Straight to Video: Ohio Music Video Comp #1: Columbus
4/18/2012 @ Spectacle Theater, Brooklyn 8PM
A screening program of live performance footage, music videos, and cable access appearances with bands from the underground music scene in Columbus, Ohio. Featuring bands/artists such as: V̶-̶3̶, Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, True Believers, Mike Rep+the Quotas, J̶i̶m̶ ̶S̶h̶e̶p̶a̶r̶d̶, Tommy Jay, Nudge Squidfish, Gaunt, Screaming Urge, Scrawl, Gibson Brothers, New Bomb Turks, as well as more recent bands, including: Times New Viking, Psychedelic Horseshit, Sword Heaven, and Unholy 2.
The footage comes from recently digitized VHS tapes, solicited in hopes of creating a centralized collection of moving image material to construct an archive providing a rich portrait of Columbus’ underground music scene. This archive is a work in progress, with content being added all the time, as it becomes available. Columbus will be the first focal point, with Dayton following and (hopefully) Cleveland after that.
