We shot this in 90 minutes as the sun sunk below the horizon. There were new friends and an old friend who was about to leave us for the greener pastures of Alaska. There were sandwiches and an impromptu picnic. There were photos and undocumented dance parties.
We get a lot of shit about being fucking hipsters but a lot of love about what fun it all looked like. I’m not convinced we’re fucking hipsters but I can assure you it was just as much fun as it looked.
“90 minutes of sunset, then off to your show down the street. You in?”
This was our pitch to Phoenix before a show they had in New York. We had a contact at Glass Records, their label. We stayed up all night burning dvds. We showed up with said dvd. We thought we were just going to drop it off with the receptionist. No, no, Daniel Glass, the man himself came to get the dvd, and wanted to watch it immediately!
So there we were, with a roomful of employees, a tv and our dvd. They all knew our video and loved it. They loved the pitch. Daniel Glass said he would see what he could do and then told us to keep in touch.
Yes, we screamed like we were on a roller coaster when we got on the elevator.
