The great American alt-country-rock-whatever band Wilco, whom I love dearly, invites their fans to shoot video of the cities they're touring in. Some of the resulting videos "may be projected behind the band during the show in your town," says Wilco, "So break out your camera and show us what your city looks like to you."
When you're shooting, keep the important stuff and movement to the top 1/3rd of the frame - this is where the projections will be most visible on our stage set. Please check the Vimeo page for more details and guidelines. Have fun & we can't wait to see what you come up with!
VIDEO ABOVE: "Born Alone" from Wilco's upcoming album "The Whole Love," out September 27, 2011 on dBpm Records (and alternately offered in 180gm vinyl!). Directed by Mark Greenberg. This album RULES.
(thanks, Mikael Jorgensen and Michael Brown!)

Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
