Local Band Nominated for VMA

Jimi Patterson hand-painted every single frame for this full-length animated music video, using a rare technique known as "rotoscoping."  The band is "Mates Of State" who you can find listed in the local bands section.

You can still get your drinks personally handed to you by the same man who created this great video, although probably not for long, at Crown 116.  The competition at the VMA's is Daft Punk for best animated music video.  You know who we're rooting for.  Woooo-oo-oo-ooooo-oo-oo!
