprises. It’ll be like watching a really fucking cool music video movie.
