I know, I know, this is insane. Crooked Coast debuting their new video in a movie theater tomorrow night? A gala red carpet event with paparazzi and The Real Cape team doing interviews and covering the madness? And wait Crooked Coast is going to perform live after the video? Oh and all this takes place at a movie theater that has beer? It all sounds like, like a… like a dream.
Well it isn’t a dream, this is very real and it is going to be more fun than humans should be allowed to have. The fun police are literally running for the hills so they don’t get hit by any of the shrapnel emanating from how much of a blast this is going to be.
It happens tomorrow night at 9 p.m. but get there early because I guarantee it’ll be at capacity well before then. Plus you’ll get to do some spins and answer a few questions on the red carpet beforehand.
Here is the official press release…
“This is too big for youtube.
Here at Crooked Coast, we always want to push it. Whether it’s bringing a passionate live performance to the stage or crafting a tight, versatile, heartfelt album in the studio. If you don’t run, you rust. Thank you for running with us thus far. Where are we headed now?
Music videos are something we all love. The same way you can bounce favorite songs around, you can also debate greatest music videos. Thriller and November Rain showed us music videos could be as memorable as a great song. They elevated the art form. Advances in technology have opened the floodgates. Artists with a camera and guerilla hustle can bring their vision to the world. There was never a better time for big ideas and small budgets.
Our friend Nicholas Santos is a fiercely talented young filmmaker. He is originally from Falmouth and now resides in NYC. We shot two previous videos with him, ‘Gone Without You’ and ‘Ritalin.’ We love the way he works. He is quiet and thoughtful but at the same time pushed us to try different things, taking our visions to new places.
When the time came to shoot a new music video to support our album Thanks for the Memories, we chose the song ‘Loose Tooth.’ The song is both happy and sad. The theme deals with death and the unknown after, the heartache of being human, the hints of things beyond our understanding and the joy of being with the people you love.
The shoot took place over two days last January. It was cold, raining, windy and a lot of fun. The first day was a sixteen-hour shoot and the second we shot for twelve. Crooked Coast gets damn near militant when it comes to shooting videos. We locked in like Voltron and got tons of amazing footage. Our friends and our ladies helped out acting in the video. We had connections with some caretakers that secured amazing (secret) locations.
The end result is stunning landscapes, torches, chases, animal costumes, fire, a synchronized dance routine and more. We are really proud of this production. Watching the footage we said, “This is too big for youtube, of course it will end up there eventually but the release deserves something more.”
Then it hit us; a bigger vision needs a bigger screen. We reached out to the Falmouth Cinema Pub and they agreed to host us.
Now we had the big vision and the big screen but we needed to make sure it was a big event. Reaching out to therealcape.com made sense. They are a local outfit that is working hard to be creative and buck the conception of what it means to be “Cape Cod.” We found kindred spirits in them and decided to partner up for the premier party.
Wednesday, May 28th we will unveil Loose Tooth. The Real Cape team will be shooting red carpet style interviews outside so make sure you look good. Then at 9 pm we will perform live, a first for the Cinema Pub. After the live performance we will premier the video. The event is all ages. There is a $5 cover charge.
You can watch the video on your phone later but the first time; go big.”Facebook: The Real Cape
