Kearny Street Workshop’s DIY Video: Cast of Thousand’s “Wicked Smile”

Not all music videos involving Asian Americans consist of themselves playing in front of a steady-cam to be uploaded onto YouTube. Enter San Francisco based Kearny Street Workshop, and their DIY Video Night; DIY as in “Do It Yourself,” as in their second annual DO IT YOURSELF Music Video contest.

All of the videos that premiere were made in the span of two months by teams of community filmmakers, musicians and volunteers with little or no budget. On February 20, the videos will also premiere online and viewers will be given the opportunity to vote for their favorite video at the CAAM Video Gallery and decide who will win a spot in the 2009 San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival’s Music Video Asia which will be March, 14 2009.

And because this is a fucking blog and we don’t have to be without bias, we recommend you click on the “rate” button and rate Cast of Thousand’s “Wicked Smile” — posted above for your convenience — as the winner. Why Cast of Thousands? Because they competed in Live 105’s Not So Silent Night’s Local Band Competition. Also: Burt is a buddy of mine, we have a bunch of mutual friends and he’s a member of, our social network, where you can tell him how ridiculously fucking ROCK he is.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
