Pilot Whale’s “Tax Dance” video hits the interwebs

August 17, 2009


We loves us some Pilot Whale. We love his songs, his antics and his large assortment of costumes. J.R. has given us another gift…a video for famed song “Tax Dance.” Click through for linksies to watch the video.


Time to rock onscreen: Rock On Music Video Competition screening is TONIGHT

August 17, 2009

rockonmusicvideocompIf you stopped paying attention to MTV about the time it traded Simon Rex for Carson Daly (a Stihl-to-Craftsman upgrade in the world of tooldom), let the music video medium suck you back in tonight. Moxie Cinema is screening the competing videos in the Rock On Music Video Competition, where local filmmakers teamed up with local bands to produce videos for songs. It’s the last chance to catch the videos on Moxie’s big screen and it starts at 7 p.m. Also worth noting: One representative from each video team is required by rule to be at the screenings, so if you like what you see you’ll be able to tell them in person. With videos made for Bender, The Black Raven Creative, Defected, The Love Breakers, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, STRIP and Worba, there should be an enticing variety of videos to see. Tickets for this and all of Moxie’s other Monday shows are $6. Consider it the music video artform’s “hello again,” with the added incentive of featuring bands you’ve supported in your music scene… and with no VJs anywhere in sight.

The Top Five Dirty Blondes Videos of All Time, Part 4

August 6, 2009

We’re a little more than 24 hours from the final Dirty Blondes show ever, and that means we’re down (up?) to the fourth installment of singer Ranald Ives Cummings III‘s weeklong countdown of the band’s best video moments. What ridiculous, semi-nude and possibly cross-dressing mischief lies ahead? See after the break.

So we’re pretty proud that we are finally getting to be able to help present shows. That’s a big step for TheFourFour and hopefully just the beginning. Well, being that we have literally around 20+ gigs of pics and vids to upload, we’ve had A LOT of requests that we posts the pics and vids form the Future Leaders of the World show last Thursday, July 23 at the Outland Ballroom. Click on through and see what I was able to upload on my lunch break. Trust us we have A TON more to share…and time permitting, we’ll have a tons of awesome vids to share over the weekend. Click though to check these out…


Psssst! New video: Bottlefish goes to The Double Deuce. Pass it on.

July 27, 2009

It likely won’t be on The Internets long, since it violates more copyright laws than Vanilla Ice, but this video is too good not to pass along for your entertainment. The boys in local Americana/roots rock group Bottlefish pieced together a tongue-in-cheeck mashup music video using their song “Sleepwalking” and an assortment of clips from the ’80s Patrick Swayze classic Roadhouse, which, along with The Outsiders, is one of the few movies that will allow us to use the phrase “Patrick Swayze classic.” It’s a hilarious intro to the band’s show this Friday at Lindberg’s with HeartPunch, and, well, it has a cameo by a monster truck. Who could say no? Check out one of the year’s best local songs in a whole new light while you still can:

I want my… local music videos?!

June 16, 2009
That ain't workin'... that's the way you do it... money for nothin' and your chicks for free.

That ain't workin'... that's the way you do it... money for nothin' and your chicks for free.

There was a time, when Music Television (aka MTV) launched, when the cable network gave us moving-picture eye candy such as this, this and this. Now all it can give us is Carson Daly and Lauren Conrad… diminishing returns, to say the least. As is often the case, when the big-hat corporate types fall astray the good stuff comes from their determined local and regional counterparts. The same is about to be true for music videos. Get ready for a fun contest and potentially more. Read on after the break.


Never Shout Never deemed “Buzzworthy”

Joplin-based songwriter Christofer Drew, aka Never Shout Never, has been the subject of considerable local buzz in recent months. Nationwide touring, album recording and, most recently, a record/label deal with Warner Brothers has kept Drew, all of 19, on the tips of many tongues. Now, apparently, he has landed on that of MTV, as well. Never Shout Never was spotlighted yesterday on the cable “music network” with a post and video interview on its Buzzworthy blog. Of course, “Buzzworthy” is MTV’s series of artists the network believes you should keep an eye on for big things in the near future, sort of an evolution of its “Buzz Bin” from the ’80s, ’90s and early ’00s.

The interview covers five questions, and it gives the viewer a pretty good idea of Drew’s personality. You can watch the whole thing (run time 3:39 and totally work-safe) by clicking on these funny-colored words. Of course, the interview has almost nothing to do with Never Shout Never’s music (ah… “Music Television”…), so to learn more about the artist through his chosen medium give a listen by clicking here.

Billy Mays, eat your heart out

May 21, 2009

To mark the occasion of The Bootheel, The Cropdusters and By Hook Or Crook playing together in Springfield and Joplin on back-to-back nights–an event the bands are calling “The Two-Day Three-Way”–the members of The Cropdusters and The Bootheel wanted to collaborate and make something special for sale at the Outland Ballroom (Springfield) and Blackthorn Pizza (Joplin) concerts only… why not barbecue sauce? It is Memorial Day weekend, after all. When it came to pitching the new product, of course, the job could fall on no other shoulders than Bootheel drummer Warren Sandwell. We’ll let the hilarious (and not safe for work) results speak for themselves:

HeartPunch on The YouTubes

April 20, 2009

If you missed Yankton Sothern’s one-night-only supergroup HeartPunch, we have two pieces of good news for you:

1. The show Friday night at The High Life Live Martini Lounge went over so well there’s talk of another performance.

2. Sothern’s bandmate Kelly Robertson from Bottlefish taped the show and put part of it on YouTube. Rather than make you click a bunch to get to it, though, we’re giving you the straight feed:

Also in the vid you’ll see HeartPunch’s other members: Steve Newman (guitar), Lou Whitney (bass) and Ritchie Allen (drums). Enjoy.

Storyline prepares debut EP

April 1, 2009


We’ve had Storyline‘s demo for at least a couple of months now, and it sounds polished enough (far more than most demos) that we often forget that it is just a three-song demo. The band, however, does not forget, and the group formerly known as One Star Story has been hard at work in the studio rounding out additional tracks to make a full-fledged recording they can sell. Sell it they will, and you can find more information–including where and how to get it–and a brief promo vid after the break.


FourFourTV @ SXSW: Part 1

March 26, 2009


As we said before, the purpose of the roadtrip to Austin for South By Southwest was to cover Springfield’s bands at one of America’s largest and most visible music festivals. It took a little time (this stuff doesn’t edit in 10 minutes, or even an hour), but we’re now proud to present Part 1 of the trip, covering local indie-rock group Ilijah‘s performance on Thursday. You’ll find it after the break, and stay tuned for Parts 2 and 3.

March 11, 2009

So just hitting the bulletin board on Myspace and saw two posts really close to eachother by locals talking about new videos they’ve posted. Jeremy Larson posted a new in-studio vid and Can’t Be Too Jumpy posted a fan vid of them performing live. Click-thru to check’em out.


Snooze Button Special: The Cropdusters’ performance from Ozarks Fox in the Morning

February 27, 2009

7 a.m. is kind of a pain; we know that as well as you do. While many of us may not have been ready to roll at that hour, The Cropdusters were, tearing through renditions of “Medicate Me” and “55 South” this morning on the KSFX morning show Ozarks Fox in the Morning. If you missed the performance, click the link below to go to videos for both songs.


Videos From Valentine’s Day (Mudvayne, Clutch, Nonpoint, Red Fang)

February 19, 2009

My internets are being just aaaweeeesome and this is taking for-ev-er, but steady and slow wins the race I guess. I’ve been uploading the videos from last Saturday to our YouTube. We’ve got a bunch of videos including a bunch from Mudvayne including “World So Cold,” “Determined,” “Happy,” “Nothing To Gein,” “Do What You Do,” “Dig,” and “Death Blooms.” We also have Clutch performing “Electric Worry,” and Nonpoint performing “What A Day.” Also nabbed a video of Red Fang as they were closing their set. They were awesome. Definately look for them in the future. I’m hoping to get the pics up by tomorrow night so stay tuned.
