I plan on making Wednesday’s here a day to feature the visual side of artists. First up I have an amazing live performance by a very young Devendra Banhart (One of my favorite live performances ever) and the Freak Folk documentary “The Eternal Children” directed by David Kleijwegt …
Devendra Banhart – “Shake Sugaree”
Some Background on this video:
I shot this about 3 or 4 years ago I think, at the knitting factory (there is also another song i posted from the same show; http:// called copper kettle). He was opening up for the bunny brains (?), and performing under the name Abra. There were about 20 people in the audience at that point, I’d never heard of him and was videotaping just by chance.
the film look is actually a filter applied to video. (the video camera was also on a low light setting which gives it a film look, and then I did some color correction)
