Hanging with Railbird

It's like hanging out in the studio with locals Railbird -- but, you know, virtually:

(Doesn't that question always come up in any important enterprise: eat now or later?)

Justin Cerone, one of the producers of the video, says he and production partner Adam Morrell have been following Railbird around as the band records its new album and plays live shows. He says the video will end up in a series of online clips -- and, maybe, a documentary.

Railbird's playing Art on Lark this weekend around 3 pm.

Bonus: Phantogram, in an interview with Filter, on some of their aspirations for the future: "It would be awesome to have our music paired with a film from Michel Gondry, David Lynch, Danny Boyle, Spike Jonze or Wes Anderson."

I had to do something different for this railbird show so I won't miss it! I had to buy a tv.

Re: Phantogram:

This is probably the 3rd or 4th interview with them where Barthel has said they have to drive to NYC to see great shows, that they can't see any bands they like in the Albany-Saratoga area. there've been some great shows here in recent years - Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Company of Thieves, the Hold Steady (a couple of times), Matt & Kim (and they're coming back soon), etc. Maybe these aren't bands she's into, but still, seems like a bit of a dis to say she can't see good shows in that area.

I like Phantogram's music but I'm starting to get turned off by reading that from them in each interview b/c I just flat out disagree with what she's saying about. Not a biggie, just wanted to vent and see if others have noticed that too.

While I understand why they're saying there isn't enough demand, I also am positive I would use cabs more if they were even slightly more affordable and reliable. I have zero interest in using the taxis in Albany, and would rather alter my plans (if possible) than use their service. I feel like the cab companies are saying this is a demand issue, when really it's just a "I dislike you so much, I'd rather find ANY alternative to avoiding you" issue.
