This is something I didn't have anything to do with, but it uses some Hosey music so I thought I'd pass it on. This is a really cool video of Nicole Marquez, a dancer currently in Mississippi who I met while she was in NYC. She has a very interesting story, which I won't rehash here as it is in the video.
I think the video is beautiful. I love all the music she and the director/crew used. I especially like that she used "Cribs" by Hosey, since we wrote that song. There's also music by an up-and-comer whose star is rising fast: Nina Simone! I'm sure she will go far...

This is a quick little video of Goodbye Bikini Island performing a few weeks ago at Otto's Shrunken Head for the Copycat night. The theme this time around was The Pixies and here we are covering one of my favorite songs "Distance Equals Rate Times Time" from the album Trompe Le Monde. Singing back up with us is Amy Carrigan. She is wonderful.
You might notice that this is not the first video of a Pixies cover that we've posted. This is no accident. We were asked to play a set of Pixies songs after the promoter for Copycat caught us playing "Cactus" in that older video. What can I say? We love us some Pixies.
More exciting GBI / Pixies news on the way...
