Vaccines Release Instagram “Wetsuit” Video

I know, I know, I know. I’ve been rather absent lately. Not only am I a teeny bit late getting this video up, I still haven’t updated you all on the exciting musical events I’ve attended recently: the Laura Marling/Alessi’s Ark show, three days of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and Beirut at the Independent. But be patient! It’ll all be up soon.

In the meantime, put a wetsuit on (or not, they’re kind of uncomfortable) and watch the results of the Vaccines’ Instagram contest. Which, as readers of my blog may know, is actually the second app-based, crowdsourced music video.

Feist Debuts New Single, the Vaccines On Jimmy Kimmel, and I’m Going to a Festival.

That pretty much sums up all the news ’round here. Outside Lands begins in mere hours, and I’ll be heading over to Golden Gate Park to check out the action. It’s the first time I’ve been since its inaugural year, so I’m pretty pumped. I’ll do my best to get some lovely photos for you all! I also get to meet some Owls tomorrow.

Speaking of the Owl Mag (because I wasn’t talking about these kinds of owls), vote for us in SF Weekly’s Web Awards poll, for “Best Local Music Website”. And you know, if you want to put me in there somewhere… (‘sexiest geek’? kidding.)

In other news, the Vaccines are going to be on Jimmy Kimmel this coming Tuesday, August 16th. They’ve also posted new international tour dates, and will be at Outside Lands tomorrow. Big things happening. If you’re going to OSL and happen to take a great picture, submit it to their Instagram contest for the “Wetsuit” music video.

So without further ado, here is Feist’s new single, “How Come You Never Go There”. Her new album, Metals, will be released on October 4th.
