Okay, I'll start. I really just started this thread so I could brag about my friends.
I just got home from the Technical Difficulties Film Festival at the Palace. They showed the video for "Mr. Quiet" which is classic slasher bad acting goriness with a rock video mixed in. A clip of the video appears in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Then we got to see the new documentary they shot with Derek Frey (more below) of their trip to London, where they played at the after party for the London priemiere, the wrap party for "Corpse Bride", and Dublin Castle. Tim Burton is a fan. Then they showed the world premiere of their new video "Jimmy". It was so cool, cuz I knew most of the people in all of the videos. Their lead guitarist, Trever, was my musical director when I directed "Hedwig and the Angry Inch", and the lead singer, RaVani, played "Yitzak". At one point in the London video, Trever was wearing the "Hedwig" t-shirt that I designed!!

Trever manages the local used CD store. RaVanni once played "Johanna" in a local production of "Sweeney Todd". The rest of the lineup changes on a semi-regular basis...WHY YOU DIG 'EM SO MUCH! :
These guys are incredible! They put on an amazing live show, and are so much fun to dance to! Plus they're good friends. You should totally check out their website, it has lots of mp3's and links to their videos (broadband recommended). All of their recent videos were directed by Derek Frey, and indie director who was shooting for Tim Burton on "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and got their video "Mr. Quiet" into the film (you can see it on the television in the background when one of the kids finds his golden ticket). I can't wait to see them hit it big!
