- Video -: January 2009 Archives

Hollywood Holt, despite his Cali moniker, is a South Side rapper whose video — for "Hollywood," above (he likes that word) — just hit mtvU. Like it? Tell MTV by voting here (via We Do Not Follow).

YouTube's already got video of last night's Animal Collective show at Metro (and don't you love how people still sometimes refer to it as Cabaret Metro?).

Jim DeRogatis' review of the show has been posted for a while here, complete with photo gallery.

More good stuff at Metro this weekend: the Most Dangerous Race tonight (hey, look, we posted video for this show, too!) and some serious wordplay tomorrow night in the Windy City Story Slam All-City Championships.

The city's Motion Graphics Festival presses play this weekend, and tucked in the cutting-edge film event — among all the art showcases, workshops, classes, panel discussions, studio tours, theater screenings and industry mixers — are some intriguing screenings available to the public.

As part of the Ohm Multimedia Series in the Chicago Cultural Center's Claudia Cassidy Theater, 77 E. Randolph St., are these two events:
— The Chicago Motion Graphics Screening, 6:30-9 p.m. Friday: "This screening features three works, including NASA's 'Money,' Nine Inch Nails' 'Ghosts 8,' and 'LE:60 1-Minute Film Festival.' Featured artists include Nine Inch Nails, David Byrne, Shepard Fairey, Chuck D of Public Enemy, and more."
— Audio-Visual Performance Showcase, 6-9 p.m. Sunday: "This event showcases VJs, visual system programmers, musicians, and DJs in a theater setting. Featured artists include Vir Unis, Stoptime341, Peter Kirn, Merkaba, Ontologist, Glen Stephani and more."

Admission is free, but seats are limited.

Missing out on slightly scary dance-rock ever since Chicago collective Ministry announced its "retirement" (at least until their "reunion" ...)?
