The purpose of the Independent Weekly's Simple Music Video Series is to capture local and touring musicians who we feel are producing something special. The hope is to capture something very simple in order to mirror the experience of viewing a performance as if you were in a small crowd watching a quiet set. We hope for content of the music to be the primary focus of the series, not multiple camera angles meant to keep the viewer guessing and entertained.
Most bands featured in the series will be a sample of the deep pool of talent in the Triangle, while others will represent some of our touring favorites. The series begins with a pre-show performance by Frank Fairfield at the Haw River Ballroom, recorded in January. Each week, we will post more videos, including our local cover series. Please keep an eye on Scan, our music blog. Enjoy. —Dan Schram
Also, Frank Fairfield returns to the banks of the Haw River tomorrow for a set at the Rivermill Series. He plays at 6 p.m.
