When: Saturday, November 1
Where: Bing Concert Hall
From Stanford Live: “When Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn started Pomplamoose in their bedroom back in 2008, YouTube was the wild west of the digital world. Blazing a path to million hit covers, a follower base in the hundreds of thousands and even landing a major network television commercial, Pomplamoose caught fire and did so on their own creative terms. A big part of their success is the quirky VideoSong format that Jack developed: split screens, clever, punchy editing, and guileless charm added up to addictively watchable videos perfectly suited for consumption on YouTube. Join Jack for an evening focusing on their brand of video production, from the conceptual to the mechanics. In the process, you will hear the story of Pomplamoose and about their vision for a sustainable arts ecology through the development of a new online platform called Patreon.”
I’d never heard of these guys but while looking for something else on the Bing Concert Hall website, I stumbled upon their very hip looking photo. And watched what is probably the best cover of Video Killed the Radio Star.
