Video: “on.” episode 19 with People, People

November 21, 2010

How can beautiful music like this hide in Stillwater?

Last month I realized the trio known as People, People lived a few blocks away from my apartment.

The band was in the middle of a photo session when I arrived to help out with the madness. People, People bought 120 beers to fuel two dozen of its friends.

The idea behind the shoot was to get everyone dancing. This would make the background of the picture extremely blurry and frantic.

While everyone grooved, People, People stood completely still and with all its willpower tried not to laugh at the obscenities dancers were yelling.

Today, it’s so easy to find music and secure a lot of music. I’m bombarded with new artists every day, but my world slows down when filming sessions go like they did with People, People.

The band enlisted the talents of friends and fellow OSU students to help perform, practiced endlessly and turned an empty ballroom into a concert.

The results are nothing short of magnificent. See for yourself.
