LA indie pop purveyors Big Whup celebrate the joint release of their first two music videos with a screening that pairs dictators with dancers and pillow fighting with glitter. Band members Drew Denny, Jenna Eyrich, Geoff Geis, Morgan Gee, and Rand Voorhies joined forces with directors Kate Gill and Matthew Chevlen for two whirlwind shoots featuring favorite LA locales (Elysian Park, Pehrspace, the Sweat Spot, Girlhouse) as well as fellow LA locals (including friends from musical projects including Nicole Kidman, Corridor, Essay, Peter Pants, Slumberbeast, and Johnny O’Donnell). Employing handmade pinatas, extravagant costumes, a well-worn stuffed Pegasus, and lots of underwear, the videos for “B.O.N.I.Z.H.E.A.R.T. ♥ ♥ ♥” and “Cover My Eyes” visually explore the quirky bliss for which Big Whup has become known throughout the last year. These two songs comprise Big Whup’s first vinyl single, which quickly went to #2 on KXLU after being self-released on May 1 to a capacity crowd at the Smell.
Along with the debut of the new Big Whup videos will be the screening of a collection of music videos and short films curated by Big Whup Industries, an extension of Big Whup that last year produced the popular What is Happening… compilation CD surveying the best in the Angelino D.I.Y. pop scene and this year released the first Big Whup single. Accompanying the screenings will be live musical performances from Big Whup, Kid Static, Peter Pants, David Liebe Hart & Adam Papagan (formerly of “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!”), and DJ Kyle Mabson.
Part of an on-going weekly concert series promoted by longtime D.I.Y. stalwart Sean Carnage, this All Ages show is scheduled for Monday, December 13, at Pehrspace (325 Glendale Blvd).
